Grameenphone's digital wallet platform GPAY registered over nine million bill payments in 2018, transacting approximately Tk 1,050 crore.
Aligning with 28 nationwide utility concerns, GPAY has served close to one crore households, the mobile phone operator said in a statement yesterday.
Launch in 2009, the service is described by Grameenphone Deputy CEO Yasir Azman as a “convenient, future proof, digitised solution to pay different utility bills, buy train tickets”.
He said the bill payment service saves time and cost, benefits utility service providers and reduces revenue loss.
GPAY wallets can be refilled from MobiCash retail outlets, GPAY partner bank accounts and Grameenphone centres.
