Time has changed, so is ours. We no more need international payment mechanisms and merchants to purchase online. There are few, but enough for the time being, online payment processing companies in Nepal which allow you to pay your bills online, without any processing fees in most of the cases.
Most of them allow us to send and receive money online, buy air tickets, pay utility bills, purchase mobile recharge cards, pay school college bills, internet bills, subscribe newspapers and magazines online; and afterall link you paypal or credit card with these services. Let’s learn more about online payment options in Nepal.
eSewa Nepal: Claims to be the first Nepalese online payment gateway. They have a nice getting started article however it seems incomplete but FAQs page is good to start with. Some merchants and stores where you can pay using eSewa account include Yeti airlines, Buddha air, QFX cinemas, bhatbhatenionline.com, giftmandu.com, harilo.com and so on. They have linked up with as much as 15 Nepalese banks so you might want to sign up and start using eSewa today.

PayWay: Merchant payment gateway in Nepal. They have linked up services with PayPal, AlertPay, SCT, D-Sys and other Nepalese banks.
