MyFatoorah gets CBUAE license

MyFatoorah, a leading payments platform across the Middle East, has acquired a license from the Central Bank of UAE (CBUAE).

The platform has become the first regional payments platform to have reached a significant industry achievement by obtaining licenses from the Central Banks of six regional countries, including from CBUAE. With the issuance of these licenses, the payments platform introduces its ‘Payments Without Borders’ concept, aimed at enabling seamless cross-border payment acceptance while enhancing trust and convenience in digital payments.

Having obtained licenses from CBUAE, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, and Qatar and approval from the Central Bank of Egypt, MyFatoorah is now positioned to offer direct merchant-acquiring services and payment aggregation solutions with reduced reliance on traditional banking channels. This strategic shift gives the company greater autonomy to enhance operational efficiency and provide exceptional service for merchants.
