Monday 10 August 2020 11:24 CET | News

Iraq-based electronic payment solution Qi Card has announced enabling consumers to personalise the appearance of their prepaid Mastercard with Ekhtiyari Card.

According to the press release, Ekhtiyari Card offers the same safety and security features of Mastercard Qi Card, including 3DS. Therefore, Ekhtiyari’s features include:

  • Consumers holding the new Ekhtiyari card may refill cards from any of the 17,000 point-of-sale kiosks available throughout the country, or at their nearest bank branch.

  • Money transfers may be executed with Qi Card's in-app money transfer service.

  • Ekhtiyari cardholders enjoy the same secure purchasing power from thousands of vendors both online and in-store.

Moreover, to customise the new Ekhtiyari Card, consumers will be prompted to upload a preferred photo to their portal or select a stock photo from the Ekhtiyari photo gallery. Consumers will then follow the same process established for securing a Mastercard Qi Card. 

Qi Card is an electronic payment solution and employs biometric identity as the cardholder verification method. To date, ISC has an ecosystem of 17,000 POS and more than 6,000 merchants using the Qi scheme to provide instant merchant funded instalment and other commercial activities. ISC issues and acquires payment cards on behalf of fourteen affiliated banks in Iraq.
