FinTech,Social media platforms can offer insights helping FinTech and digital payments companies analyse consumer behaviour and preferences, the most critical factors in present times, as well as trends in the industry.

With the ever-evolving digital landscape, it has become imperative for financial institutions to offer services that cater to the changing needs of consumers, and channels of interaction like social media can bridge that gap.

Similarly, numerous financial technology companies utilise social media platforms to make announcements on product offerings, mergers, partnerships, and other developments to garner wider attention and to better reach their target audience.

Let’s look at the top six announcements made by the FinTech bigwigs this week: 


Fawry and Hulul are teaming up to integrate payment systems based on artificial intelligence! This strategic cooperation agreement with “Hulul” Company, supported by WideBot, the leading Arabic-focused conversational AI chatbot building platform in the MENA is to integrate Fawry electronic payment systems with “Hulul” services for digital transformation and artificial intelligence, to support the business of small and medium-sized companies.


FreedomPay and Citi Retail Services are joining forces to empower consumers with choice at the point of purchase with Citi Pay embedded digital payment products.

Our strategic collaboration leverages FreedomPay’s robust technology and Citi’s payments expertise to deliver a seamless, user-friendly experience for consumers and merchants alike. It enhances the customer journey through payment optionality and lending solutions at the point of sale.
