Financial technology (fintech) companies in Qatar are constantly innovating to meet the needs of their clients, spurring growth in the industry, according to local fintech player, Dibsy.
Dibsy, which was the Local Payment Partner of the Arab Fintech Forum 2021 held recently in Qatar, offers affordable, straightforward onboarding, and fast integration with a simple Application Programming Interface (API).
“With this tool, business owners can accept payments through their website, Apps, or messaging platforms,” according to co-founder Ahmed Isse, who was also one of the panel of experts at the forum.
Isse said Dibsy is fulfilling its promise to deliver easy payment solutions by becoming the “first payment processor in Qatar” to integrate Apple Pay for its customers.
“With Apple launching its mobile payment and digital wallet solutions, it was only in due time that users worldwide would start using this service. Thanks to Dibsy, Qatari businesses can now take advantage of this opportunity, too,” Isse pointed out.
Not only does this feature make paying online easy, Isse said it also gives Qatari businesses access to thousands of Qatari Apple users and millions more worldwide from over 60 countries where Apple Pay is supported, including the US and the UK.
“Apple Pay has the potential to improve success rates for international and local transactions and a strong move towards digital transformation, which is a big part of Dibsy’s vision,” Isse further explained.
Isse noted that Dibsy’s integration with Apple Pay lets businesses accept local and international online payments quickly and securely from Apple Pay users. Users can authorise payments with Touch ID or Face ID, instead of manually filling out long payment forms. “Anyone in Qatar with an iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, or Mac can easily pay anytime from anywhere,” he said.
As businesses are looking to connect to customers in the global market, payment channels like Apple Pay help local companies reach a wider audience, said Isse, who added that “Dibsy is looking forward to integrating more payment channels in the future to help connect our merchants to the global economy and give their customers more payment choices.”
