MyPay Digital Wallet: What to expect from this new player?

Digital wallets are emerging in the Nepalese economy to ease payments. In these recent years, digital wallets are getting wider acceptance. From mobile top-ups to making government payments, digital wallets are getting popular all around Nepal.

According to NRB’s Payment Systems Oversight Report 2078, the status of digital wallets is as in this table:

Payment Systems ProvidersNumber
A- class BFIs licensed by NRB as PSPs27
B-class BFIs licensed by NRB as PSPs18
C-class BFIs licensed by NRB as PSPs6
Non-BFIs licensed by NRB as PSPs10

In this scenario, Smart Card Private Ltd. has introduced MyPay as a new digital wallet in Nepal. While there are lots of existing players in the market, this new entrant obviously has some challenges to getting market coverage. In this case, MyPay is also running promotional campaigns like cashback and discounts. However, the users on the other side are expecting some unique services that would help it to increase its visibility.

Let us hope MyPay digital wallet adds more services and brings attractive offers for the customers and grows accordingly in the digital payment system of Nepal. After all, it also has a lot to contribute to the digital economy in Nepal.
