BEIRUT — Lebanese money transfer company CashUnited announced in a statement over the weekend that it had launched its own digital wallet app, dubbed WeePay Wallet.
WeePay is the latest in a series of similar e-wallet apps that have emerged since Banque du Liban (BDL) issued two circulars — one in January 2020 and a second in June 2021 — that allowed for them to develop.
Green-lit by BDL about eight months ago, WeePay now joins the ranks alongside Lebanese wallet apps Whish, Zaky and Purpl.
Though the app’s launch announcement came over the weekend, it has been active since March 1.
According to the CashUnited statement and a company representative who spoke with L’Orient-Le Jour, WeePay users can pay telecom bills and receive or send funds through the CashUnited network.
