The population of Ukraine is mostly accustomed to using cash in all areas of their lives and has problems trusting banking institutions. This distrust can be attributed to the bureaucratic requirements of banks such as; the large number of documents, mobile banking services only within their bank, general inconveniences and commission for interaction between banks. Uplata is designed to change the customer experience in the field of finance, and to help them transition into a cashless life
