These days, people can pay for just about anything with e-wallets, including groceries, clothes, flight and movie tickets, gadgets and others. An e-wallet can be defined as an electronic or online device that allows transactions to be made via a computer or smartphone with a single tap.

Some use QR code scanning to establish connections between customers and merchants in the real world, while others are only confined to internet transactions. Transfers using Near Field Connection (NFC) technology.

Most e-wallets, like credit or debit cards, are linked to the individual’s bank account in order to make payments. They’re also usually protected with passwords or identification for security.

The usage of e-wallets also opens the door for many discounts and promotions from merchants, and chance to claim and win coupon codes, vouchers and gift cards for particular products or services which Sri Lankans appear to be particularly inclined towards.
