Virtual wallet service, Mobikwik updated to allow cash payment

MobiKwik is a fast growing mobile wallet service in India, and the app allows users the convenience to purchase goods and services on third party merchant websites, recharge prepaid and post-paid mobile, television/DTH, data cards and make bill payments for broadband/landline phones, electricity, gas, and insurance.

The app allows users to park money, up to ₹50,000 into the MobiKwik wallet, and make hassle-free payments for multiple transactions in only one click. The latest update of the Mobikwik – version – now allows a Cash Pay feature apart from the existing payment options including credit cards, debit cards, and netbanking with leading banks. Apart from the new feature, there are also few UX improvements and bug fixes.

The problem is, that the app crashed each time I tried to use the feature. I tried on two different Nokia Lumia devices, one on 3G and the other on WiFi. While the app works fine for everything else, the Cash Pay functionality doesn’t go through.

With the Cash Pay feature, you can add money to your MobiKwik wallet by paying cash at your doorstep. Once you specify your desired amount and your address, cash will be collected within 24 hours from the specified address, and your wallet balance will be updated within 2-3 hours of cash collection. The Cash Pay facility has an extra charge of ₹39 over the recharge amount.

The app is available for free from the Windows Phone Store for Windows Phone 7.x and Windows Phone 8. Update the app, and try using the Cash Pay feature, and let us know if it works for you.

  • This MobiKwik is fraud website. So never use wallet of MobiKwik.I would like to share. My Personal Experience. I had paid spectacles amount to Lenskart of my spectacles using MobiKwik wallet as 10% was cashback - A fraud scheme. I was in Trap unknowingly. From My bank account, I paid to MobiKwik wallet then from MobiKwik wallet to Lenskart. Lenskart didn't got money from MobiKwik wallet. while MobiKwik is not ready to accept that I had paid using MobiKwik wallet. I have all proofs and claiming for refund since more then two months... but none of MobiKwik or Lenskart ready to accept that they have my money. Lenskart Customer Support Team Telling that talk to MobiKwik and MobiKwik Customer Help Team is telling contact to Lenskart. I learned a lesson of not using The MobiKwik Wallet for any payment @ loss of 990 Rs.
