Payong Srivanich, president and CEO of the state-owned Krungthai Bank (KTB), said that since many businesses and individuals are interested in joining the “Eat, Shop, Spend” scheme, the registration deadline will be extended to November 15.

 

He added that the website has the ability to allow one million registrations daily, so the chance of it crashing is very slim. However, he said, only the first 10 million applicants will be provided with travel subsidies, provided they declare where they are headed and that their destination is not in their hometown.

 

Those seeking credit or cash handouts from the government must be at least 18 years old, hold Thai nationality, have a national ID, a smartphone and an email address.

 

After registering, applicants will receive a confirmation SMS within three days, and they can start using the privileges via the e-wallet application within 14 days after getting the message. There are two account channels in the app: “G-wallet 1” is for purchasing goods and services in specified provinces; while “G-wallet 2” gives users discounts on foods, drinks, accommodation or purchases made at shops that have joined the project. This offer is valid until November 30.

 

In “G-wallet 1”, users are given Bt1,000 credit, while users of “G-wallet 2” get 15 per cent cashback on total spending, but no more than Bt4,500 per person.
