Malaysian bank commits early disclosure blunder of Apple Pay

A bank in Malaysia made a faux pas by announcing support for Apple Pay on its website too early.

Apple Pay

Ambank updated its website this weekend and published several pages to show that Apple Pay will appear on its platform. However, it was done too early and was therefore removed and hidden from view on Monday.

The page has a promotion for customers who would sign up for the Apple service. Those who would register would receive RM20 or 50 but it was unclear about the specific amount as it had already been removed. The page had a banner that read “Pay faster with Apple Pay” and announced that the payment platform has finally arrived in the country.

Ambank is the forerunner of Apple Pay support and teased a launch in July. Its appearance on the Malaysian bank’s website could mean that Apple Pay will be launched very soon, although there is no exact date when this will happen.
