Qwikcilver February 2023 Newsletter
Marching ahead with greater purpose this magnificent March. The Qwikcilver platform is truly at the cutting edge of innovation and technology, and this was amply demonstrated when we powered the ambitious UPI One World program which opened the doors of the much-vaulted UPI payment system for foreign nationals visiting India. On the other hand, the march in March continues with exciting new Gift Card program launches in the Middle East region. We also give you a glimpse from the Woohoo world and the exciting programs we had for the month of February.

UPI Program – One World

UPI for the World!

Consumer Promotion Program
Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam – The World is One Family! This is the central theme of this year’s G20 group with India as its president. This is not a mere statement but an outlook that India presents to the world and puts it to action. On these lines we are proud to be a part of the of the unique project that takes the much renowned

Unified Payments Interface or UPI to the world. Starting off with the G20 countries, travellers from these countries can now experience UPI for making payments in India with real time foreign exchange as well.

A Simple, seamless process
  1. On arrival at the airport, encash foreign currency at Thomas Cook’s counter.
  2. Instead of collecting INR in cash, Thomas Cook’s forex expert will assist the customer to open a Pine Labs Fave Money prepaid account and load the INR value.
  3. The customer then downloads Pine Labs’ Fave app, signs in and can start using the pre-loaded INR amount by scanning any UPI QR code at merchant outlets pan India.
  4. On departure, any balance can be encashed by the customer at Thomas Cook’s airport counters

  5. To facilitate this process, Pine Labs has launched Fave Money that allows travellers from G20 countries the ability to pay digitally via their mobile phone at millions of merchant establishments in India using UPI. The prepaid product issued by Pine Labs is powered by its proprietary issuing platform Qwikcilver and is integrated with the Fave mobile app.
