The new feature enables enhanced convenience, providing customers access to top-up anytime, anywhere. Customers are required to select the ‘Top-up from Bank Account’ icon on their eZ Cash app interface, verify bank details and register, enter the amount and simply Top-up their digital eZ Cash wallet. Currently all banks integrated with JustPay platform of Lanka Clear will be accessible for eZ cash top-up.

Mr. Channa de Silva, General Manager/CEO – LankaClear stated, “In an era where digital payment modes are gaining popularity worldwide, LankaClear has laid the foundation by establishing LankaPay National Payment Network to support platforms such as eZ Cash to move Sri Lanka towards a less cash society. Dialog has enabled the JustPay payment mode of LankaClear for all eZ Cash subscribers, thus, providing further convenience and ease of access for top-up, anytime, anywhere for all its customers. Further, added security for all electronic transactions is ensured via the digital certificates issued by LankaSign Certification Service Provider (CSP) managed by LankaClear.”
Transactions via eZ Cash will conform to the highest level of Mobile Payment security standards. All transactions will be PIN protected and secured by Triple Data Encryption Algorithm widely known as 3DES authentication and transaction security protocols.
