Wing to provide mobile payments in Cambodia
Written by Chris Lemmon
Mobile payment service provider Wing has signed a deal with end-to-end mobility firm DMI to enable mobile payments in Cambodia. The app enables both individual and business customers to transfer, deposit and withdraw money anywhere in Cambodia, via any Android or iOS device at low cost.
Only 1.5 million people in Cambodia are in possession of bank cards amongst a population of 15.5 million. Regions such as this one have taken the leap directly to mobile service in the absence of widespread bank account availability.
The Wing app allows users to pay their bills, top up their mobile airtime, send money and find the closest Wing Cash Xpress outlet.
Jojo Malolos, CEO of Wing, noted: “With the app, users can access Wing services on-the-go when they use their smart phones. What’s more, it is available in both English and Khmer, making it very easy to use for our customers.”
