Sri Lanka’s first ever digital bank, FriMi by Nations Trust Bank, recently partnered PickMe, adding yet another consumer service to their growing list of merchants. 

FriMi users can now use PickMe by simply adding their credentials as a dedicated payment gateway for convenient islandwide travel.

Speaking on the convenience of using FriMi, FriMi Digital Bank Head Nazeem Mohamed said: “FriMi is all about customer convenience. We have continued our progression by adding partner merchants that are customer-centric, thereby offering each customer a simplified payment method that eliminates the hassle of in-hand cash transactions and in this instance our partnership with PickMe works perfectly. Passengers with a FriMi wallet can now enter their virtual debit card credentials which will activate the payment method when ordering a PickMe ride to a selected destination. FriMi users can acquire their debit card details via the app and thereafter the in-built biometric authentication ensures that your payment is securely validated, making it a faster and hassle-free transaction.”

Further to its partnership with PickMe, FriMi users can avail themselves to a special offer valid for 10 transactions when the service is used during the promotional period that concludes on 10 September. Passengers will receive a 25% instant cashback on the first Rs. 300 of the total trip value.

PickMe Chief Operating Officer (COO) Isira Perera said: “PickMe continues to facilitate hassle-free mobility to our passengers. We are a leading tech-based solution provider in the country and the partnership with FriMi will provide our commuters with the luxury of an integrated payment option that will offer convenient cashless transactions.” 

FriMi is a revolutionary, fully-fledged digital bank, payments platform and lifestyle partner powered by Nations Trust Bank. FriMi, now ranked amongst the top 30 digital banks globally by The Asian Banker, also received the Global Award for ‘Emerging Technologies-Led Innovation’ at the Infosys Client Innovation Awards, held in India in December 2017. 

Combining a digital bank, wallet and payment system in one convenient app, FriMi provides its users with unique features such as opening a savings account with up to 7% interest, making payments at merchants, sending and receiving money, paying all your bills, sending gifts to your loved ones and also enjoying the best offers. FriMi can be downloaded through the app store or at www.frimi.lk on Android and iOS phones.
