Khalti, Nepal’s leading digital wallet, marked its seventh annual celebration on January 26, 2080 (Magh 12). Since its inception in 2017, Khalti has pioneered digital transformation in Nepal. Starting with services like mobile top-up and bill payments, Khalti has now successfully provided a digital payment platform for everything from event ticketing to government services. Acknowledging the achievement of providing digital payment services in various sectors, Khalti expressed its gratitude to all users, partners, regulators, agents, merchant vendors, and its employees who have been part of this incredible journey.
Within a short period of time, Khalti has surpassed significant milestones, facilitating over 3 million+ users and processing more than 300,000 transactions daily across the nation. It is not just limited to large businesses; it extends to over 5,000 small and casual merchants who have been facilitated by the advantages of the services. Khalti’s journey has been marked by continuous innovation and growth, and in a short span of time, it has successfully built its family of 3.1 million users, 100,000+ agents, 60,000+ merchant vendors, 50+ banks and financial institutions, and 1,500+ cooperatives.
Khalti has been certified with the prestigious ISO 27001:2013 certification for information security management, showcasing the commitment to provide a secure digital payment environment. Just a month ago, Khalti was honored to be recognized as a payment service provider processing the highest digital transactions.
In its seventh year, Khalti has evolved beyond a digital wallet to become a ‘Young and Trendy Financial Lifestyle Brand,’ focusing on the youth. Introducing new services like Khalti Quiz, Khalti Bluebook Renewal, Khalti Suraksha, Event Voting, Ticketing, Khalti Pro, and Khalti Club, Khalti continues to innovate and redefine digital experiences to meet user needs.
Binay Khadka, CEO of Khalti, shared his thoughts on this milestone, saying, “From the beginning, Khalti has aimed to bring financial inclusion to every Nepali. Today, as we celebrate our seven-year journey, we see the fulfillment of our vision. We have empowered individuals to make payments from the comfort of their homes, making essential services more accessible. Looking ahead, we plan to introduce new services and features to serve 1.5 million merchants, positioning Khalti as a financial lifestyle brand with a focus on exceptional user experiences in e-commerce and digital infrastructure. Now we are dedicated to establishing Khalti as a financial lifestyle brand. We remain committed to enhancing our services continuously, providing our users with an unparalleled financial experience.”
To mark this celebration of completing 7 years, Khalti has announced to provide Rs 77 cashback on the very first bank link payment done within the 7 days, starting right on its anniversary from January 26th to February 1st, 2024.
