SADAD Launches ‘Save Your Card’ Feature in Mobile App

SADAD, the Kingdom’s most trusted payment platform, recognized as an innovator in the FinTech Industry introduces another revolutionary feature to their mobile application, the ‘Save Your Bank Cards’ feature.

The new feature is accomplished by tokenization, which is considered the safest way for storing financial card information. SADAD has recently attained the latest version of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS) certification, and with this certification, SADAD ensures that all confidential data is secure and is only shared towards payment processors with the consent of the customer.

This feature will allow customers to pay bills and make various transactions but only having to save their card details once. Aligned with the PCI-DSS compliance, SADAD’s in-house R&D and RTD team have created a secure and advanced payment platform to ensure ultimate security of customer’s card details while allowing them to automate and control their bills and maintain complete visibility. In order to ensure security measures, customers will have to enter their PIN number to make a transaction.

Credit card tokenization is used as a norm and tech-savvy customers are aware of it. In addition to that, SADAD Bahrain for the first time in the history of payments introduced the option to save debit cards.

Commenting on this new feature by SADAD, Danial Jawaid, Director of IT from SADAD Bahrain said, “As a result of our efforts to continually increase customer satisfaction, the latest addition to our app will provide customers an added value to SADAD’s current offering, as customers can now easily pay their bills in a few taps without facing the hassle of having to repeatedly re-enter their card details.”

Launched in 2010 with a network of over 850 kiosks across the Kingdom, SADAD quickly garnered a reputation as a one-stop channel favored by users due to its easy and user-friendly interface. As a result, SADAD is now integrated with the Kingdom’s top telecoms companies, as well as the Electricity & Water Authority in order to further convenience users and provide them with a practical payment method. Amongst its offerings, SADAD also facilitates the transfer of money, donations to charitable societies as well as payments for a number of tourist activities. Also offering vouchers for Google Play, EBay, Amazon, XBOX and PlayStation, SADAD provides a one stop solution for a variety of needs.

In line with user’s constant requirement for convenience, SADAD App provides users with a fast, simple way to pay bills using the cards saved to their SADAD account. Through continually improving their offerings and provide customers with more services, SADAD aims to ensure the optimal satisfaction of their users.
