Namaste Pay joins the Fonepay ecosystem for mobile payment

Government-backed mobile wallet Namaste Pay has joined the Fonepay network which will allow its users to pay for goods and services with an easy QR scan. Both companies reached an agreement at an event in Kathmandu.

Diwas Kumar Sapkota, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Fonepay, and Prabin Raj Pokharel, CEO of Namaste Pay signed the MoU in the presence of representatives from both companies. Several media personnel also witnessed the historical moment firsthand.

Their collaboration means Namaste Pay users will be able to pay at Fonepay merchants through a QR code within the digital wallet app, a feature that had been missing till now. Already, major mobile banking apps and elite digital wallets such as eSewa and Khalti have integrated their payment system with Fonepay’s interoperable network.  

Fonepay is Nepal’s largest payment network. Namaste Pay, on the other hand, is a growing digital wallet. It is jointly operated by Nepal Telecom (NTC) and Rastriya Banijya Bank (RBB).
