New Delhi [India], Dec 21 (ANI): The Hike wallet is planning to add more services - like booking cabs, bus, train, movie tickets and payment of bills - to its simple set of features in 2018, in view of its unprecedented success.

"The growth on the wallet has been tremendous and honestly we're just getting started. On the back of this growth, we've launched an updated design to make it easier to discover and transact with services on Hike. It's also become quite clear to us that our users want more services. So we are heads down working hard to bring things like booking taxis, movie tickets and more to the platform. Expect these to start rolling out as early as next quarter," Kavin Bharti Mittal, Founder and CEO, Hike Messenger said.

Hike Messenger, India's homegrown messaging app on Thursday announced that it has crossed 10 million transactions per month on its Wallet in November 2017, growing 100 per cent month-over-month.

Of the 10 million transactions, 70 per cent were on recharge and the remaining 30 per cent on Peer2Peer (P2P).

The app has also been redesigned to provide easy access to transactional services on the new homescreen.

The users no longer need to scroll through the chat thread or look for the services they want to access, instead they can view the entire portfolio of services and access them and pay seamlessly through the Hike wallet. (ANI)
