Nuspay Launches First Tap and Pay NFC Smart Payment Card in Nepal

ANI  |  New Delhi 

A global technology company in the payments industry, Nuspay International Incorporated, announced the launch of the first NFC (near field communication) Tap and Pay payment card in Nepal here today. The ground-breaking electronic multipurpose Nuspay NFC payment card was created in association with Nepal Bank Limited and Sajha Yatayat, a public transportation bus services provider in Nepal.

The NFC Tap and Pay payment card will reduce fraud in travelers' payments while allowing commuters on Sajha Yatayat buses to conveniently pay for their journey using the Nuspay co-branded Sajha Yatayat Smart Travel Card.

"Nuspay will act as both payment network and processor, becoming a unified payment technology platform in Nepal. This will provide a single point of service to access its payment solutions across the entire payment processing value chain between financial institutions, merchants, and customers," said Greg Wooten, Chief Executive Officer, Nuspay.

Kanak Mani Dixit, Chairman Sajha Yatayat, said, "This partnership to launch our multi-purpose NFC-based payment system will have a substantial impact on both commuters and bus conductors for increasing convenience and offering complete security against risk of financial leakages simultaneously."

"The fare amount will be charged on the basis of the travelled distance while tracking the entry and exit of the passengers through the Smart Travel Card solution," he added.

Devendra Pratap Shah, CEO Nepal Bank, which has partnered with Nuspay to implement the solution, added that they are pleased to announce their partnership with Nuspay. It will help them usher in a paradigm shift in payment solutions with a secure and advanced payment system in Nepal.
