Using the amaze Card and amaze Wallet
- About the amaze Card. The amaze Card allows you to make payments for goods and services to persons or entities that accept Mastercard. In order for you to make a transaction on the amaze Card, it must be linked to a payment source, such as the amaze Wallet, a debit or credit card issued by a licensed bank in Singapore (Payment Card), or other payment source supported by us from time to time. You may only designate one payment source for the amaze Card for any given transaction.
- About the amaze Wallet. The amaze Wallet allows you to hold: (a) Available Balance in Singapore Dollars (SGD) and/or any other currencies supported by us from time to time (each a Supported Currency and toether, the Supported Currencies) or (b) any funds received as a result of refunds, successful chargebacks or cashback. “Available Balance” means funds that have been unconditionally received by us and cannot be recalled by you or the payment services provider used to fund the amaze Wallet.
- Linking your Payment Card.
- You must have at least one (1) Payment Card linked to your Amaze Card until such time your Amaze Card is terminated or cancelled.
- Subject to Clause 5.3(c) or as otherwise specified in the Instarem App from time to time, you can link up to a maximum of five (5) unique Payment Cards to your Amaze Card at any given time.
- You may designate up to five (5) unique Payment Cards as the payment source for transactions made via the Amaze Card within any given thirty (30) day period.
- You are the legal owner of each Payment Card. You represent and warrant that you are the legal owner of each Payment Card. You may not link any third party’s Payment Card to your amaze Card.
- Activating your amaze Card. When you receive your amaze Card, you will need to activate it (via the Instarem App or other available means) in order to start using it. As part of the activation process, you will be asked to create a PIN and/or other security credentials (for example, passwords and security questions), which will be used to authorise your transactions.
- The amaze Card has a validity period. The amaze Card will be valid for the period stated on the amaze Card. Before the expiry of the amaze Card, you will be asked to renew it. If you do not wish to renew the card, or if you fail to renew it, the amaze Card will expire on the date stated on the amaze Card and you will be unable to use it.
- You must keep your security credentials safe. You must ensure that: (a) you keep your amaze Card safe from loss or theft; (b) your PIN and any other security credentials used to authenticate amaze Card and amaze Wallet transactions are known only to you and you do not share them with anyone; and (c) the Instarem App can only be accessed by you and all devices used by you to access the Instarem App are appropriately protected from access by any unauthorised persons. We do not recommend writing down or storing your PIN and any other amaze Card and amaze Wallet security credentials, or any login details to your App. However, if you have to store such details somewhere, you should not store them near to your amaze Card and you should use secure and safe storage solutions. Revealing your PIN or other security credentials to anyone, or behaving carelessly with regards to the security of your amaze Card and/or amaze Wallet may result in unauthorised transactions being processed using your amaze Card and/or amaze Wallet. In these circumstances we will not refund any amounts lost by you as a result of such unauthorised transactions and you will be solely responsible for them.
- When you must freeze your amaze Card and notify us. You must freeze your amaze Card or suspend your amaze Wallet within the Instarem App and notify us immediately if: (a) your amaze Card is lost or stolen; (b) you believe the security of the amaze Card or amaze Wallet has been compromised (for example, if someone has gained access to your PIN, your other security credentials and/or the Instarem App); (c) your amaze Card is damaged or not working properly; (d) your amaze Card has been retained by an ATM; and/or (e) you have identified an unauthorised transaction made using your amaze Card or amaze Wallet. You may be asked to provide details of the issues reported by you, and any supporting documentation, such as a copy of a police report to confirm the theft of your amaze Card or misappropriation of your amaze Wallet. If you have not frozen your amaze Card or suspend your amaze Wallet, we will suspend it after receipt of your notification.
- You are the only person that is permitted to use the amaze Card and amaze Wallet. The amaze Card and amaze Wallet are issued to you for your own personal use only. You must not give the amaze Card or grant access to the amaze Wallet to anyone, and you must not permit anyone else to use it.
- Funding your amaze Wallet. You will only be able to make payments using your amaze Wallet if you have sufficient Available Balance in your amaze Wallet. The amaze Wallet must be pre-funded in SGD, but such Available Balance in SGD may be converted into another Supported Currency at the exchange rate specified on the Instarem App. The amaze Wallet may only hold up to the maximum amount specified within the Instarem App, or such amount as may be necessary for us to comply with applicable laws (Maximum Load Value) at any time. The Available Balance paid to us to fund your amaze Wallet will be kept by us in accordance with applicable laws, which ensure that any funds held by a major payment institution, such as NIUM, are held safely. Please note that the Singapore Deposit Insurance Scheme does not apply to your Available Balance.
- What happens if the Maximum Load Value has been exceeded? If the Maximum Load Value has been exceeded, any excess funds will not be reflected in your amaze Wallet, and will be transferred to a personal bank account in your name. You will need to provide us with valid bank account details to make the transfer. If you hold more than one debit or prepaid card issued by us for personal purposes, under any other program we have made available to any other partner, the maximum amount that you may hold under all such cards issued by NIUM shall not exceed SGD5,000 in total.
- Restrictions on use of your amaze Card or amaze Wallet. You are not allowed to use the amaze Card or amaze Wallet to make a payment in connection with the following transactions: (a) transactions listed in Appendix 1 to these Terms; (b) any activities or transactions prohibited by any laws that apply to you (for example, any anti-money laundering or anti-terrorist laws, or sanctions imposed by the Singapore government, the European Union or the United Nations); and (c) for any business or commercial transactions.
- Authorising transactions. In most cases, you will be asked to authorise your payments or cash withdrawals by entering your PIN and/or other security credentials. Merchants who do not have a payment terminal may ask you to sign a receipt. A transaction up to a certain limit (prescribed by law from time to time) may also be authorised by tapping your amaze Card against a contactless enabled payment terminal or reader. Using one of the accepted methods of authorisation will constitute your consent to carry out the transaction. We will not be liable to you for any losses you may suffer if you use an incorrect PIN or other security credentials. Please note that you will not be able to cancel any transaction once it has been processed by us or once we have confirmed to Mastercard that the transaction has been authorised by us, which normally happens within seconds of your authorisation of the transaction.
- We may refuse to process a transaction. We will be entitled to refuse to process a transaction under the amaze Card or amaze Wallet if: (a) we have reasonable concerns about the security of your amaze Card or amaze Wallet; (b) we have reasonable suspicion that your amaze Card or amaze Wallet is being used in a fraudulent or unauthorised manner; (c) there is insufficient Available Balance or insufficient funds or credit limit under any Payment Card (Payment Card Balance); (d) you owe us fees and your debt to us exceeds your Available Balance; (d) you are in serious breach of these Terms; (e) the total transaction amount in a calendar year processed by us under the amaze Card or amaze Wallet has exceeded SGD30,000 (or currency equivalent) (Annual Transaction Limit); or (f) we are required to do so under any applicable law, regulation or guidance, or by Mastercard.

- Transactions exceeding Available Balance or Payment Card Balance. Notwithstanding Clause 5.14 above, if any transaction that exceeds the Available Balance or Payment Card Balance (as the case may be). is processed by us, we will ask you to repay us all amounts exceeding the Available Balance or Payment Card Balance (as the case may be). All such payments must be made by you immediately.
- Currency of transactions. The amaze Card is denominated in SGD. If we receive a payment or cash withdrawal transaction for processing in a currency which is not SGD, we will typically convert such currency into SGD at an exchange rate determined by us. However, if your amaze Wallet is the designated payment source, and you hold Available Balance in the relevant transaction currency, your Available Balance in the relevant Supported Currency will automatically be debited first. If the Available Balance you hold in such currency is insufficient, your remaining Available Balance will be converted to the transaction currency at an exchange rate determined by us and debited, in accordance with the Policies. Your amaze Card or amaze Wallet will be debited by the amount of funds after currency conversion.
- Replacement of amaze Card. If your amaze Card has been lost, stolen, misappropriated or damaged, you can request a replacement amaze Card. Please note that we may charge a fee for any replacement amaze Card.
