AMMAN — The use of e-wallets in the Kingdom has surpassed 1 million, according to the Jordan Payments and Clearing Company (JoPACC).
About 600,000 e-wallets have been registered early this year, JoPACC CEO Maha Bahou said. She highlighted the role the Central Bank of Jordan (CBJ) has played in easing the opening of e-wallets since last March, the Jordan news Agency, Petra, reported on Wednesday.
The rise in the number of e-wallets, would contribute in increasing the digital financial inclusion by 20 per cent, she said, pointing out that the next stage requires focusing on optimising the e-wallet use.
The Kingdom has been providing e-wallet services since 2016. The CBJ has also “opened the door” for a number of e-payment companies to operate, namely Zain Cash, Dinark, Orange Money, Aya, National Wallet and Gadha, Petra added.
