QNB, the largest financial institution in the Middle East and Africa, has launched ‘WeChat Pay’ and ‘AliPay+’ to its existing broad range of payment methods accepted by its merchant network in Qatar, making it the first bank in Qatar to launch these services.
The newly launched services come to emphasise QNB’s continuous leading position in cards and retail payment acceptance, and highlights the bank’s efforts in offering innovative and convenient shopping and payment services to its merchants and customers.
These mobile payment solutions are a powerful additional tool for merchants wishing to attract and gain the loyalty of customers and shoppers travelling abroad.
Commenting on the partnership, Adel Ali al-Malki, general manager QNB (Group Retail Banking) said, “QNB is the first bank in Qatar to introduce such innovative international wallets that are based on QR code payments, and which customers and merchants can use very conveniently”.

It is worthy to note that QNB continues to lead the digital banking and payment field through its latest digital solutions and innovative products tailored to suit the changing needs of customers with the highest and most advanced levels of services, where it was the first bank to introduce a broad range of smart payment options to its customers.
