Dapat Vista Sdn Bhd has launched MyPay, a one-stop e-government service platform developed to consolidate individual’s information and payment related to government services.
Services include checking loan balances and making payments for such loans, getting updates on outstanding traffic summons and tax, performing licence renewal as well as lodging complaints and reports.
“Since its introduction, digital payment gained users trusts and its growth is visibly rapid.MyPay provides government agencies with yet another collection avenue towards the improvement of collections. This also helps close the gap between billing and payment,” said Sabri Rahman, Executive Director of MyPay.

MyPay bridges Malaysians with government agencies such as the National Higher Education Fund Corporation (PTPTN), the Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ), The Election Commission of Malaysia (SPR), the RAM Credit Information Sdn Bhd (RAMCI) and many more.
Security of MyPay users can be assured with the Electronic Know Your Customer (eKYC) processes that are widely used for user authentication and verification. MyKad numbers in conjunction with phone numbers and email form the basis to facilitate security. This process ensures that each individual is only able to create one MyPay account without the allowance of duplicates whilst mitigating identity thefts.
“Whilst the launch sees several key government agencies being on board with MyPay, we are expecting to add more services as soon as the technical clearances are in place. We intend to expand into the payment space beyond government agencies such as utility billings and other lifestyle obligations like telephone bills, credit cards, club memberships and commercial obligations,” Sabri added in his speech at the launch.
