My sign up experience
I completed the registration on Jul 25, 2021, and received my BigPay card on Jul 30, 2021. The card was mailed from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Singapore. You can now register for SingPass MyInfo, which makes the process very convenient. When I receive my card, activating it is as easy as entering the CVV number in the BigPay app. When I registered with the referral code, my account balance was 25 SGD, including SGD 20 that I topped up when I created the account.
