Visa and Mashreq launch digital payments acceptance tool in UAE

Wednesday 11 August 2021 13:44 CET | News

Visa and Mashreq, a card acceptance service provider based in the UAE, have partnered to debut the new Rapid Seller Onboarding programme in the UAE. 

This solution will enable digital acquisition and onboarding of SMBs by allowing them to sign up directly with the payment acquirer (Mashreq) to accept digital payments from their customers in-store/at point-of-sale or online within just seven working days. Visa is initially rolling out this solution in the UAE before expanding it to other markets in the CEMEA region.

Visa's Rapid Seller Onboarding programme is designed to eliminate the pain points that both merchants and acquirers face during the traditional onboarding process. These include lack of digital touchpoints, lengthy onboarding timelines and limited feedback mechanisms that result in high costs for both merchants and acquirers.

UAE-based SMBs can join the automated onboarding process by submitting the new merchant application form online through Visa’s Small Business Hub. If the application is approved, the merchant is notified, and the preferred acceptance channel is activated.
