This partnership will revolutionise Nepal’s digital landscape, ensuring PhonePe customers can effortlessly conduct transactions at their convenience, regardless of location.’’

With Indian visitors being a major visitor for Nepal, this move aligns well to cater to the needs of visitors and enhance their overall experience. Through this collaboration, we aim to showcase the benefits of using the UPI and Fonepay networks and empower merchants to embrace digital transactions, ultimately contributing to the growth of Nepal’s digital economy.”
