Date Created




GSM-based mobile communication in Turkey began when Turkcell commenced operations in February 1994. Since then, it has continuously increased the variety of its services based on mobile voice and data communication, as well as on its quality levels, and as a result, its number of subscribers.

As of 2015, Turkcell’s target has been to become an integrated communication and technology services player in the region, operating a converged mobile and fixed network platform and offering a wide range of innovative products and services. Turkcell believes that it is important to offer our consumer and corporate customers the full range of our mobile, fixed and broadband services to meet their expectations.


The Challenge

Turkcell wanted to create a new mobile financial service in order to be one step ahead of its competitors. They wanted us to create a new system that includes all the innovative functionalities that exist in other mobile payment solutions but also to add new features that simplify its partners’ daily life and business integrating our mobile wallet platform. To sum up their objective was to create a new mobile payment platform to revolutionize the payment perception of all its partners and clients.

The Result

After the launch of Paycell, about 1.5 million credit card users signed up while 8 million Turkcell customers have started using Paycell as a payment method. With Paycell, they won the Most Successful Mobile Application Award by Turkcell Partner Program. As there are still 30 million potential Turkcell users to use Paycell, they are expecting at least 50% increase in revenue by 2023.
