Grab. The Everyday Everything App — a tagline that pretty much epitomizes the super app’s vast reach and offering today.
Grab Holdings Inc. is a Singaporean multinational technology company that developed one of Southeast Asia’s leading super apps, designed to provide users with everything from transportation and food delivery, to digital payment solutions, insurance, and more.
MyTeksi started as a ride-hailing service in 2012 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and grew into GrabTaxi the following year. In 2014, the company moved its headquarters to Singapore, and in 2021 rebranded as Grab with expanded services operating in the island nation, Malaysia, Cambodia, Indonesia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam.
Grab is Southeast Asia’s first decacorn and the biggest tech startup in the region thanks to its seamless and efficient all-in-one app , designed to manage the multiple needs of users in one place. The idea is that with Grab, users won't need to download any additional apps since the platform does it all.
Today, Grab has over 100 million active users and its development includes several other integrated services or ‘mini apps’, but we’re here to focus on the super app’s payment system, GrabPay. GrabPay is a collection of secure cashless payment methods that gives you excellent control of your cash:
- GrabPay Balance: Users can top up their in-app balance to pay for a wide selection of Grab services.
- Credit/Debit card: Users can link their bank accounts to make payments, or to top up their GrabPay balance if they prefer.
- Other Payment Methods: Users can link the app to other payment methods such as PayPal to pay for select Grab services.
See how all-inclusive it is? While you can make payments using your linked credit or debit card, there’s also the option to move money into your GrabPay Wallet instead. Using the balance in your wallet to pay for services will earn you GrabRewards points, which you can accumulate to climb up the Grab tiers. The higher you are up the tier, the more benefits are unlocked.
GrabPay also offers a numberless Mastercard which can be used instead of a wallet — it’s the first of its kind in the region.
