Mowasalat (Karwa) and the QNB Group, the largest financial institution in the Middle East and Africa, have recently collaborated to enhance the Mobile Payment service in Karwa taxis via Apple Pay and Google Pay.

The launching of Apple Pay and Google Pay, which secures payments using Touch ID or Face ID on compatible iOS and Android devices, is an important step by Mowasalat (Karwa) and QNB to promote payment through smart devices. At the moment, customers with already activated Apple and Google Pay accounts will be able to pay their taxi and limousine rides through the system, until the service is approved for local banks.

Under this partnership, Mowasalat (Karwa) is the first merchant to enable the service in Qatar, while QNB will be the Mastercard Payment Gateway Services provider, offering customers mobile payment solutions that are compatible with the best international standards.

Mowasalat (Karwa) CEO Fahad Saad Al Qahtani emphasised that customers are at the heart of their business, and this directly resonates in the implementation of their latest service.

He said that the activation of Apple Pay and Google Pay services comes as part of their ongoing efforts that started with the brand new Karwa Taxi App.

We constantly embrace more digital solutions to make our services easily and safely available for all.

In a nutshell – he said that they want to make Mowasalat (Karwa) part of everyone’s everyday life.
