    E-payments see increase in first half of 2021

    AMMAN — E-payments in Jordan increased by 35 per cent during the first half of 2021, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported on Sunday.

    The number of e-payment dealers also went up by around 50 per cent compared with the same period last year.

    In an interview with Petra, Amjad Sadeq, CEO of Network International, a leading payment solutions provider in the region, said that payments were 'very weak' due to the COVID-19 crisis and closures, but the reopening of sectors led to 'a strong' e-payment demand.

    He noted that the pandemic contributed to a change in citizens' consumer behaviour and their acceptance of e-payment services.

    Sadeq said that the drop in foreign travel rates contributed to the increase in e-payment transactions.

    The efficiency of the Kingdom's e-payment system, led by the Central Bank of Jordan (CBJ), has contributed to the availability of e-payment channels to the public and supporting public departments.
