Digital mobile wallet looking to add further countries in coming months
Bahrain’s first digital mobile wallet, bwallet, now includes money transfers to bank accounts in the United Kingdom.
The digital mobile wallet, the first of its kind to provide peer-to-peer money transfer, was launched in 2018 by Arab Financial Services (AFS) in partnership with Batelco.
B Chandrasekhar, AFS CEO, said: “We are delighted with the addition of UK to our list of countries to which any mobile user can send funds to family members and friends and look forward to seeing the number of countries further grow in the coming months.”
Bwallet is available throughout Bahrain, in retail businesses, cinemas, hotels and F&B and entertainment outlets.
Users can scan a QR code and enjoy quick, secure and easy cashless payments with benefits through their mobile phones.
Bwallet users can enjoy no transaction fees when sending money to the UK up until September 30.
