Hello Dimers,
Public service announcement:

Please don’t update to the latest app of Mobikwik, The app is now charging 2% convenience fees to some users(for now) for adding money to wallet via credit card. Only UPI option is fees free and debit card(maybe) as well.

So please add the money now if you are planning to use mobikwik for some payments and avoid charges if it isn’t showing for you now, No one knows when they will roll out the feature(shitty one) for everyone.

PSA end.

2 observations
(1) Mine mk is not auto udpated (which I was thinking in my last comment), but still charging 2% for add money
(2) Mine other mk account, which is also not updated yet, there is no charge yet for adding money via cc..

So its not about app update..its randomly charging 2% it seems and soon will roll out to all..

Alright, so I checked some devices and found that it’s still accepting cc without charges for few accounts . So if you are the lucky one, u can add money through cc and enjoy cc rewards+American express rewards.

paytm I think it is written, Mobikwik didn’t have any such condition previously and now with the changes I am reluctant to download the app just to check.

You might be right but they release these changes slowly. I remember some users reported that mobikwik was giving 5% on Gyftr pay GC on upi but to me it didn’t show back then but few days later. So my post is basically to warn users to avoid updating the app if that’s the case and look for alternatives or add the money now itself if they are planning to add money in mobikwik in near future.

yes. i was not against your post. Even I was wondering why there is 2% charge in my mk, and I saw your post and resolved the mystery..But I was saying that if people thinks if they dont update app to avoid this 2% charge, then still mk will push it even without updating app..So use mk asap before 2% rollout for everyone..

no, I didn’t feel that way, I was just adding something more to your thoughts, so that it becomes more clear for others who might get confused by my post or other comments. If they roll out a feature which is making them more money then they will definitely push it no matter what. The whole purpose of my post and your post also was to alert everyone smile

I will update my opening post with the details now.

As now there is charge for adding money via credit card, I tried to add money in mobikwik using my HDFC and SBI DEBIT cards, but in both cards transcation getting failed (stating unfortunately error from bank side..). So CANT we add money in mobikwik using banks ATM cards? Is there any method to add money in mobikwik wallet other than UPI or Credit cards? Please suggest. TIA.
