Qatar-based Ahlibank has officially launched its digital wallet in the Qatari market in line with the bank’s strategy to give financial and e-payment services to all individuals and businesses.

‘Ahlipay’ will give users an advanced, secure, faster, and smarter payment experience. The newly launched digital wallet is based on the Qatar Central Bank’s initiative of Qatar mobile payments.

With a seamless online enrolment, all residents of Qatar (Ahlibank and non-Ahlibank customers) and visitors can download the app, register, and start using it immediately without the need to visit the branch making it hassle-free. The app is currently available in Arabic, English, Bangla, and Nepali and can be downloaded from the Google Play Store and Apple Store.

With Ahlipay, users can pay for purchases at merchants by scanning the QR code, make person-to-person transfers to anyone in Qatar 24/7 (by using only a mobile number) with no dependency on banking hours and holidays.

The app can also be used to make utility and mobile bill payments, top-up and recharge the phone through the app for users and others and add money to the e-wallet easily through Ahlibank ATMs, accounts or credit cards, or local non-Ahlibank debit cards.
