HyperPay serves as a one-stop solution that aims to meet all financial requirements and interests of customers and the company plans on providing an increasingly extensive spectrum of financial services and products as part of its expansion plans, beyond payment services. The company looks to assist robust economies like Saudi Arabia in facilitating the shift towards a cashless economy and by doing so, it aims to establish the MENA region as a cashless ecosystem that addresses the requirements and interests of customers.

Muhannad Ebwini, Founder and CEO of HyperPay advised that Saudi Arabia is an important market, especially due to the growth that is seen within the fintech sector. The company is committed to expanding its services beyond payments to offer an extensive spectrum and products across the MENA region and in Saudi Arabia particularly. As per their statement, the country’s digital transformation initiative, part of the Saudi Vision 2030, brings forth the opportunity to have widespread adoption of cashless payment models achieved.

As the company’s primary objective is that of positioning the MENA region as a cashless ecosystem that meets all customers’ financial needs and interests, it is developing and expanding its product lines to address the needs of its customers across all sectors and resolve difficulties that businesses face when adopting digital payment models.
