Emirates Islamic customers will be able to access UAE government payment gateway Noqodi
UAE bank Emirates Islamic has enabled its customers to pay for government services direct from their bank accounts through integration with the Noqodi payment gateway,
Emirates Islamic customers will be able to top up Noqodi wallets and make eVoucher payments through various channels such as the bank's smartBUSINESS platform, mobile app and online banking, and ATM machines.
Noqodi enables payments for a number of government agencies including Dubai Land Department, General Directorate of Residency and Foreign Affairs, Fujairah Municipality and more.
The integration with Noqodi was carried out by systems integrator Emaratech.
Salah Mohammed Amin, CEO of Emirates Islamic, said: "As one of the leading Islamic financial institutions in the UAE, Emirates Islamic is a keen supporter of Dubai's vision of transitioning to digital payment methods, as it seeks to become a smart city.
"We are confident that our new partnership with Noqodi payment gateway will bring greater convenience and ease of use to our customers, and we look forward to greater collaboration and new joint initiatives in the near future to further enhance our services."
Thani Alzaffin, General Director & Board member of Emaratech, added: "While the Dubai government is going smart in digitalising payment methods, Noqodi has partnered with Emirates Islamic to support the UAE strategy moving towards a cashless economy.
"Noqodi is building strategic partnerships with major banks in UAE such as Emirates Islamic to strengthen its payment channels and help clients from both government and private sectors in their digitisation initiatives. Noqodi plays a vital role in the services ecosystem from a financial perspective; hence, we are investing in both payment processes and technology to come up with innovative payment methods for our customers."
