While much progress has been made in promoting inclusive finance through the ownership of a basic personal account, billions of people in developed and emerging markets are still underrepresented in financial services. Also, they are unable to contribute to the provision of better access to financial services. The purpose of this study was defined as to explore the contribution of digital financial services (DFSs) in promoting inclusive finance in China. This study presents a theoretical discussion on how DFSs play an important role in promoting China’s inclusive finance. This study uses the systematic review method of qualitative sampling to achieve the goal of this study. Different forces play different roles behind the promotion of inclusive finance. However, DFSs are considered to be one of the most influential forces in the development of inclusive finance in the present world. Many examples of how DFS can improve inclusive finance are discussed in the literature. In addition, different contributions to DFS usage are presented here to achieve the objectives of this study. The contents of the study contributed to a better understanding of the practical impact and implication of DFS tools in transforming the financial sector. In this study, first, a structured review method is followed; second, most important discussion on the contribution of DFS in promoting inclusive finance is presented and third, the relation between the topic and related research is identified.
