Doha Bank, one of Qatar’s largest commercial banks, has been recognized by MasterCard as the fastest growing partner in MasterCard Payment Gateway Services in recognition of the bank’s pioneering efforts in accelerating the adoption and use of digital payments in the country.
Mastercard’s secure and reliable payment platform provides partners with advanced technology solutions for payment processing and fraud prevention while enabling merchants to easily and securely accept a variety of digital payment methods around the world.
Furthermore, MasterCard Payment Gateway contributes to the growth of secure and seamless e-commerce for shoppers and businesses alike. As the current pandemic has contributed to a large number of shoppers switching to digital shopping, nearly two-thirds of consumers in the Middle East and Africa are now shopping online, a rate far exceeding the number of shoppers in the pre-pandemic period.
On this occasion, Ms. Nadia Al Ghassassi, Area Manager for Qatar, Oman, Kuwait and Iraq at Mastercard, said: “As one of our strategic partners in Qatar, Doha Bank has succeeded in integrating the MasterCard payment gateway into its payments infrastructure. For this reason, we are pleased to honor them today for being one of our fastest growing MasterCard Payment Gateway Services partners in the country. At MasterCard, we are committed to working with our partners to enhance and consolidate our relationship with them and to develop payment systems on e-commerce platforms on a regional and global level, whether online, in person or via mobile. Therefore, our innovative payment solutions provide users with safe, reliable and smart ways to pay.” The partnership between MasterCard and Doha Bank encourages business growth and enhances merchants’ confidence in the post-pandemic era, which further supports and advances the payments sector in the Qatari market.
Brik Al Marri, Head of Retail Banking Group at Doha Bank, said: “Doha Bank is delighted to receive this recognition from MasterCard, the trusted partner in innovative technology around the world. Together, we look forward to accelerating the development and enhancement of digital payment systems to create a cashless society by providing our customers with a seamless and simple banking experience.”
