Today, PAYFORT, an Amazon company, has announced a new partnership with DHL Express in Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. The new partnership allows DHL express customers across the region to now complete shipment payments online in their local currencies via debit and credit cards, whilst protecting them against fraudulent usage and other security concerns.  PAYFORT’s payment solutions aims to enable DHL to accept local online payments and make settlements in local currencies. By integrating with PAYFORT, DHL will not only provide a broader range of payment options to its customers, but it will also make it easier for customers across the region to take their businesses from local to global, without limitations and by
providing them with a fast, seamless and secure logistics process to reduce the need for physical cash payments.

DHL customers in the region will be able to pay using local payment methods such as mada card or SADAD in Saudi Arabia, KNET in Kuwait and via Meeza card in Egypt, along with Apple pay in the UAE, which empowers them with the convenience of local payments.

PAYFORT and DHL Express partnership will cover eight countries in the MENA region including Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the UAE. The new online payment feature has commenced in Jordan, Egypt and Lebanon, with the rest of the countries to follow soon.

“PAYFORT is delighted to announce this partnership with DHL, which will help consumers and
businesses across the MENA region pay for logistics and delivery services more efficiently in their own local currency,” said Omar Soudodi, Managing Director of PAYFORT. “In line with our mission to build robust payment experiences in the MENA region, this partnership aims to simplify the process for thousands of customers that trust DHL to deliver their time-sensitive shipments to recipients all over the world.”

“The era of digitalization and ecommerce is on the rise and is transforming today’s world into a cashless society. At DHL Express MENA, we provide different online solutions that facilitate shipping and logistics for both businesses and individuals. Having PayFort as our payment partner will help us improve the overall customer experience as they are offered more convenient methods to

Cashless payments provide more security and faster transaction time for businesses and offers consumers more convenience and flexibility when sending and or receiving shipments” said Ali Thabet, Regional Director-eCommerce MENA at DHL Express.
