Growth Continues

Entering 2022, the company is already witnessing an impressive growth of its eWallets and real-time payments with monthly active users exceeding 1.4 million in February.

“Going forward, 2022 will see the emergence of Boku as a pureplay payments company, with the leading position in Direct Carrier Billing and rapid growth in other local payment methods, such as eWallets and Real-Time Payments,” said Boku’s CEO, Jon Prideaux.

"We will invest further in building out our network and systems. This year we will broaden our M1ST network, grow existing merchants, recruit more new merchants who do not use us for DCB and expand into new territories. Non-DCB payments will, for the first time, be a material part of our growth.”
