Ithmaar Bank has introduced a new Sharia-compliant e-Card which aims to provide its customers with a faster, safer and more convenient online shopping experience.

With the new e-Card, customers can join Bahrain’s most rewarding loyalty programme, Ithmaar Rewards, by which they can acquire points with each transaction that they make. The e-Card also provides unique features such as real-time top-ups hrough Ithmaar Bank’s e-Banking or e-Payment platforms, as well as a daily top-up and utilisation limit of BD10,000, and a minimum top-up of only BD1.

Other features include SMS notifications for each transaction, monthly electronic statements, as well as exclusive discounts on shipping charges through Aramex and a USD5 lifetime Aramex Shop and Ship membership.

“Ithmaar Bank has long been a pioneer in recognising industry trends and offering innovative Sharia-compliant products and services that cater to the financing needs of individuals and institutions,” said Ithmaar Bank General Manager, Retail and Private Banking, Abdul Hakeem Al Mutawa. “With the rising popularity of online shopping, the new Sharia-compliant Ithmaar Prepaid e-Card is yet another milestone we are introducing to Islamic banking in Bahrain,” he said.

“Among the key features of the new e-Card is the ability to safely and conveniently deliver purchases through Aramex’s ‘Shop and Ship’ service from 15 different locations around the world to Bahrain,” he added.
