As one of the pioneering electronic money companies in Türkiye and as the controlling shareholder of iWallet, United Payment stands out with its innovative fintech solutions, while the digital wallet Hayhay offers many services together, ranging from money transfer and spend-to-earn opportunities to bill payments in instalments and easy refund options. Both the controlling shareholder United Payment and Hayhay have started to formulate their plans to accelerate the growth of iWallet, which provides a unique and much-needed solution to the market.
