Khalti mobile wallet android app has been downloaded by more than 100,000 users. The app hit the milestone shortly after a year of its launch in the Nepali market. The recent growth comes after the company’s ‘Refer-and-Earn’ offer that has become an internet sensation. This offer allows existing Khalti users to refer a non-khalti user to sign up and use khalti. One can earn up to Rs. 5000 in this process.
Similar to the Android app, Khalti’s iOS app is also getting good response. Its iOS app has crossed 10,000 downloads. A similar trend follows in the case of web users. Excited by the response from users in this short span of time, Manish Modi, Director of Khalti Digital Wallet says, “We are extremely overwhelmed and excited by the support. Never before had a mobile payment app from Nepal gone viral in such a way. Lots of users are loving and trusting us. Now we have added responsibility. This, we feel, is a dopamine given to take Khalti to the next level and bring lots of services and banks to our platform. We believe that this has marked the starting of the era of cashless economy in Nepal.”
