The Beginner Starter Kit has always been our best seller product. Understandably so, this kit has just the right item for one to get started with NFC. It is also great value for money.

As we keep adding more product in our store, we feel that it is high time to revamp the Beginner Starter Kit to include  more diverse type of NFC tags. Hence effective today, the new Beginner Starter Kit includes:

  • 2x NTAG203 TAP HERE Printed NFC Sticker

The new Beginner Starter Kit has more product types while maintaining the same price as the old one. The price translate to more than 25% savings compared to buying individual item in our store.


Interbank GIRO fee is now reduced to only 10 sen!

Just in case you have not read it in the news, Bank Negara has announced that Interbank GIRO (IBG) fund transfer charge is reduced to only 10 sen per transaction starting from 2 May 2013. This is a significant reduction compared to previous charge of RM0.50-RM2.00 per transaction.

We see this as a positive move towards online/electronic banking that not only benefit us as a business running an online store but also good for the consumer having the convenience to do their banking anytime, anywhere.

At the moment, our online store is accepting payment from most of the major internet banking system either via CIMBClicks, Maybank2u Pay or MOLPay at no extra charge to our customer. For the rest, with this fee reduction, we encourage you to use your existing internet banking account with any bank and pay via IBG fund transfer. We are pretty sure that you are most comfortable using your own internet banking system that you are well familiar with.

The only downside of IBG fund transfer that we could think of  is that it is not instantaneous. It could take half  to one business day for it to reflect in our account. But this is something that most of us can live with it 🙂

We accept Maybank2u Pay

Maybank2u Pay is a new online shopping payment method for Maybank2u users. If you use Maybank2u regularly, the process is very similar with online bank transfer. The good thing is, you do not need to remember or key in our lengthy bank account number. We will get instant notification, hence you do not need to send proof of payment to us anymore.

As always, this is a secure payment method and we do not keep your banking information.


How to use Maybank2u Pay?

  1. Upon checkout, key in the necessary information and choose ‘Maybank2u Pay’ as the payment method
  2. Complete the checkout process and you will get an order number (you will get order confirmation email as well)
  3. Click the ‘Maybank2u Pay’ icon on the left panel of our online store to pay
  4. You will be directed to Maybank2u Pay secure page
  5. Login with your Maybank2u account
  6. Make sure ‘Ubitap NFC Store’ is shown next to ‘Blogshop Name’. You can click ‘Verify blogshop’ to verify our online store with Maybank2u
  7. Key in your email address, total order amount (including shipping) and put your order number under the description
  8. Check the disclaimer box (assuming you have read it of course) and click ‘Continue’ button
  9. You will then see the summary page and you will have to key in your TAC number before confirming the transaction
  10. You will get an email from Maybank2u Pay confirming that your payment transaction is successful


That’s it. We encourage you to try it out!

Ubitap turns 1 today!

Today we celebrate our one year birthday! One year ago when we started, only a handful mobile phones came with NFC and nobody around us knew what it is all about at that time. We were intrigued by the simplicity of NFC and what it has to offer. Our intention was simple, we wanted to promote this wonderful technology, making it mainstream and have fun along the way.

In our first year, we have shipped NFC products to almost all states in Malaysia plus the neighbouring countries, Thailand and Singapore.

Within this short period of time, we have served university students with their final year projects, curious hobbyist, educators who are keen to explore, businesses who want to get ahead of the curve and everyday people who want to have NFC as a part of their daily life.

Looking forward, we see exciting times ahead. With more and more mobile devices shipped with NFC, we can’t wait to bring in more products and services. Thank you for supporting us!
