It will benefit customers by increasing the number of payment options available and provide them access to more than 48 million outlets in 200 countries.

Saudi Payments Managing Director Ziad bin Bandar Al-Yousef said, “The new partnership with Discover Global Network reflects Saudi Payments’ commitment to provide multiple payment options in the Kingdom’s digital payments sector and supports the Kingdom’s target of becoming a 70% cashless society by 2030. This will increase choice for all our stakeholders, including citizens, residents, tourists and pilgrims and make transactions smoother and easier.”

 

 

 

"Through alliances with regional payments networks such as Saudi Payments, Discover is able to continue to provide our partners with the global reach and localized solutions that they value," said Matt Sloan, Vice President of International Markets at Discover.
