Datuk Ir Amrullah Kamal, City Council President, said Sabindo could opt for cashless transactions by using QR code-free method of payment from next year at the Sabindo Sunday Market, at Habib Sheikh Road.
Amrullah said that the cashless payment transactions are a global trend and people here, especially consumers and businesses, need to match the trend.
He told us that if the hawkers had QR code enabled, they can use different kinds of payments e-wallet.
It is also a very safe and convenient method, as it avoids pickpockets or robbery or the lost wallet from being held.
To speed up and promote real-time payments, the implementation of QR code payment is crucial. The scanning of QR codes at the point of sale that links up to the customer Bank accounts process digital payments in real-time.
Amrullah further revealed that all parties have given a positive response to the move of Sunday market to Sabindo from Takada and he hoped that this Sabindo Sunday Market would be the longest market in Tawau and will be listed the Malaysian record book, adding that the council will also be examining the establishment of such markets at other locations in Tawau.
In the meantime, he also thanked council officers and Tawau police every Sunday for monitoring the Sabindo Sunday Market's security and cleanliness.
