An added value experience is being offered as an incentive for them to benefit from the over 40 online payment services accessible through the National Portal.” iGA Acting Director of Communications and Marketing, Ms. Lulwa Sami Ebrahim said. “Online food ordering is popular among the majority of Bahraini nationals and residents, and its growth is in line with that of e-commerce in the Kingdom. It is a great example of the major impact digital transformation has had, where online purchases have become more common across all sectors,” she added.

One of our main priorities as a company is to provide a unique user experience, and this partnership will enable us to do that for iGA’s customers.” He continued: “Two winners will receive BD100 in Talabat credit every week, adding up to a total of 10 winners. They can use the credit at any of the more than 1,000 Bahrain restaurants listed on Talabat.”
