Nepal’s first online payment gateway- eSewa is celebrating its 13th Anniversary today. As eSewa completes its 13 years of journey in the digital payment systems, it is celebrating this day with its valued customers.
Started back on 2009, this digital wallet has literally transformed the meaning of making payments. From making mobile top-ups to fund transfers to making payment for utilities through a mobile app, eSewa has been shaping the behavior of Nepalis throughout these 13 years.
Moreover, it is noteworthy that eSewa now holds more than 80% market share in the total digital payment industry of Nepal.
As a Digital Wallet, It has Shaped the Digital Payment Industry till its 13th Anniversary
eSewa is Nepal’s first digital wallet developed by F1 Soft International, the pioneer group of companies that has promised to lead the digital ecosystem in Nepal. The story of this wallet is interesting as they used to scratch as much recharge cards in order to provide mobile top up facility to the customers in the initial days.
Moreover, the policy hindrances were there since Nepal Rastra Bank had no any policy for digital wallets back in 2009. After a few years, it was licensed by NRB as the payment system provider (PSP). It was really difficult to shape the behavior of Nepali by making them switch from cash-based economy to cash-less economy.
However, it is undebatable that eSewa has been a torchbearer for digital wallets by making various upgrades and adding important features time and again. It allows you to make digital payments through both your eSewa wallet or the linked bank account. From mobile top ups to paying fees for your children’s school fees, from paying for flight tickets to government taxes and fines, you can rely on a simple app in your mobile. Or else, you can also pay from the web version of eSewa.
At present, it has more than 130,000 agents, more than 300,000 merchants, 50+ member banks and more than 300 Cooperatives. Similarly, eSewa is now able to process more than NRs. 5 lakhs transactions on a daily basis.
Introducing Government Payments and Secure Transfer; It has added Comfort and Safety to the User Base
At present, you can pay for 15 government services ranging from traffic fines to social security fund. Also, you can pay to your broker and also deposit money in your co-operatives account. From buying movie tickets online to booking for an event, it has made easier along with reducing our time and effort.
In addition to that, it has recently introduced “Secure Transfer” facility which which will provide them the control to release the payment amount only after they have received the promised product/service from the vendor.
As it turns a teenager today (jokes apart!), it is celebrating its anniversary with its 5 million+ users.
