Setting up your myIOU account is easy. The process consists of three major sections: create account, verify eKYC and bind a debit or credit card. This article will serve as a guide on how to sign up with myIOU.

Create account


After installing the myIOU app from Google Play or App Store, launch the app.

1. On the Sign In page, select Create Account on the bottom right of the page.

2. The New Account page will appear for you to key in your account details as a new user. Fill up the required information. It is important to take note that your password should contain a minimum of 6 characters with 1 uppercase letter, 1 lowercase letter, 1 special character (@#$%^&*-) and 1 number.

3. Read and understand IOUpay’s privacy policy, then tick the box indicating that you have read and accepted the terms and conditions of IOUpay.

eKYC verification
