A Debit Card/Debit Card-i is a convenient payment card that provides you with electronic access to your deposit account(s) that enables you to withdraw cash and pay for your goods or services efficiently.

  • Withdraw cash locally and overseas from more than 1 million ATMs that display the MEPS or Cirrus logo.
  • Accepted for payment at over 29 million MasterCard or MyDebit merchants located locally and overseas.
  • Your Debit Card/Debit Card-i supports two debit card brands - MyDebit is accepted in Malaysia and MasterCard which is accepted both overseas and in Malaysia. By supporting both debit card brands, more retail outlets will accept your Debit Card/Debit Card-i for payment in Malaysia and overseas. When using your Debit Card/Debit Card-i in Malaysia a retailer may choose* to accept and process the payment using either MyDebit or MasterCard. Please be aware that you are unable to request the retailer to change the chosen Debit Card network. *This is in line with Bank Negara Malaysia’s Payment Card Reform Framework’s objective of promoting payment system efficiency by enabling merchants to reduce operational costs in using less costly debit card network to reduce pressure on retailers to increase prices to recover the higher cost of accepting payment cards.

What is the MyDebit brand/logo on the card?

The MyDebit brand/logo on the card denotes that your Debit Card/Debit Card-i supports the domestic payment network ie. MyDebit only applies within Malaysia. Whenever you see the MyDebit brand at retailers in Malaysia, you can make retail purchases using your 6-digit ATM PIN.

What is a MyDebit contactless transaction?

The MyDebit contactless allows customer to make payment by tapping the card on the contactless reader or holding the card close (2 to 3m) to the terminal without having to enter a PIN. The maximum transaction amount for a contactless transaction is RM250. Any transaction above RM250 would require PIN to be entered.

How do I activate my Debit Card's/Debit Card's-i contactless feature?

By the contactless symbol or indicator as shown below.

Could I unknowingly make a transaction if I walk past a contactless reader?

No. Debit Cards//Debit Cards-i must be within 4cm of a contactless reader enabled by the cashier for transactions to work. If the contactless reader is not processing a transaction, it will not read any Debit Card/Debit Card-i presented in front of it by mistake.

What happens if I accidentally tap my card twice on the contactless reader?

The contactless reader can only process one transaction at a time. Even if the Debit Card/Debit Card-i is accidentally tapped more than once, you will only get billed once for the transaction. There are also fraud preventions in place to mitigate fraud risk. You must notify the Bank immediately to block your Debit Card/Debit Card-i if your card is stolen or lost.

What happens if I have more than one Debit Card/Debit Card-i in my wallet and I tap my wallet on the contactless reader?

If the contactless reader detects more than one card, it won’t complete the transaction. You’ll need to do the transaction again. You should make sure you only hold one card on the reader and always take it out of your wallet.

What if a fraudster reads my card by placing a contactless reader close to my wallet?

Each contactless transaction includes a unique code that changes with each transaction. It is generated by the chip in the original Debit Card/Debit Card-i, and cannot be guessed from fraudulently intercepted card security details.

Could a fraudster steal my card and use it to empty my bank account?

If contactless transaction is above RM250, the transaction cannot be authorised without the cardholder’s PIN verification.

Can I disable the contactless feature?

Yes, the contactless feature can be disabled. You can request by visiting any Alliance Bank Branch or Call Contact Centre @ 03-5516 9988.

What happens when I use my Debit Card/Debit Card-i at an automated fuel dispenser?

The automated fuel dispenser (self-service pump) will authorise the fuel transaction before you can pump fuel into your vehicle by sending a pre-authorisation amount on the payment card to your card issuer.

What is a pre-authorisation?

A pre-authorisation is a temporary hold of a specific amount from the Debit Card's/Debit Card's-i available balance. It is used to verify that the card is active and has sufficient available funds.

What amount will be pre-authorised on my card when used at petrol stations?

The agreed pre-authorisation amount at petrol stations in Malaysia is set at RM200. The actual amount to be debited will be determined after fuel pumping is completed.

What if the amount of fuel pumped is less than the pre-authorised amount?

The pre-authorisation is not a charge and no amount will be debited from your card account, but your available balance is temporarily reduced by the pre-authorisation amount. After pumping fuel, the actual amount is sent to your issuing bank and debited from your card account. The pre-authorisation amount is then cleared within 3 business days after the transaction.

What if my available funds are less than RM200 or if I want to avoid a RM200 hold on my card?

Customers who want to avoid pre-authorisation are advised to go to the cashier where the exact transaction amount would be deducted from the cardholder’s account.

What type of SMS transaction alert (SMS alert) will I receive?

You will receive SMS alert when you perform the following types of transactions:
  1. Card-Not-Present which includes online and mail order and telephone order (MOTO)
  2. Overseas & Local Contactless
