Driver's license and vehicle registration | These are the most important documents you need to carry while driving, and they are also prone to getting lost. With apps like RTA m-wallet, you can carry these in digital format and keep the physical copies safe at home.
Loyalty cards | Such cards have barcodes that are scanned by cashiers during the billing process. Now, many stores maintain a customer loyalty account online which eliminates the need to have physical card.
Bills and Receipts | With your smartphones, you can take a picture of your receipts and keep them stored in your phone gallery. Many stores now send a digital copy of your receipts/bills directly on your phone via SMS.
