Since its launch in 2017, PayNow has become one of the most popular real-time payment methods in Singapore used by over 80% of residents and businesses. The ability to make incoming and outgoing business payments directly through PayNow has been a highly-requested feature by Aspire’s customer base of over 10,000 in Singapore, including Tech in Asia, Love Bonito, Endowus, and AirAsia. 

As a growing business ourselves, we understand the growing pains of managing multiple business payments. That’s why we're excited to announce that you can now both send and receive payments via PayNow with your Aspire account. This also includes making CPF payments!
