As such, the application processes several transactions a minute. To enrich the lives of its valued customers, PickMe has partnered with Visa to scale and grow with the support of Visa’s expertise, global resources, marketing, and consultancy capabilities.

The alliance between Sri Lanka’s widely used mobility partner and the global payments giant has proved its mutual benefit to both parties, enhancing the development of structured digital payments in Sri Lanka. Isira Perera, COO of PickMe, states, “Through our long-standing partnership with Visa, we aim to provide our customers with convenient digital services in Sri Lanka. The exclusive offers available with Visa exemplify our commitment to delivering value and convenience to our users. We look forward to continuing our partnership with Visa and offering more exciting benefits to our customers in the future.”

According to Avanthi Colombage, Country Manager for Visa Sri Lanka and Maldives, “Consumers in Sri Lanka are increasingly turning to digital-first services for everyday use cases. We are delighted to partner with PickMe and enhance the benefits of these services for Visa cardholders, starting with PickMe Pass. Choosing to pay digitally is not just a smart choice but comes with great benefits and discounts, and I am confident that our cardholders will find immense value in these exclusive offers available through Visa.”

PickMe’s collaboration with Visa has set the foundation for the increased use of digital payment methods in the country.  In doing so, the platform aims at increasing financial inclusion in Sri Lanka to move towards a cashless society and enhance the growth of Sri Lanka’s digital economy.
