Mowasalat (Karwa) passengers can now use the iPay application to pay their fares after it announced its first strategic partnership with the transportation company. Customers can now register through the iPay app to make digital payments after completing their trips.

iPay, a secure e-wallet application, is part of Vodafone Qatar’s Infinity Payment Solutions (IPS), a separate financial entity and 100% subsidiary of Vodafone.

In line with the recent announcement of the Qatar Central Bank (QCB) urging all businesses to provide consumers with access to digital payments, the partnership also aims to drive the vision towards a cashless economy by 2030.

According to Vodafone Qatar COO Diego Camberos, the partnership with Mowasalat marks a significant milestone in the development of iPay.

Through this collaboration, we can support the drive towards a fully digitized economy in Qatar and provide our customers with a hassle-free experience while making day-to-day payments.

Mowasalat (Karwa) Chief Administrative Officer Ahmed Abdulrahman J A Al-Muftah said they are pleased to announce that Karwa customers will be the first in Qatar to enjoy paying their ride fares through the iPay e-wallet. He said that the step is part of the collaboration between the two entities in many fields.

This operator-independent digital wallet is a product conceptualised in Qatar and he said they are happy to make this available to (Karwa) customers, in addition to the current (Karwa Taxi) App payment options.

We are moving towards providing improved services to our local community, by making every ride with (Karwa) a seamless, comfortable and enjoyable experience.

He added that at Mowasalat, they believe technological innovation in their services is key towards increasing the customer base and ensuring continued customer satisfaction.
