e-pay recently announced that its online prepaid top-up and bill payment platform will be discontinued later this month. Also known as E-Pay EVE, the platform allows customers to conduct both types of transactions through a dedicated website and mobile apps.
The termination of the service was announced via a banner on e-pay’s official website. The company also released a related notice via its two official Facebook pages on April 5, although the notice did not explain the move.
It is also unclear whether the discontinuation of EVE will have any impact on e-pay’s services for physical merchants. That being said, e-pay’s parent company, GHL Systems, previously indicated that EVE is a standalone system in a statement during last year’s alleged data breach incident.
In the meantime, at the time of writing this article, GHL has somehow yet to announce the discontinuation of E-Pay EVE on its website or Facebook page. While this doesn’t mean anything and could just be a simple communication glitch, we still found it quite odd that GHL hasn’t spoken out about it, as we believe EVE is an important part of e-Pay.
