In this day and age, Malaysian consumers are usually in favour of going cashless. So imagine our delightful surprise when Watsons announced they were offering this hassle-free option.
As the world’s largest international health and beauty retailer, as well as over 450 outlets across Malaysia, Watsons has partnered up with Boost (Malaysia’s homegrown e-wallet) to offer the convenience of a cashless shopping experience.
