Dukhan Bank Launches Its First Digital Prepaid Card

Dukhan Bank has become the first partner in Qatar of the global MasterCard program for cards, to begin issuing prepaid digital cards to its customers, as part of its continuous efforts to enhance its leadership in the Qatari market by providing seamless digital banking solutions that improve customer experience. MasterCard's global program "Digital First" for cards paves the way for a new approach in the field of payment operations that is compatible with the high growth rates of e-commerce and the spread of smart devices and meets the aspirations of consumers in terms of this type of transactions. The program aims to advance the digital payments arena by driving a transformation that keeps pace with changes in consumer choices, to provide better, faster, and easier payment experiences.

The global MasterCard program “Digital First” provides instant payment solutions and advanced banking services to customers, through a mobile application, instant issuance, and adding the card to your digital wallets to make payments and manage a wide range of benefits.

As the first authorized partner of the Digital First program in Qatar, Dukhan Bank can also issue a uniquely designed standard bank card without visible numbers on both sides, thus providing protection against theft of personal and financial data. Although this innovative card comes without numbers, its holders can still use the card in its original version to make contactless payments in stores easily, and also make e-commerce payments using the digital card whose data is stored securely within the banking services through the Dukhan Bank mobile application.

On this occasion, Mr. Talal Ahmed Al Khaja, Chief Marketing and Communications Officer at Dukhan Bank, said: “As part of our ongoing partnership with MasterCard, we are pleased to offer our customers the first prepaid digital card that gives them more convenience and security, in addition to being approved by many stores and shopping sites around the world.

For his part, Erdem Shakar, Regional Director of MasterCard in Qatar, Oman, and Kuwait, said: “We are proud to strengthen our joint cooperation with Dukhan Bank to provide customers with the latest payment card technology, and to take an additional step to improve the digital banking experience for customers in Qatar, in response to the rapid growth in the field of e-commerce and the spread of Smart devices and digital products, fulfilling consumers' desires to benefit from seamless and secure payments.

He added; We are pleased to build on our long-term partnership with Dukhan Bank to introduce this innovative solution in Qatar for the first time, and to launch together towards more pioneering initiatives and solutions that put us at the forefront among competitors in support of the digital transformation efforts in Qatar.”

It is worth noting that Dukhan Bank has recently revealed a number of digital services, including direct transfers to India and new benefits for private banking customers, in addition to the advanced D-Pay platform to enable customers to pay without contact, which includes Apple Pay, Fitbit Pay, and Garmin Pay services.

In addition, Dukhan Bank has developed its award-winning and easy-to-use mobile application, and launched the QMP service, the Qatar Payment System, as a digital wallet in line with Qatar Central Bank initiatives to encourage customers to make mobile payments.
