MobiKwik has released five more language versions to further connect with millions of customers who want to transact via their handheld devices. The app is now available in eight languages – English, Hindi, Gujarati, Bengali, Oria, Punjabi, Tamil and Telugu.

 

MobiKwik Co-Founder Upasana Taku said, “Indians prefer conversing in their native languages than English. Following this insight, we have launched further regional versions of our app today in Bengali, Oria, Punjabi, Tamil and Telugu. We are certain that this move will further promote the adoption of digital wallet payments in rural India.”

 

MobiKwik powers digital wallet payments for major retailers such as Amul, Big Bazaar, Croma, Pantaloons and others. The company also offers payments at pan-India toll plazas, IRCTC, major gas companies and petrol pumps across India.

 

Regional language users are expected to dominate the future growth of internet user base in India. Being a 1 MB app that works smoothly on EDGE connections, MobiKwik “LITE” is addressing the underserved smartphone users in India, who face challenges of slow data connectivity and thus are unable to access digital payments easily. Users can download this app with just one missed call and sign up with their mobile number only, no email id required. 

MobiKwik has registered 18-fold growth in transactions.

 

MobiKwik has also received the Bharat Bill Payment Licence, with which the company will be powering payments for all utility and convenience bills across India.
