  • Key Highlights
    • The Saudi Arabian Monetary Agency (Sama) has taken a number of initiatives to encourage electronic payments, including establishing a new electronic payment system, mada, and mandatory wage payments into bank accounts. It launched a modified Saudi Payment Network (Span) as mada in September 2015. Span links all ATMs and point-of-sale (POS) terminals across the country to a central payment switch, and the regulator expects the new system to increase the use of POS terminals. To encourage the use of the POS terminals, the daily purchase limit per card was increased from US$5,333.3 (SAR20,000) to US$16,000 (SAR60,000). Moreover, mada card users are provided with a value-added service, Purchase with Cashback, through which cardholders can request that merchants add extra amounts to purchase prices and receive the amounts in cash. Consumers can withdraw a maximum of US$106.7 (SAR400) per day on each card at merchant stores using this facility.

  • The emergence of digital only banks is likely to further encourage a shift towards electronic payments in Saudi Arabia. Gulf International Bank launched the first digital-only bank, Meem, in Saudi Arabia in January 2015. Meem offers online and mobile banking only, with no physical branches. At present, Meem only targets retail banking customers.
