Google Pay launches with OCBC; win cashback and Pixel 4 phones just by sending money

Last Updated:

Earn rewards for PayNow-ing someone? It's possible with Google Pay P2P transfers.

The following is a sponsored post by OCBC. The opinions and analysis remain that of The Milelion
The winners of the giveaway have been chosen! Congratulations, you’ll be receiving an email with your prize.

Let’s face it: most PayNow transfers are pretty mundane affairs. You look up your friend’s number. You enter the amount. You hit send. There’s no opportunity to use a credit card or earn any kind of rewards.

The good news is that’s about to change, because Google Pay has just launched peer-to-peer (P2P) payments in Singapore. OCBC Bank customers will be the first to get access, and for a limited time, users can earn cashback and win prizes just by sending money to friends and family.

How do I set up Google Pay Singapore?

To start, simply download the Google Pay Singapore app on either your Android or iOS device.

Do note that there are two “Google Pay” apps in the Play Store. Look for the one called “Google Pay Singapore”. If you don’t see it, check that your Play Store (or App Store country, for iOS users) is set to “Singapore”.

Navigate to your profile settings and tap “Payment Methods”. Then tap “Add bank account”, and select “OCBC” (it’s the only option for now).

You’ll be prompted to login to your online banking account to do a one-time setup. Select the account you want to pair with Google Pay Singapore, enter the OTP and you’re good to go.

Sending money is equally straightforward. Google Pay Singapore harnesses the PayNow platform, so you can send money to anyone’s mobile number as you would with any other banking app. There’s no need for the receiving party to use Google Pay- so long as they have a registered PayNow account, they’ll receive the funds.

Google Pay Singapore P2P transfers have a daily limit of S$1,000, which is on top of the daily S$5,000 PayNow limit.

In addition to sending money, the Google Pay Singapore app also allows you to order takeaway food and make credit card payments through your NFC-enabled Android phone.

Win a Google Pixel 4 (and cashback)

From now to 24 May 2020, OCBC customers can win one of seven Google Pixel 4 phones (RRP: S$1,199) each week through the Lucky Letters contest.

Here’s how it works:

  • Two letters of the alphabet will be announced every Monday on OCBC’s Facebook page
  • If your name (as per your OCBC account) contains both the letters for that week, you’ll be eligible to win a Google Pixel 4. For example, if ‘A’ and ‘O’ appear, Aaron Wong is eligible
  • The individual with the highest number of P2P transactions to unique recipients from Monday to Sunday that week will win

Winners will be announced on OCBC’s Facebook page the following Tuesday.

The full T&Cs of the contest can be found here.

In addition to the Lucky Letters contest, all users will receive a digital scratch card from the Google Pay Singapore app when they make a Peer to Peer or Tap & Pay transaction of S$10 or more. Up to two scratch cards will be awarded each week (each transaction must be made to a unique recipient), and each scratch card can earn up to S$30 cashback. 

I’ve thus far been getting about 2-5% back on my S$10 transactions, and while it’s hardly life-changing, it still beats earning no rebate at all through regular PayNow transfers.

Giveaway

To mark the launch of OCBC Bank’s partnership with the new Google Pay Singapore, The Milelion is running a giveaway with 10 sets of S$30 GrabFood vouchers to be won.

To take part, simply leave a comment with your own version of this epic poem.
