Thawani launches innovative e-payment platform for customers and merchants.

Thawani, an innovative mobile e-payment venture in Oman, launched its new payment platform at a VIP launch ceremony held on May 1 at the Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa in Muscat. The revolutionary new e-payments solution offers a safe, simple and highly secure alternative payment method to cash, credit and debit cards.

The launching ceremony was held under the patronage ofH H Sayyid Taimur bin As'ad bin Tariq al Said, Assistant Secretary General for Communications at the Scientific Research Council, and was attended by Majid al Amri, managing director of Thawani and the Thawani development team, together with invited dignitaries and guests.

Commenting on the launch of the new e-payments platform, Majid noted, "Our new Thawani app is set to revolutionise the way payments are made in Oman. Everything, from its set-up and creating an account, to using the app on a day-to-day basis has been designed around simplicity. Our aim with this app was to introduce a new alternative payment method that would not only be really simple to use but one that would always work and help people budget better while adhering to the highest standards of security, both for customers and retailers alike."

Compatible with Android and Apple iOS mobile platforms, Thawani is an easy payment solution that takes away the complexity of remembering multiple pins and passwords all the while keeping banking information completely private. In order to activate the app, a user needs to only download the app from the respective app store and create an account, entering all relevant payment information.
