eNets Virtual Account Service Closed Down

Just got email from NETS, the electronic payments network in Singapore, that they’re closing the eNETS Virtual Account service.

The reason given is more consumers are using credit cards and debit cards to make online payments.

eNETS Virtual Account was launched in 2001, as a micro-payment solution for both the Internet and mobile arenas.

I registered the eNETS Virtual Account since it was launched 7 years ago, but as far as I remember, used only once to pay bill.

I noticed that more online merchants also accepting Internet banking fund transfer, PayPal and other payment mode to consumers now.

As new technologies are introduced, we have many ways to make bill payment and do online shopping, such as credit/debit card, vPost, Visa Bill Pay, PayPal, even we can use Cash Card and EZ-link card at home with the card reader.

For the most expertise training in the technological world today, a mcse certification will give you recognition of the world of Microsoft. Through microsoft training, professionals can develop all different types of solutions. For the network professional, cisco training will help you to specialize in implementing and managing networks. The ccnp certification will broaden your career path to be able to professionally work with WAN and LAN networks. The ccna certification is for installing configure and operating routers and networks. Managers who are interested in higher education, itil training should be a must.

I don’t see any benefits using eNETS Virtual Account, as I need to top up money in the Virtual Account first, before doing online shopping or bill payment.

    I’m not surprised. There wasn’t a market to begin with when they started.

    Well, that’s what happens when this NETS department did not meet their KPIs over the years. Shut down and ship out.

    Hi Han,

    Do you know if Buybuttonz belongs to eNETS?
    Is that why they closed the Virtual Accounts to sub it with BuyButtonz?

    Please share your wisdom :o)
