Marking yet another significant milestone in its journey, Amãna Bank has partnered with mCash, one of Sri Lanka’s leading payment platforms offered by Mobitel, thereby facilitating the Bank’s customers with a convenient solution to pay a host of utility and service bills at the comfort of the Bank’s branch.
Through this partnership, both customers of the Bank as well as the public can walk in to any of the Bank’s 28 branches located island-wide and settle their mobile bills, water bills, electricity bills (CEB and LECO), satellite TV bills as well as institutional payments. This partnership further facilitates customers willing to donate to charity projects such Helpage and SOS Children’s Village. Customers using mCash via Amãna Bank are not required to register with mCash nor be an Amãna Bank or a Mobitel Customer. Existing mCash customers can also top-up their account at any Amãna Bank branch.
Commenting on this partnership Amãna Bank’s Chief Executive Officer Mohamed Azmeer stated “The mCash payment facility delivers great convenience to customers and we are indeed happy to extend such convenience to our customers through our branch network. Customers can now easily carry out a multitude of payment transactions in addition to other banking transactions, thereby saving time for the customer.”
Also sharing his thoughts Mobitel, Chief Executive Officer Nalin Perera said, “We are pleased to join hands with the reputed Amana Bank to offer enhanced convenience to their customers. mCash is transforming the lives of people by empowering them to attend to all their financial transactions with just a few clicks on their mobile phones. This strategic partnership will no doubt extend unimaginable flexibility and speed to Amana Bank’s customers.”
