Kathmandu, September 18, 2017: In an effort to capture iPhone users in Nepal, Khalti, a premium digital payment service provider, has released iOS app today.
The launch of the iPhone app comes almost eight months after the company launched its Android application.
Khalti is an e-wallet which allows instant, secure and quick online payments in Nepal. The mobile app currently provides cashless transactions for various utility bill payments including water and electricity bills, mobile recharges, DTH payments, money transfers, domestic remittance, shopping and wallet payments. The company is aiming for cashless future of Nepal.
“We are expecting to introduce a wider range of services over time, allowing the users to pay through mobile for numerous other services,” Manish Modi, Co-Founder of Khalti shared to Glocal Khabar.
“With the expected proliferation of iPhones in Nepal, it made good business sense for us to launch the iOS app. The launch of the iPhone app, and the earlier Android app, are an extension of our commitment of making digital payment easy and hassle-free in Nepal,” he added.
People’s increasing attraction towards digital payment
The services are currently urban-centric though, till now. And, digital payment services are made available focusing on the users in Kathmandu and other mega cities.
News about people being compelled to spend days to go to electricity office in district headquarters, and spend thousands of rupees just to pay electricity bill of few hundred rupees are getting more frequent.
To cater the problem, Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) is planning to introduce online bill payment services in near future.
Talking about the same, Manish shared the company seeks to come up with various other services throughout Nepal to eventually enhance digital payment for millions of people. “Everything is going digital, for the comfort of people. The time has developed in such a way that you have no other option but to use the mobile apps for such services,” he said about the bright digital future.
