He also noted that offering handy financial services that are processed via the e-wallet such as: cash collection, instant money transfer, paying bills through the Jordan Post offices, POS devices and soon via ATM machines, is considered an added value to the services offered by the post and contributes to the development of the financial technology services sector (Fintech).
