Scope

- To capitalize on the rising adoption of alternative payment solutions among UAE residents, Samsung collaborated with a number of banks and payment networks to launch its Samsung Pay m-payment service in April 2017. It allows users to conduct payments across all form of terminals, including magnetic stripe, EMV, and NFC. In January 2017, UnionPay collaborated with Mashreq Bank to introduce its host card emulation- and tokenization-based m-payment service QuickPass. Users can pay using their UnionPay QuickPass chip card or mobile QuickPass-enabled smartphones and wearable devices at contactless POS terminals. In August 2016, telecommunications company Etisalat launched Etisalat Wallet, a mobile wallet that allows consumers to pay for utility bills, parking tickets, and the purchase of goods and services from participating domestic and international retailers, as well as topping up Etisalat mobile phone credit.
- To promote card-based payments in the UAE, Mashreq Bank and security solutions provider Oberthur Technologies (OT) introduced an instant card issuance service in April 2017. Using OT’s solution, Mashreq Bank can promptly issue personalized payment cards to its consumers at the time of opening an account. The service is currently installed at 35 Mashreq Bank branches in both the UAE and Qatar, helping drive the issuance of more than 40 debit and credit card products. Reducing the amount of time it takes to issue payment cards has resulted in increased cards in circulation in the country.
- To transform the UAE into a digitized society, 16 equity partner banks - National Bank of Abu Dhabi (NBAD), Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank (ADCB), Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank (ADIB), Mashreq Bank, Dubai Islamic Bank (DIB), Commercial Bank of Dubai (CBD), RAKBANK, United National Bank (UNB), Al Hilal Bank, Sharjah Islamic Bank (SIB), Al Masraf, Bank of Sharjah, Invest Bank, United Arab Bank (UAB), National Bank of Fujairah (NBF), and National Bank of Umm Al Quwain (NBQ) - officially launched the Emirates Digital Wallet platform in May 2017. The app is designed to provide a convenient and efficient payment system to UAE residents. It is regulated by the central bank and developed under the supervision of the UAE Banks Federation - a body that aims to promote and improve the UAE’s banking sector. The move is anticipated to reduce dependency on cash and provide the population with access to financial services including payments and fund transfers using mobile phones.
