English version of way2pay.ir takes off

That’s it, finally after six years of running www.way2pay.ir in Persian language we decided to run the English version of it.

Way2pay.ir is a six-year-old Persian online media which is focused on e-banking, e-payment and recently also on fintech. Fortunately way2pay could find its way and influence through experts and businesses in these fields in Iran and many other online and paper media in Iran quote its content in their reports.

English version of way2pay.ir takes off / a screen form persian way2pay.ir

During all these years we were asked that why we don’t have an English version of way2pay so as that foreigners could access to the content. What made us hesitate running an English version of it was that we didn’t want English way2pay to be a translated version of the Persian one. We wanted to start producing content from the starting point for foreigner audience, not just translate what was produced for Iranian audience.

Now we are ready to show the world that what’s happening in Iran in electronic banking, electronic payment and fintech. English way2pay is a chance for Iranian market and businesses to start dealing with the world.

In the coming days, check our reports for Iran banking and payment system.
