ONE Bank Limited has joined the race for digital banking and payment domination in Dhaka. The private sector commercial bank said in a statement that it has launched a mobile financial service and digital payment service called OK wallet. The ambition is to provide convenient services to its core banking customers and while also taking banking and payment services to a wider group of customers.
Digital payment is a hot commodity in Dhaka now. Everyone wants to have one. With the growth of the internet and mobile penetration, it is no brainer that mobile is going to be a gamechanger for almost every sector - from finance to commerce to transportation.
For digital finance, it has been an eventful year. bKash launched its app, iPay formally launched in the market and a handful of banks started to take digital banking seriously. With OK Wallet, One Bank is the fifth digital payment player to enter the market this year along with bKash, iPay, Nexus Pay by Dutch Bangla Bank and Upay by UCB.
