What is an e-wallet And other questions to get started

Home » News » What is an e-wallet And other questions to get started

As the world is evolving, new technologies are constantly developed to make our lives better and easier. The way we pay for things now is not the same as a few years ago. Back then, we were mainly dependent on cash to pay for groceries, clothes, food, tools, etc. This payment option has multiple disadvantages that make it less ideal, such as being a good target for thieves, losing the cash, spending all the cash before buying the items you intended to, carrying banknotes that contain more germs, etc.

That’s why introducing a more convenient and fast method was necessary, such as e-wallets. The use of e-wallets in the Kingdom has surpassed 1 million, according to the Jordan Payments and Clearing Company (JoPACC), with about 600,000 e-wallets having been registered in early 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

E-wallet Simply Defined

E-wallets, also known as digital wallets, are an electronic payment method that allows users to pay using their smartphones. Users can easily use e-wallets to shop online, purchase different items on the internet, pay for bills, and more.

How E-wallets Work?

E-wallets are composed of two parts: software that is installed on smartphones and the information users provide on the software. This information includes name, payment method, address, amount of money, etc. Meanwhile, the software saves this data and secures it with encryption. After installing the software on, filling in the needed information, and finally verifying the account, users can top up the e-wallets with the desired amount of money to purchase items and pay for bills. By visiting Abu Sheikha Exchange, you can easily top up your wallet, withdraw any amount, or issue a Mastercard.
