QIB Brings Apple Pay to Customers


Qatar Islamic Bank (QIB), the largest private Bank in Qatar, is pleased to announce the launch of Apple Pay to its customers. Apple Pay is transforming mobile payments with an easy, secure and private way to pay that’s fast and convenient.

With the launch of Apple Pay, QIB’s customers will be able to pay using iPhone and Apple Watch at retail stores via POS devices, and with iPhone, iPad and Mac while shopping in apps or online. Users will benefit from the security and simplicity of Face ID, which authenticates payments with the double click of the side button and a glance, and Touch ID. Security and privacy are at the core of Apple Pay. Apple Pay is accepted at all NFC enabled POS device – e.g.: grocery stores, pharmacies, hotels, restaurants, coffee shops, retail stores, and many more places. When shopping online, there’s no need to manually fill out lengthy account forms or repeatedly type in shipping and billing information with Apple Pay.

When you use a credit or debit card with Apple Pay, the actual card numbers are not stored on the device, nor on Apple servers. Instead, a unique Device Account Number is assigned, encrypted and securely stored in the Secure Element on your device. Each transaction is authorized with a one-time unique dynamic security code.

Apple Pay is easy to set up and users will continue to receive all of the rewards and benefits offered by QIB’s credit and debit cards in stores. Apple Pay works with iPhone 6 and later, iPhone SE and Apple Watch.

Apple Pay is easy to set up. On iPhone, simply open the QIB Mobile Banking app, tap ‘Add to Apple Pay’ and follow the steps to add your QIB credit or debit cards. You can add the same card to various Apple devices – to iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, or Mac and start using Apple Pay on that device right away. Customers will continue to receive all of the rewards and benefits offered by QIB’s cards.
