What are the benefits of holding an AP-1 account over a credit or debit account?

The AP-1 account has no minimum income requirement. Simply deposit the amount you wish to spend. You do not need to worry about late payment penalties or hefty interests on outstanding balances.

How are my funds protected?

The funds in your AP-1 account are deposited into a dedicated customer segregated account held by us. This means that your money will be stored separately from Aleta Planet's own company bank account and safeguarded accordingly.

The safety of your money is our utmost priority. As a Principal Member of UnionPay International, all your transactions are processed and protected by UnionPay International rules and standards.

We also comply with the relevant laws and regulations put in place by the Monetary Authority of Singapore.

How do I apply for a personal account and what are the documents required?

Simply download our app from Apple Store or Google Play Store, and register your account with us. Once registered, select 'Apply' from the home screen and choose the account you want.

For Singaporeans and pass holders, you can apply via MyInfo, using SingPass. No submission of documents is required for the application.

Foreigners will have to upload their passport copies and proof of address (such as utility bills, government letters, etc), and a selfie video for liveliness check (not applicable for business accounts).

Can I use the account locally to enjoy local UnionPay promotions?

How do I deposit funds into my account?

Personal account

You can deposit funds into your account via your AP-1 app, using PayNow, bank transfer, credit or debit card. Simply open the app and select "Deposit" from the home screen.

If you are a Singapore resident, you will need to provide your bank account details when making a deposit for the first time. This facilitates our return of funds to you in respect of the stock cap of SGD 5,000 and annual flow cap of SGD 30,000, as prescribed by the Monetary Authority of Singapore. For personal accounts, your account should not hold more than SGD 5,000 by the end of each day (Singapore time) and you cannot transfer more than SGD 30,000 to your account each year.

Business account

Is there a maximum deposit limit for my Personal Account?

For Singapore residents

Your personal account balance cannot exceed SGD5,000 at any one time, regardless of the number of personal accounts you are holding with Aleta Planet. For example, if you hold both the AP-1 and Nestia accounts, the total balance of the 2 accounts cannot exceed SGD5,000.

At the same time, the total amount that you may deposit must not exceed SGD30,000 per calendar year. Please refer to regulation 18 of the Payment Services Regulations 2019, available on https://sso.agc.gov.sg/SL/PSA2019-S810-2019?DocDate=20191205.
