Nepal’s leading commercial bank Machhapuchchhre Bank has introduced a voice notification feature for POS (point-of-sale) machine payment. The technology called “Instant Payment Notification” sounds out an alert upon successful POS machine transactions which the bank claims is the first time in Nepal.
The voice alerts will help merchants and customers with instant confirmation of payment across Nepal. As per the bank, the FinPOS machine will issue both a notification confirming the payment and a receipt.
The voice-based notification service comes following MBL’s audio alert notification for QR payment. Earlier, the bank also launched a Tap N’ Pay offline payment service via its mobile banking app MBL M-Smart. Being one of the prominent Class A banks, MBL has prioritized offering innovative digital banking services and the POS voice alert is its latest.
MBL POS voice notification would give instant notification that saves time for both buyers and merchants. It would also strengthen people’s trust in using POS machines for payments.
