The business model of top e-wallet app or e-wallet provider companies
It is known to everyone that e-wallet provider companies are earning the majority of their revenue from the commission on mobile recharge, bill payment, and payment for other apps. However, they have also unveiled other revenue streams too.
An e-wallet provider companies which enable the user to do cross border payment charges the certain percentage of the transaction fee. Hello-Paisa takes 5% as the transaction fee on every cross-border payment.
A few e-wallet provider companies recommend different products to their users and when someone buys that recommended product, owner of that product pays e-wallet provider company.
Things you should consider while outsourcing the e-wallet app development project.
wallet app development is not a cakewalk. Only a few mobile app development companies can build a resourceful e-wallet mobile app. What makes it, even more, worst is the fact that there are a lot of mobile app development companies which claim to have expertise in e-wallet app development by presenting wrong data. Thus, you have to research well before approaching a mobile app development company for e-wallet app development project.
» Security and privacy
The prior requirement of any FinTech app is security and privacy as it deals with money. Any small loophole in the app invites hacker to steal the sensitive data of users. According to a press release of Korean police, 158 cases of e-wallet hacking have been reported from 2015 and 2018. In fact, one of the top e-wallet apps, Google Pay was also hacked. To make the e-wallet secure, experts suggest integrating biometric security features, encryption, and a proper firewall. Looking at the urgency, we recommend you to approach only those e-wallet app development companies which know the ways to develop a secure app.
» Payment gateway and processor
The underlying purpose of any sort of FinTech app is to transfer money from one bank account to another bank account. If you end up choosing the wrong payment gateway which performs a key role in a payment transaction, your core purpose of FinTech app will never be satisfied. Out of hundred payment gateways and processors which are available in the market, you need to pick that one payment gateway and processor which run parallel with app requirements. Thus, we recommend you to approach only those e-wallet app development companies which help you to choose a reliable and scalable payment gateway and processor.
» Custom-built application rather than cloning
For the sake of quick development and cost-effectiveness, you may prefer to develop a clone app rather than building a custom app. Deciding approach to developing e-wallet app is the decision which affects you and your business in the long term. We as the top e-wallet app development company recommend you to build a custom app as custom-built app boosts the business with its data analytics and machine learning features which aren’t compatible in a clone app. However, an approach to build a custom app also holds some limitations like a long development phase and higher cost. Thus, it is the rational idea to go for an e-wallet app development company which provides the hybrid app development solution.
