CIMB Bank Vietnam and Viva Republica roll out new CIMB- Toss debit card
By Megha Bhattacharya
Vietnam’s CIMB Bank and Toss app operator – Viva Republica have reportedly rolled out the CIMB- Toss debit card following the success of CIMB and Toss virtual card, launched in July 2020. The new debit card service combines technology solutions and benefits such as the digital KYC solution offered by CIMB, Visa payWave contactless payment capabilities, etc. Users will be required to open a CIMB bank account via the Toss app for conducting transactions at retail stores with a physical debit card.
Thomson Fam, CEO at CIMB Bank, stated, “At CIMB bank, we’re willing to do things differently. It’s a common thread that runs through all the choices we’ve made so far, and broadly speaking, we now admit that we’re on a mission to transform every part of your banking experience with excellent delivery from Toss.”
Customers have the ability to block payments and transfers in case of any unauthorised access to their accounts, while still using their virtual cards for purchases.
Earlier this year, CIMB Bank, Singapore Branch signed an agreement to partner with ICHX, operator of capital markets platform iSTOX. The partnership will enable CIMB clients in the ASEAN region to have access to a faster, more flexible and efficient way to raise funds at a lower cost. iSTOX is a regulated capital markets platform which supports one-stop issuance, custody and secondary trading of digitised securities.
Le Hien Trang, Director of Strategic Partners and Marketing at CIMB, remarked, “We have stripped everything and flipped all the user details to the back and [are] creating something that we think feels far more clean, refined and beautiful to use. Your user experience as a customer is really important to both Toss and CIMB, and we want every part of your experience to feel consistent and delightful.”
