Mastercard, a leading global technology company in the payments industry, has introduced its innovative Click to Pay (C2P) service in Kuwait through a strategic collaboration with the digital transformation and innovation firm, One Global™. Under its Payment Service Provider (PSP) license, One Global™ has facilitated the deployment of Click to Pay in Kuwait, revolutionizing guest checkout transactions in the region.
Click to Pay by Mastercard introduces a new benchmark for guest checkout transactions, delivering a streamlined, secure, and swift experience for consumers. This innovative service eliminates the need for users to enter their card credentials repeatedly or store sensitive information across multiple merchants. Once enrolled, customers can seamlessly complete transactions using their stored cards within their profile on any participating merchant platform.
One Global™ has effectively integrated Click to Pay into its ecosystem, enabling users to utilize the service for the purchase of digital gift cards, gaming vouchers (including popular options like Amazon, Apple Cards, PlayStation, and Nintendo), and bill payments. This enhancement is part of One Global™’s Og Money™ vertical market, a comprehensive mobile financial service platform that caters to various digital needs such as gaming vouchers, entertainment cards, bill payments, top-ups, utilities, travel, and more.
Acknowledging the significance of this partnership, Erdem Çakar, Country Manager for Kuwait and Qatar at Mastercard, emphasized, “Mastercard is committed to providing a diverse range of payment technologies to consumers. Collaborating with One Global™ to introduce Click to Pay in Kuwait and beyond aligns with our goal of offering seamless and frictionless payment experiences across the markets we serve.”
One Global™ is a prominent player in digital transformation and fintech innovation, serving 3.2 million customers worldwide. Since its inception in 2004, the company has established a robust presence across more than 20 countries, including regions in the Middle East, North Africa, Asia, Europe, and North America. Through its vertical markets, including Og Money™, Og Travel™, Og Business™, and Og Stack™, One Global™ delivers an array of Mobilized Lifestyle® services to both consumers and businesses, leveraging cloud and web hosting services.
Mohammed Al Rashidi, Founder and Executive Chairman of One Global™, expressed enthusiasm for the partnership, stating, “The launch of C2P on Og Money™ in Kuwait provides an ideal opportunity to enhance the online checkout experience for our customers. With a strategic partner like Mastercard, a global leader in payments technology, we are well-positioned to cater to the evolving demands of consumers.”
Mastercard’s collaboration with One Global™ marks a significant stride in enhancing the digital financial landscape in Kuwait, aligning with their joint commitment to seamless and secure payment experiences.
