In recent years, Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM), the Malaysian central bank, has taken various initiatives to accelerate the migration to electronic payments (e-payments) in Malaysia. It sees e-payments as “one of the strategic tools for achieving greater economic efficiency, productivity and growth” (Bank Negara Malaysia, 2011).
