Frequently Asked Questions for eCapitaVoucher Micro-Payments

  • What is eCapitaVoucher micro-payment?

    We are launching a new micro-payment feature for shoppers to utilise eCapitaVoucher down to S$0.01. This feature brings seamless convenience to shoppers and retailers with the flexibility to charge full payments in a single payment method.

    Your Point-of-Sale (POS) system should have the ability to accept eCapitaVoucher in exact value instead of the previous fixed denomination (multiples of S$5) by 30 April 2020.

  • How do I set up my Point-Of-Sale (POS) System?

    We recommend that you set up your POS system to have "eCapitaVoucher" as a mode of payment, similar to how you set up "Cash" or "Credit Card" mode of payment. Alternatively, you can set up as “Voucher” in any value instead of a fixed denomination. This will make it easy for you to differentiate and reconcile all payments.
