i2c, Qatar, KARTY i2c Inc., a provider of digital payment and banking technology, announced its partnership with KARTY, a Qatar-based FinTech providing tailored digital financial solutions to the MEA region, to launch a digital-first prepaid mobile wallet to the country.

Leveraging i2c’s global payments platform, Karty’s mobile wallet will provide Visa-branded digital cards, enabling instant, cashless P2P transactions on the Visa network. The mobile wallet will also feature data-backed financial management tools to empower users to master budgeting while gaining transparency into their spending habits across a range of categories (groceries, transportation, health care, and more). KARTY is set to be regulated by Qatar Central Bank Sandbox, once fully operational.

“We are proud to partner with KARTY as they work to enable digital-first payments in Qatar, while also providing added transparency and insights into their cardholder’s spending behaviors,” said Aurangzaib Khan, General Manager – MEA Region of i2c. “We look forward to partnering with this notable startup as they expand financial access through the region.”

“i2c’s best-in-class payments platform allowed us to design an intuitive mobile wallet that works to simplify both budgeting and spending for residents in Qatar,” said Mohammed Suleiman, Co-Founder of KARTY. “We chose i2c as our issuer processing partner because of their global reputation for unparalleled reliability, best-in-class security, and deep experience within the payments industry – all of which is especially important to us as a startup. We’re excited to bring our customers the modern payment solutions they want, all on a single platform through this partnership.”

In addition to the QFTH and QSTP, KARTY is backed by the Research Development Innovation Sector of Qatar Foundation, Qatar Financial Centre and Qatar Development Bank.
