A Monetary Tie-up

A new fast and secure contactless payment solution has been integrated into the stc pay app, which enables customers to shop for goods and services online across a wide range of Bahrain-based and worldwide retailers. stc Bahrain has teamed up with NEC Payments to present the stc pay virtual prepaid Mastercard. This partnership allows customers to access a broader range of merchants and conduct transactions in a faster, more efficient and safer way, which has also become a valid requirement in the current challenging times where the use of e-commerce and contactless payments is being encouraged to avoid handling of cash.

This novel digital offering empowers customers with no access to credit cards to continue shopping anytime, anywhere and have the items delivered right to their doorstep.

All users of stc’s mobile wallet can subscribe to the stc pay prepaid Mastercard at no additional fee with a validity of up to three years. They also have the flexibility to use their current account balance for online purchases.
