DirectPay and PayMedia have come forward to facilitate eLocal government service payments which was launched last week.

PayMedia and DirectPay allows payments for eLocal government services in two ways, bringing digital payment opportunities to millions of Sri Lankans. People who choose to pay through the DirectPay app can simply log into the application through their mobile phone and pay for the selected eLocal government service.

Those who do not have access to a smart device can locate an eLocal Government payment kiosk, follow the necessary steps and deposit the money into the machine. All payments happen in real time bringing a seamless payments experience.
