MobiKwik is one of the leading mobile wallets in India and offers a comprehensive payment experience – from paying bills and making recharges to transferring money or shopping from over 50,000 merchants.
The Windows Phone app received a major refresh three weeks ago, updating it to version 22.214.171.124, and here we are now with a new update v126.96.36.199 in the Windows Store already.
The latest update introduces cash pickup facility; limited to Delhi and Gurgaon at the moment. If you don't want to recharge via credit or debit cards or net banking, you can simply place a request for cash pickup. One of their agents in the vicinity will reach you within 30 minutes to collect cash at your location.
I just made a cash pickup request, and the experience is seamless. It's a simple and intuitive process, and the amount reflected in the account immediately. The agent who came over for the pickup shared that there are about 10-15 agents in the field in Gurgaon and 20-25 in Delhi.
The update also brings you the ability to know your outstanding amount within the MobiKwik app, so you don't have to jump between the screens to know your bill amount. Also, you can now pay accurately for bills to the last Paisa. So, if your bill amount is ₹499.16 for example, you can pay exactly that. While MobiKwik users in Bangalore will have to wait for cash pickup feature to be available in their city, they can make water bill payment for Bangalore Water Supply from the app now.
The changelog suggests that there are lots of under the hood improvements as well. MobiKwik is a pretty solid mobile wallet service, and with continuous, progressive updates to the Windows Phone app, they get big props from me. Give it a whirl, and tell us how your experience is.
