Frequently Asked Questions
How do I get BigPay?
We were hoping you would ask that! It's simple - download our app on the Google Play or App Store, sign up in 3 steps and you will receive your BigPay card in 5 to 7 working days.
How do I get verified using SingPass MyInfo?
MyInfo is Singapore Government e-service that allows SingPass users to easily pre-fill forms. It uses SingPass to access the personal details we need to confirm your identity.
We only request the personal details we need, and we need your permission to access them.
All valid SingPass account holders can use SingPass
If you are an Employment Pass holder, you can use MyInfo to verify your identity with SingPass. But you’ll still need to upload a proof of address.
If you prefer, you can always use the manual sign-up flow and fill the onboarding form.
Who can sign up to BigPay?
As long as you're 18 years old, and you're a Singaporean or a foreigner legally residing in Singapore.
How much will it cost to get BigPay?
It's entirely free to sign up and get your BigPay card. You will need to add S$20 into your account as part of sign up. But don't worry, it's not a fee. You can start spending the money once you've received your card! We also do not charge any annual or inactive fees, so go ahead and try BigPay.

Getting login links instead of OTP?
This is an enhanced safety feature by the BigPay team made to ensure the login feature better secures your account.
If you are facing any login issues with the link where it keeps directing you to install the app, do check if your phone settings allow for opening links.
