Mashreq has announced the launch of ‘Mashreq Payport’, the region’s first fully EMV Chip & PIN compliant mobile POS solution.
For businesses that are dependent on cash to facilitate home deliveries or other similar business segments, Mashreq Payport provides a convenient, secure and cost-effective solution.

With Mashreq Payport, any standard smart phone can be converted into a fully-fledged payment acceptance terminal. To enable this convenience for the UAE market, Mashreq has partnered with MasterCard and with Swiff.

A press conference was held to launch the new payment solution, which was attended by the senior management of Mashreq, MasterCard and Swiff.

Farhad Irani, Head of Retail Banking Group, Mashreq, commented, "We continue to live up to the promise we have made to our customers, to enrich all their experiences with us through innovation. We believe in harnessing the power of technology to create customer-centric solutions. Mashreq Payport is another relevant innovation along with other recent innovations in Retail Banking."

Jerome Cle, CEO and Founder of SCCP Group, said, "We are proud that such an outstanding bank as Mashreq partners with Swiff to launch one of the first Chip and PIN solutions in the Middle East. We are confident that with our mPOS solutions, Mashreq will increase the acceptance and visibility of mPOS in the UAE, which will bring great benefit to merchants and end-customers. This partnership rewards both our technology based upon unique security standards and our strategy to promote mPOS to the Middle East."
