bKash is making lives simpler, convenient & modernized offering intelligent solutions.
An early demonstration of a cashless society of the future Pop Up Smart Vending Machines is gradually making its way in Bangladesh. The new Smart Vending Machines called SnacKeeper are being launched by Germania Holdings Ltd along with bKash as their payment integration partners today at SKS Tower, Shimanto Square, Ibrahim Cardiac Hospital & Research Institute, Bashundhara Industrial Headquarters, and Shyamoli Square. The founders aim to install 1000 such vending machines across the country. The cashless system means users would be able to buy food through the bKash App and USSD at these designated vending machines.
Though the system isn’t that new. Earlier, a company Named DIGITong, also started the same procedure process for tea and coffee.
People can buy snacks from it using their bKash wallet without having to touch cash money. The fully digital set up is a great innovation on bKash’s part to promote cashless transactions which is also giving people a glimpse at the future cashless lifestyle. The project will spread across the nation in various locations and they are planning to install 1,000 vending machines by the end of 2021.
BKash Facebook page, yesterday confirmed the news. But, we can see a combined reaction from the people. MIrazul Soimit said that,” Hospitals need this facility much more than the shopping malls. It’s hard to find snacks in hospitals and clinics”. But, all levels of people are appreciating the procedure. They think that this procedure will take the payment system 1 step ahead. But, BKash should look at their charge system, otherwise, if they are taking charge in all the procedures, people will change their policy and go forward to Nagad.
