Easypaisa, Pakistan’s first and largest branchless banking solution is deploying Ericsson Wallet Platform to replace its existing platform. Easypaisa which was launched jointly by Tameer Micro Finance Bank and Telenor Pakistan aims to accelerate the uptake of mobile money services among the underbanked in Pakistan. Norway-based Telenor Group, which owns Telenor Pakistan had recently acquired the bank. 

Easypaisa’s partnership with Ericsson accelerates and increases the availability of mobile money services for the country’s citizens, while positioning banks to succeed in an expanding mobile money ecosystem.

This deployment represents one of the largest mobile money service offerings in the world.
