This is a clear indication that LankaPay’s objectives are being met providing true convenience to bank customers with affordability. I am sure most of the seasonal shoppers have enjoyed the convenience of our service, saving time & money during the busy festive season. We are excited about every new transaction that comes into our network, as we see it as a sign of trust and confidence that the consumers have placed in changing a lifelong habit to transact on a common payment platform. With LankaPay rapidly expanding its ATM reach and connecting all ATMs in the country to the LankaPay network soon becoming a reality, gone will be the days where customers will be searching for their own bank ATM”     
The full implementation of the “LankaPay” national payment network will bring about innovative ways and means of transacting into the future, moving Sri Lanka to a brand new era of online real time payments.
