MobiKwik customers can now recharge their mobile wallets from any of the 90, 000+ Suvidhaa outlets across the country by depositing cash, as it ties up with the Mumbai-based remittance company, Suvidhaa Infoserve.
The aim is to allow its retail outlets to be used for loading cash into their wallets. This will overcome the barrier of recharging the wallet via cards or net banking thereby expanding the user base of people using mobile wallets.
Paresh Rajde, chairman of Suvidhaa Infoserve, said, “Despite the fact that more than 600 million people in India own debit or credit cards, over 90% of our population still do not transact online.”
“Our partnership with MobiKwik is yet another attempt to bridge this gap by offering various payment services to both evolved and non-evolved customers with the assurance of instant, safe and secure transactions,” he added.
This partnership also brings into the ambit of mobile e-commerce, those customers who are yet unbanked or do not own debit cards or credit cards.
Further, even if customers, who are unwilling to opt for card payment or net-banking, and are not confident about sharing their bank details owing to security reasons, can now make cash payments through Suvidhaa outlets for cash loading in their MobiKwik m-wallets after downloading the app on their phones and registering themselves.
