Aiming to provide its customers with the most rewarding, seamless and secure payment experiences, National Bank of Kuwait (NBK) said 86% of its points of sale (POS) network is currently NFC-enabled as it seeks to increase the NFC technology penetration to 95% in 2020, thus offering Kuwait’s largest NFC-capable POS network.
The near-field communication (NFC) technology enables customers to make contactless payment at ATMs and POS terminals.
On this occasion, Hisham Al-Nusif, Deputy General Manager of Consumer Banking Group, National Bank of Kuwait, said, “We continuously seek to fulfill the needs of our customers by introducing the most innovative and top-notch banking services that comply to the highest global standards, and that are in line with our digital transformation strategy and supported by our leadership as a provider of advanced digital banking solutions locally and regionally.”
“We are committed to providing our customers with easy-to-use and disruptive payment solutions; that’s why we seek more penetration of the NFC-enabled devices as they provide faster and more secure payment options,” Al Nusif added.
NBK is constantly introducing enhancements and new solutions that aim to enrich the banking experience of our customers and where they can learn about new digital payment services that complement their lifestyle, Al Nusif confirmed.
