Doha Bank, one of the largest commercial banks in Qatar, has launched its ‘Doha Pay’ for Android, and IOS smartphone devices.

Doha Bank said in a statement that it has collaborated with all major platforms to offer seamless and convenient payments to customers using both IOS and Android smartphones or devices with the launching of Doha Pay.

Commenting on the launch occasion, Mr. Gudni Stiholt Adalsteinsson Acting CEO of Doha Bank stated that, ‘We are excited to launch Doha Pay for android and other similar leading Tap and Pay services. Doha Bank customers can now use their ‘Doha Pay’ android or IOS mobile digital wallets to pay, anywhere contactless payments are accepted, in apps and effortlessly on the web too.”

The customers will continue to receive all the rewards and benefits offered by Doha Bank’s cards without the need to carry physical debit or credit card plastics.

The bank said that the payments are accepted with a single tap at a wide network of Doha Bank POS terminals and also any contactless (NFC-enabled) machines across the state of Qatar or globally. These digital enablements will further support and grow the Doha Bank’s Cards customer experience.

According to the statement, “Depending on the platform being used, Digital wallets from Doha Bank can help you make safe and secure purchases using one or multiple security and privacy features depending on the payment service provider or platform, which entails industry-standard tokenization associated with a dynamic security code, authentication with Face ID, Touch ID, or device passcode, as well as a one-time unique dynamic security code.”

Earlier this month, Doha Bank started to offer Apple Pay, a cash-free smartphone payment and digital wallet service, for its customers.
