Khalti has integrated NEPALPAY QR for digital transactions on smartphones. Now, users of Khalti can scan and pay using the NEPAL PAY QR code at merchants.
Khalti believes that the recently-integrated NEPALPAY QR will be hugely beneficial to its users for mobile payment. Using the Khalti digital wallet, users can now quickly scan and pay using the NEPAL PAY QRs at restaurants, shops, malls, movies, and more. Across Nepal, there are over 3 lakh merchants employing NEPALPAY QR for electronic payment. NEPAL PAY QR is a payment processor operated by Nepal Clearing House Ltd (NCHL).
Binay Khadka, Khalti’s Chief Executive Officer spoke fondly about this collaboration. He said:
“Khalti’s QR payment has been one of the most convenient services for our users. Hence, with this partnership, we aim to enable existing and upcoming Khalti users to enjoy seamless payments with NEPALPAY QR on top of existing FonePay and Union Pay QR.”
