Create A Digital Wallet App

A digital wallet is a financial transaction application that runs on mobile devices. In today’s digital era, people demand the freedom to purchase anything and be able to pay from their digital wallets.

With technological advancement, making digital payments has become easier than ever before. Anyone can use mobile payment platforms to pay and accept payments online. Therefore, creating a digital payments wallet can be a great business opportunity.

To create a digital wallet, conduct extensive market research and create a business plan. It would help if you could hire competent programmers to create a secure payment gateway.

Varna, Varna, Bulgaria

Case Study

My name is Yavor Petrov and I’m the CEO of iCard - a unique and 100% digital bank account alternative.

Since the launch in late 2017 , the iCard app got around 500,000 downloads. An increasing number of our users opt to use our accounts for getting salaries paid in because of the security tools we have embedded. Everyone has their own particular favourite feature, but spending money in a way that provides better than expected funds protection is the main conversion point and we seek any opportunity to emphasize it.

Punit Thakker (from Dubai - United Arab Emirates) started Finvault almost 2 years ago.

Hi everyone, my name is Punit Thakker and I am the CEO and co-founder of Finvault – the digital wallet that’s on a mission to financially connect the world.
