Video call app, BOTIM will allow Egyptian expats in GCC countries to pay bills and invoices in Egypt as part of a new partnership with digital payments platform, Fawry.

In addition to everyday payments such as utility bills, users will be able to pay school and university fees, driving and car licenses, club memberships, and medical and social insurance, the firms said in a statement.

Through the BOTIM app, expats can also transfer money and users in Egypt can withdraw funds through Fawry’s payment and collection channels.

The deal follows the recent acquisition of BOTIM by Astra Tech, who is introducing a new service to the app called Bill Payments.

Adding to sending money services, Fawry said its extensive network of “Fawry Plus” outlets and POS machines will provide local beneficiaries of money remittance with a seamless way to disburse their funds throughout the country.

Mr. Abdallah Abu Sheikh, Co-Founder and CEO of Astra Tech, BOTIM’s parent company, said: “We are excited to work with Fawry to bring a seamless and hassle-free bill payment experience to our users in Egypt. This collaboration represents a significant milestone in our expansion strategy, particularly in the promising Egyptian market, and our commitment to driving digital transformation and financial inclusion in the region.”
