QIWI was developed to empower security-conscious Russians to make payments online without having to transmit sensitive bank account or credit card details over the internet. QIWI Wallet is a simple way to transfer money, and receive and make payments.

How to use QIWI Wallet

A user can sign up to QIWI, by downloading the app on their digital device (mobile phone) and creating an account. Once a payment is initiated, an invoice will be created in the user’s QIWI Wallet account.
