MEPS launches eFawateerCom
The service will allow customers to pay utility, education and healthcare bills, as well as government transactions, at any of MEPS’ points-of-sale.
Middle East Payment Services (MEPS) has recently launched eFawateerCom, an electronic bill presentment and payment (EBPP) service. eFawateerCom allows end-users to conduct a number of transactions through any of MEPS' point-of-sales (POS).
Customers will be able to pay for their utilities, education and healthcare, as well as managing government transactions and taxes.
As the platform evolves, it will collate and enable visibility of bills of all kinds, and will eventually manage payments electronically through numerous banking mediums. This will include internet banking, automated teller machines (ATM), interactive voice responses (IVR), and mobile banking.
Caesar Qulajen, chairman, MEPS, said: "We are committed to fulfilling our promise of rising to our customers' expectations and meeting market needs, achieved by continuously facilitating transactions and making them simple and convenient for all.
He added: "For this reason, we sought to extend to payment card holders eFawateerCom's various benefits, which not only ensure secure, easy and around-the-clock access, but also offer complete control of when and how bills are to be paid to various collecting entities."
The first phase of deployment began at the start of June 2016 at the Al Farid Stores and Miles hypermarkets. MEPS has unveiled plans to expand the service to include 400 of its merchants with a combined total of 900 machines. Proposed facilities will include supermarkets, libraries, car rental offices, mobile stores and money exchange firms.
Owned by CBJ, eFawateerCom's operation is handled by Madfoo3atCom Company for Electronic Payments.
