Enable MADA Debit Cards for online payments in Saudi Arabia

Payfort is partnering with MADA under the supervision of SAMA in taking a strategic initiative to enable all MADA cards for online buyers to enjoy a convenient way to digitalize cash and increase the spending through their existing MADA cards through various KSA e-commerce merchants.
MADA is a new identity of the Saudi Payment Network (SPAN) and the advanced generation of electronic payments in Saudi Arabia. It connects all automated teller machines (ATMs) and point-of-sale (POS) terminals throughout the country to a central payment switch that in turn re-routes the financial transactions between a merchant’s bank and the card issuer bank. The system also permits regional and global acceptance through connecting with other payment systems such as GCC Net, VISA, MasterCard, and American Express to provide MADA cardholders with a wider acceptance locally and overseas.
MADA card is a debit card issued by local banks in Saudi Arabia that allows a cardholder to access funds in their accounts. And it works in the same mechanism of regular ATMS cards with newer standards of security and added-value features.
Deliver seamless customer experience on checkout
Customers will go through the same payment experience as Payforts enables MADA debit cards on their gateway as a new accepted card scheme similar to Visa, MasterCard & American Express to enjoy a seamless payment experience while completing traveler’s order and without any additional step required.
Evolve with the market
It’s easy to feel all alone if you run a MOTO business. MOTO merchants have been facing headwinds for much of the past decade. But the business model is not doomed. Rather, the travel industry is evolving to better serve the needs of customers across the country.
MOTO is an acronym for Mail Order and Telephone Order. The term applies to travel companies that accept orders by phone, mail & fax.MOTO customers often want personal services and the peace of mind that comes from speaking to a travel agent prior to buying. In fact, travelers are willing to pay more for better, more personal service, especially in the travel industry.
Paying over the phone or through fax is a form of ‘card-not-present’ transaction, which needs added layers of security. Fortunately, payment processors offer special accounts to MOTO businesses that solve these issues. These accounts allow your travel business to access a virtual terminal that can accept payments over the phone or through the mail. All transactions are routed through acquiring banks and all the details are encrypted for data protection. Acquiring banks process the payments and help you minimize the risks involved.
Travel businesses that use MOTO can easily take advantage of safe and secure virtual terminal payment processing. Specialized payment gateways help your travel business leapfrog the competition. Build trust & boost sales by offering phone, mail and fax payments through a secure and efficient channel for your travelers.
Taqseet Card is a financing tool that has been specially designed to help travelers to purchase travel services and pay back on flexible installments over the time period of their choice.
What makes the Taqseet Card so unique is the ability to obtain several finance facilities running on just one card at the same time. One of its features is the ability to settle the purchases in installments up to the settled number of months of each particular bank that issues this type of card.
