Contactless Payments Grow in Popularity in the UAE, Says Timetric in Its Report Available at MarketPublishers.com

12 Oct 2016 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – At present, the demand for payroll cards is on the rise in the UAE, and this tendency is supported by big expatriate population as well as the WSP policy of the government.

Some steps have been already taken to satisfy this growth. For instance, a prepaid salary card was issued in February 2016 due to collaboration of local banks and UnionPay International. Prepaid cards were launched a couple of years before that in the country.

The interest in contactless technologies is also growing. This technology was introduced to a range MasterCard credit cardholders in November 2015. A credit card having contactless functionality was issued in January 2016 by Rakbank. Another important development is the launching of a mobile app in August 2016.
