Khalti is a mobile wallet, payment gateway & service provider in Nepal like e-sewa. Paypal which is the faster, safer way to send money, make an online payment is not supported in Nepal. E-sewa first introduced online payment in Nepal but soon Khalti was launched in 2017 by Janaki Technology, which has been in the software product industry since 2010.
KHALTI DIGITAL WALLET
The digital wallet is an electronic device or online service where the user can make an electronic transaction. Digital Wallet can be considered environment-friendly medium for monetary services as it reduces the use of paper money and saves a lot of money from a country like Nepal, for printing new paper money each year. It is completely new to Nepali people and still, people are afraid of doing online payments through the digital wallets.
Even though Khalti is not the first medium of online payment gateway it has gained more popularity in recent days. Khalti was declared the global winner of Google Business Group Storytelling Contest 2017. It conducts the “Smart Chhori Campaign ” in Lalitpur supported by Spring Accelerator backed by UK’s Department for International Development (DFID), the U.S Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs & Trade (DFAT). The main aim of conducting such a campaign is to make girls familiar with digital transactions and help them learn management skills, speaking skills, become financially independent. This campaign helps to bring gender digital divide in Nepal.
