ShopeePay Offering RM5 Free Credit to Youths Between 18 to 20 Years Old

In preparation for the government’s eBelia initiative – which offers eligible Malaysians RM150 ewallet credit – ShopeePay is organising a rather interesting campaign. If you’re between the age of 18 to 20 years old, you can get RM5 free credit from the ewallet service.

Of course, there is a caveat to this, though it’s really a very simple process. If you meet the age requirement, all you need to do is to activate your ShopeePay Premium account to get the RM5 credit. In order to do so, you just need to verify your ShopeePay account with your IC number.

Once you’ve successfully activated your ShopeePay Premium account, the RM5 credit will be sent to your account within five working days. Do note that this campaign (which is only valid until 31 May) is separate from the eBelia initiative. The company mentioned that more benefits will be offered to those that claim the RM150 eBelia credit with ShopeePay.

To recap, the RM150 eBelia credit is offered to Malaysians between the age of 18 to 20 (born from 2001 to 2003). You are also eligible if you’re a full-time student undertaking a “diploma or SKM4 (and above) in a public or private institution of higher learning in Malaysia recognised by the ministries.”

Aside from ShopeePay, Touch ‘n Go eWallet, BigPay, and Boost are also selected for the eBelia initiative. You can start claiming for the RM150 credit from either one of these ewallet services from 1 June to 22 July, but note that all of the credit has to be spent by 31 July 2021.
