By Delisha Fernandes
Mastercard has launched Click to Pay (C2P) in Kuwait in collaboration with One Global, a digital transformation and innovation company, under its Payment Service Provider (PSP) license.
Mastercard’s Click to Pay sets a new standard for guest checkout transactions. It delivers a more consistent experience for consumers by making it easy, secure, and fast to check out without the need to enter their card credentials or store this sensitive information with different merchants.
“Mastercard is committed to offering consumers a wide range of payment technologies. Building on our relationship, we are delighted to join forces with One Global to deploy Click to Pay in Kuwait and beyond as we continue to offer seamless and frictionless payment experiences across the markets we serve,” said Erdem Çakar, Country Manager, Kuwait and Qatar, Mastercard.
One Global has enabled Click to Pay for the purchase of digital gift cards and gaming vouchers, such as Amazon, Apple Cards, PlayStation, and Nintendo, as well as bill payments on one of their vertical markets, called Og Money.
The mobile financial service platform provides gaming vouchers, entertainment cards, bill payments, top-ups, utilities, travel, and other digital services. One Global will soon expand the service into other countries and support more use cases with broader adoption across their platform.
“At One Global, we constantly seek ways to enhance our holistic digital financial services. The launch of C2P on Og Money in Kuwait offers an ideal opportunity to streamline the online checkout experience for our customers. With a global payments technology expert like Mastercard as our partner, we are well-positioned to meet fast-evolving consumer demands,” said Mohammed Al Rashidi, Founder and Executive Chairman of One Global.
Mastercard started its collaboration with One Global in 2007 with several different projects. The most recent partnership in 2022 aimed to provide tailored financial solutions that enable the issuance of digital mobile wallets in the Middle East and North Africa.
