Using Touch n Go card to buy fast food in Malaysia will be a reality

Touch n Go card, famous for its usage as a pre-load cash card used mainly for transportation and toll collection, is now expanding their applications and services towards the retail purchase, starting with particularly the fast-food industry.

One of the application offered is enable the user to buy burger, doughnut or fastfood from 21 outlets involved in a pilot scheme for Touch n Go card. Among the participating outlets are A&W, Burger King, Dunkin' Donut, 7-eleven, Carrefour hypermarkets, Caltex convenience stores and Cineleisure.

The company is targeting 5-10% of the carholders to use the card for retail purchase, emulating the success of the Hong Kong's Octopus card (20% usage for retail purchase.)
