All about mada and how it benefits online merchants

Saudi Arabia now has an advanced electronic payment network known as mada that works throughout the country and involves the use of a debit card, which can be used at ATMs, POS or point of sales as well as for online shopping! Those who have mada cards can use it to withdraw money from their bank accounts through ATMs, shop for goods and services online, and even pay utility bills. mada cards are issued by local banks in Saudi Arabia and come with the latest security features and value added services. The mada payment network connects with other major payment systems like MasterCard, American Express, GCC Net and VISA so that mada debit card holders can make cashless online transactions both locally and globally, seamlessly. Just like a regular ATM card, a mada card features a 16-digit number, CVV and expiry date.

mada is not just for consumers

The best thing about mada is that, it encourages people in Saudi Arabia to shop from local online merchants, as the latter can accept payments through this card easily. Rather, this card will be the primary mode of payment! If you are wondering how far the mada network is going to boost the growth graph for e-stores, here are some figures that will help. Currently, there are 16 local banks in Saudi Arabia that are issuing mada debit cards for use at POS, ATM as well as web stores. 29 million mada cards have been issued already and 22 million out of them work smoothly with international payment schemes like MasterCard and Visa.
