My Opinion on Restricted International Payment System in Nepal
Nepali residence are facing lots of problems due to unavailability of international payment system in Nepal. In the matter of payment, Nepal government should give proper vision on it. People are working Freelancing but they are not able to receive their payment. This problem should be solved. Lots of Nepalese people can get benefits from it.
Online payment gateway of Nepal such as eSewa, Khalti, Ipay should be use internationally. If international payment is accept from eSewa then them we can get lots of advantage. Our government should have concept on how international payment can help to Nepalese people. I request to the people who are in authority to implement international payment system.It can be done by making certain rules and regulations. If you all people make effort an step up together to implement international payment system in Nepal then surely there will be the facility of international payment syetem in Nepal too.
