You’ll be happy to know that ePayment options for government services will be more convenient than ever. The latest addition: paying by eWallet. A new online payment method for government eServices.

The eWallet payment option was developed by the Information & eGovernment Authority (iGA) in collaboration with Benefit and CrediMax Companies as part of iGA’s strategy to offer comprehensive digital government solutions.

The new payment channel is currently available for approximately 20 eServices via the National Portal, bahrain.bh. Notable among these are payments for traffic violations, ID card services, University of Bahrain book purchasing, and school student report card services. It will be made available for other services on the National Portal and in Mobile Apps in the near future

Paying by eWallet offers several advantages to users. Most notably its faster than payment methods that rely on cards. Which require inserting card numbers with every transaction. Users can also review their previous transactions via the eWallet application’s log.

Users should have an active wallet account on either BenefitPay or MaxWallet applications to be able to use it as a payment option. To pay using an eWallet, follow the steps for the desired service until reaching the payment page, where regular payment options such as debit and credit cards will appear. The eWallet will be available as a third option. When choosing to pay by eWallet, users must choose either BenefitPay or MaxWallet, depending on the app on their smartphones, where they will see the QR Code. Users must choose ‘Scan Code’ then ‘Agree’ to complete the payment process when using smartphones. When using other smart devices, scan the QR Code using the camera, which will open the payment app. Then, press ‘Agree’ to complete the transaction.
