Since the launch of the Hawkers Go Digital programme in June 2020, more than half of 18,000 stallholders in hawker centers, coffee shops and industrial canteens now offer e-payment solutions. Amongst hawkers aged 60 and above located in hawker centres administered by the National Environment Agency (including cooked food and markets stalls), 47% have adopted e-payment.
