Enhancing customer convenience by leaps and bounds, Mobitel expanded its reach to millions of its consumers to conveniently settle bills and obtain reloads through People’s Bank newly-digitalised infrastructure. Mobitel proactively enabled its customers to pay bills and reload via People’s Wave Mobile Banking APP, the new revolutionary digital app by People’s Bank, along with encouraging customers to use the bank’s kiosk machines located at self-banking units island-wide during the period of the joint promotion which started recently.

People’s Bank promoted Mobitel reload and bill payments through its People’s Wave mobile banking app and Kiosk Machines through 24 hours/365 days for Mobitel customers. In exciting offers, customers were treated to free 2GB for the first Rs. 200 Mobitel reload or Mobitel payments and a Rs. 50 discount for transactions done through the kiosk for the first post-paid Mobitel bill payment during the promotional period. The promotion period is from 1 to 31 August. 

Commenting on the partnership, Mobitel CEO Nalin Perera said, “We are pleased to strengthen our portfolio of elite partnerships yet again with a tie-up with People’s Bank, a respected financial institution, which is a household name in the country. Mobitel is committed to infusing convenience into people’s lives and this partnership was indeed a great way to encourage people to leverage on Mobitel and People’s Bank’s advanced digital platforms to conduct daily financial transactions with greater ease.” 

Adding further, People’s Bank CEO/GM N. Vasantha Kumar said, “People’s Bank is on an aggressive digitalisation journey and our association with valuable partners such as Mobitel, the National Mobile Service Provider, helped us to reach a wider audience. Apart from delivering greater speed and benefits to customers, we were pleased with the financially inclusive nature of this partnership, helping bridge the digital divide. This partnership coincided with People’s Bank’s anniversary celebrations, which was a moment of pride for us.”
