As part of BIBD’s efforts to support the de-cashing of the economy with seamless transactions, BIBD has already introduced digital conveniences such as BIBD Quickpay for QR code payments, BIBD vCard or Virtual Mastercard, its Mastercard Contactless and Visa payWave under its BIBD NEXGEN platform.

At the same time, BIBD is keen to partner with local institutions to create alliances to improve access and create more opportunities for the ease of doing business in Brunei Darussalam, while improving the infrastructure for a faster and more secure digital economy. Its first alliance came earlier in the year by powering Progresif Pay, Progresif’s digital payment solution.

As the demand for ease of payments from customers and merchants increase as a reflection of Brunei Darussalam’s smart society with among the highest social media penetration and mobile phone penetration, BIBD will always be on the lookout for digital innovations to complement its suite of digital payment solutions. Not far from the horizon, BIBD will be introducing the latest version of its BIBD NEXGEN Mobile app which will include its latest payment convenience: the BIBD NEXGEN Wallet.

BIBD, leading this digital initiative will be open to other wallet and payment solutions such as Apple Pay and Google Pay, and would gauge our further investments within this based on the public’s adoption to the cashless economy and smart nation initiative.

Paying made easy by BIBD NEXGEN Wallet

A first for Brunei Darussalam, the BIBD NEXGEN Wallet will allow BIBD customers to perform NFC (Near Field Communication) payments using their NFC supported android devices at merchants via the BIBD NEXGEN Mobile application.

This latest technological addition creates a fast and secure alternative to cash payments as the supporting technology and security makes payments seamless, with the added benefit of allowing payments to be made offline (without access to the internet). This can be used at any contactless-enabled terminal at more than thirty million merchants worldwide.
