PayMate, an India-based B2B digital payments company, has partnered with the National Bank of Oman (NBO) to digitise and automate B2B payments using Visa Business Credit Cards.

By leveraging PayMate’s advanced B2B payment automation solutions, NBO offers its corporate and SME clients the ability to utilise their Visa Business Credit Cards for making supplier payments. This eliminates the need for suppliers to have a dedicated payment system, streamlining the process by transferring funds directly into their bank accounts through the NBO Visa Business Credit Card.

Maha Saud Al Raisi, Assistant General Manager Retail Products at National Bank of Oman, said, “We are excited to empower local businesses with more flexibility and efficiency, making transactions smoother and easier for them. Our partnership with PayMate ensures a safe transaction environment, providing detailed reports, and clear cash flow visibility.”

The Visa Business Signature Card empowers clients to maximise their already existing credit limits, allowing them to make supplier payouts ahead of the due date without depleting their cash reserves. Furthermore, clients gain the flexibility to extend the time they take to settle their payables, utilising the funds for strategic business growth.

Ashwin Shenoy, Vice President & Business Head CEMEA, at PayMate, said, “We at PayMate, are excited to announce our partnership with the National Bank of Oman to offer B2B payment solutions to corporates and SMEs in the Sultanate of Oman. This partnership with NBO will enable enterprises and SMEs to improve overall working capital and efficiencies in their payables and receivables process, thereby providing better cash flow visibility.”

The partnership enhances business efficiency with detailed reports, quick reconciliation, and transparent cash flow visibility. The PayMate platform offers customisable approval processes, seamless ERP integration, and flexibility for ad hoc and bulk payments. Additionally, the link-based collections feature facilitates convenient payment collections from retailers, distributors, and suppliers, utilising corporate credit cards as a practical payment option.

Manish Gautam, Country Manager, Oman, at Visa Inc., said, “Through our partnership with PayMate and the National Bank of Oman, we aim to modernise B2B payments, making them more efficient and less time-consuming for businesses in the Sultanate. This significant move aligns with the local government’s agenda to digitise local businesses and the economy, and we believe this partnership will lead to greater financial inclusion and economic growth in Oman.”
