Digital wallet Khalti android app has crossed 1 Lakh (100,000) user downloads. The app hit the milestone shortly after one year of its launch in the Nepali market. The recent growth comes after company’s ‘refer-and-earn’ offer that has become an internet sensation in Nepal recently. This offer allows existing Khalti user to refer a non-khalti user to sign up and use Khalti. One can earn up to Rs. 5000 in this process.
Downloads of Khalti in iOS
Similar to the Android app, Khalti’s iOS app is also getting wonderful responses. Its iOS app crossed 10,000 downloads on Saturday, February 24. A similar trend follows in the case of web users.
With the exciting response from users in this very short span of time, Manish Modi, Director of Khalti Digital Wallet, says, “We are extremely overwhelmed and excited to get love and support from users like this. Never before had a mobile payment app from Nepal gone viral in such a way. Lots of users are loving and trusting us. Now we have lot more responsibility added on us. This, we feel, is a dopamine given us to take Khalti to the next level, and bring lots of services and banks to our platform. We believe that this has marked the starting of the era of cashless economy in Nepal.”

At a time when cashless transactions are on the rise all across the globe, Nepal is also moving in the same direction. Our mission is to enable cashless payment at local grocery stores, bus/taxi fares, petrol pumps, multiplexes, and restaurants among others, and ultimately make Nepal cashless.
On October 12 last year, Khalti was declared the winner of GBG Storytelling Contest, a global startup competition. Khalti is also recognized globally for their work in the mission of cashless Nepal. In a press release on Sunday, they assured of relentlessly work to simplify people life through cashless payments. We (Nepalitelecom) would also like to congratulate Khalti for achieving this remarkable user base.
