Now you can use FonePay to pay for boating at Phewa Lake in Pokhara. The leading payment service operator has brought the service to the popular tourist destination of the metropolitan city to promote tourism as well as digital payment.
The digital transaction service is expected to bring convenience to visitors and also promote the digital economy.
Prior to this, the traditional cash system was in practice for payment. But after FonePay has been introduced, the attraction among visitors towards the popular payment operator also increased.
FonePay and Phewa Lake Boat Association recently formalized their cooperation to introduce FonePay payment to the tourist hotspot.
The service was launched in the presence of Guru Prasad Poudel, Executive Director of Nepal Rastra Bank, and Diwas Sapkota, CEO of FonePay at a ceremony. On the occasion, a boating competition was organized while comedian Sandip Chhetri entertained the audience. Mr. Chhetri is a brand ambassador of FonePay.
FonePay is a licensed leading payment service operator in Nepal operated under F1Soft Group. It is also the first Non-card based PSO in the country to achieve PCI DSS certification. The service connects over 63+ partners with over 17M+ registered customers and 900K+ merchants in Nepal.
FonePay is available in digital wallets and mobile banking apps through which smartphone users can Scan & Pay for products and services.
