PayNow is extended to businesses. As a business owner, you can use PayNow to receive payments from other businesses and individuals instantly with just your Unique Entity Number (UEN) or a PayNow QR code. You can also make payments via PayNow Corporate to businesses using their UEN and to individuals using either their NRIC/FIN or mobile number.
The greatest advantage of PayNow Corporate is that you will receive payments instantaneously. This is better than cash and cheque as you will still need to deposit the cash into a bank. For added convenience, you may also generate a PayNow QR code to be displayed at your business premise(s), invoices, website, blog or other social media channels.
Note: We will notify you of the status once the registration has been completed.
