    A good question indeed. Given your current situation, it is highly recommended that you file for bankruptcy so that your debt would stop accumulating and your monthly repayments would be lower. After the making of the Bankruptcy order, your creditors cannot charge interest for the principal sum that you owe them and unlike before, your Official Assignee will decide a suitable amount of monthly contribution that you willhave to make after taking into account what you need for yourself and your family.

    Liquid Pay / Fave Group

    Liquid Pay is a much smaller player in the scene, but I am seeing more and more of that bright blue logo nowadays. Liquid Group is a payments technology company that works with financial institutions and telcos to enhance mobile payment capabilities. Amidst the competitive market, it seems that Liquid Pay has an uphill battle acquiring customers from other mobile wallets that boasts more integration with other uses like GrabPay and DBS PayLah. Yet, given the circumstances, Liquid Pay is surprisingly widely accepted at food and beverage outlets.

    NETSPay / Electronic Transfers Singapore

    This platform provides zero flexibility of refunding from wallet if there is an error in the process of toping up the amount. Been told by Customer service that the only way is to terminate the account and the refund will be credited after 2 weeks. The UI as well have to be clear at the home screen on which default payment mode are we on as I've been told that the payment mode might switch every time after updating the app

    Face to face verification via live video call rather than visiting a branch

    FlexM / FlexM

    I think it is more seamless if we could have a face to face verification via live video call rather than having to travel all the way since the idea is convenience anyway. The direct bank to card transfer was good but they could consider including wallet to bank as well. It would also be nice if they include multiple currencies for multiple wallets with attractive packages for Malaysia especially since other wallets/banks don’t have Malaysia. I would also fancy if they ensure that the interface updates promptly especially for remaining balance and suspended cards and include any charges upfront before users make payments
