QIB QPay officially launch the First Islamic PoS Online payment gateway in Qatar

Doha, Qatar: Qatar Islamic Bank (QIB) has officially launched the first Islamic Point of Sale (POS) & Online Payment Gateway solutions in collaboration with QPAY international, a Qatari based Fintech company offering a wide portfolio of electronic payment solutions. This solution has been introduced to serve QIB’s corporate and SME clients and support their business banking needs.

The Islamic POS solution developed by Android smart technology will provide innovative, secure, and highly efficient payment processing services.  The new POS supports contactless card transactions, E-Wallet, mobile PoS (mPOS), QR code scanner and online billing and settlement.

Mobile PoS (mPoS) is an innovative business solution, that services delivery-oriented businesses where the PoS is connected via Bluetooth to a smartphone that serves as a cash register (compatible with both Android and iOS), making card transactions portable.  The POS has a built-in camera that allows merchants to scan barcodes which eliminate the need for SME’s and corporate clients to have a separate barcode reader as the new POS machine will serve this dual function. The PoS solution accepts VISA, Mastercard, American Express, and UnionPay international cards.

Online billing feature will enable merchants real-time access to all transactions made on the POS on an online platform eliminating the need for merchants to keep a log of all transactions made and flexibility in time. The POS is available amongst QIB’s existing corporates including SME and prospective merchants.

For businesses that require e-commerce solution to process payments online, QIB & QPay are offering a quick and secure online payment gateway to enable them to serve their clients better, save time, and increase the source of revenue. It also helps in reducing excessive costs involved in physical transactions. By having an online payment gateway companies can give their clients an option to pay online at any time and make a hassle-free process. It also helps in reducing the significant amount of paper.
