MobiKwik Lite, a light mobile wallet that is easy to understand and works even on basic Internet connection, has registered over 20 lakh downloads within the first two days of launch.
“We launched MobiKwik Lite with an objective to help masses across the country go cashless. So far, we have registered over 20 lakh users and the number is growing significantly by the hour,” Co-founder, MobiKwik, Upasana Taku said.
MobiKwik had launched MobiKwik ‘Lite’earlier this week. It is less than 1 mb in size and can be downloaded directly by any shopkeeper or retailer by giving a missed call from any android smartphone, even without an email id and without having a Google Play Store account.
The app also enables users in receiving payments through UPI and wallets, including MobiKwik by sending an SMS to their customers. Bank transfers are also free for all MobiKwik Lite users till March 31, 2017. The app is available in Hindi and English languages and other Indian languages are being launched shortly.
“MobiKwik Lite has a very simple interface for the sellers and their customers do not even need to download the app to make payments. We hope to reach the milestone of 10 million downloads by early 2017.” Taku added.
