Transfer Funds to Banks

Do you remember going to a bank to take out cash and then going to another bank to make deposits? Say goodbye to those old methods of transferring funds. Just take out your phone, log in to your account and hit transfer to whichever bank’s account you want to transfer.

Pay Utility Bills

Not just that you no longer need to go to the bank, but you also don’t need to stand in line for making payment for your internet, drinking water, electricity bills, or even school fee payments. You can do all that just sitting on your couch watching your favorite movie.

Load Digital Wallets

Internet Banking vs. Mobile Banking

  • Internet Banking means carrying out your banking transactions from the internet instead of physically visiting the bank. The bank will provide you with a separate profile and a separate password. This will allow you to log in to your account on the bank’s official website.

On the other hand, mobile banking is pretty similar to that of internet banking. You will log in to a mobile app instead of the website.

  • You can easily access your mobile banking with your mobile devices like cell phones or tablets.

However, you need a laptop or a computer, and an Internet connection to access internet banking.

  • In Mobile Banking, you can transfer funds with IMPS (Immediate Payment Service), NEFT (National Electronic Funds Transfer System), or through RTGS (Real Time Gross Settlement).

On the contrary, you can transfer funds in Internet Banking through NEFT or RTGS.

  • Mobile Banking allows quick services but you have limited access to your account. Meanwhile, all sorts of services are possible with internet banking.

Therefore, to conclude, you can use either internet banking or mobile banking as per your wish. You can easily use mobile banking to make everyday transactions. Companies, on the other hand, have complex and comprehensive transactions and hence prefer to use internet banking.

With that said, we hope your doubts are cleared with mobile banking in Nepal, the activation procedure, the benefits of mobile banking, and the differences against internet banking.
