For easier contactless payments.
Abu Dhabi government services ecosystem, TAMM, has just announced that PayBy is now part of its payment options which should make it easier to conduct contactless payment on government services through its strategic partner First Abu Dhabi Bank (FAB). This partnership between PayBy and TAMM aims to simplify digital payment mechanisms for customers in Abu Dhabi.
This means that residents and citizens in Abu Dhabi can now use PayBy to pay for various digital government services through TAMM. Though Abu Dhabi Pay, customers will also be able to conduct different government-related transactions via multiple channels that include the TAMM portal (tamm.abudhabi), application, and POS. This should also eliminate the need for credit or debit cards, which supports the Abu Dhabi Government’s agenda in accelerating digital transformation.
“The addition of PayBy to the Abu Dhabi Pay platform is a significant step forward to achieving our main goal, which is to ensure that all government services and transactions are available to all residents and citizens, digitally, easily, and conveniently. We are achieving this through continuous cooperation and coordination with government entities and private sector organisations to implement modern digital technologies and solutions through multiple platforms. Abu Dhabi Pay provides greater convenience for everyone throughout the emirate,” said Dr. Ahmed Khaled Al Hashimi, Director of Digital Literacy Department – Abu Dhabi Digital Authority.
“The UAE’s proactive preventive measures during the pandemic, including early detection and implementing social distancing protocols, served to protect the community’s health and safety. The FAB-facilitated partnership between ADDA and PayBy is another step that offers additional value to our customers while advancing national goals of public health and financial inclusion,” said Ramana Kumar, EVP and Head of Payments and Digital Banking, PBG, FAB.
PayBy is a free app available on iOS and Android.
