    Whereas the international user didn’t trust their to make an account on it.

  • Why not Pakistan introduce alipay? A local payment system is necessary, so SBP can monitor payments flows and get rid of private online payment / fund transfer through mobile phone companies or eassy pasa.

  • First Pakistan should have local reliable..swift payment system..while we are using so many mobiles companies..Easypaisa like local money transfer systems..Any new on line payment system will be wellcome..
