axiom has become the first mobile phone retailer in the Middle East to offer an innovative credit card on delivery payment option.
The region’s largest mobility retailer and distributor, axiom, has partnered with the UAE’s leading financial institution, Mashreq, to provide a simple, convenient, secure and cost-effective mobile point-of-service (POS) solution.
Customers in Dubai and Sharjah can now select the card on delivery option via www.axiomtelecom.com, and a representative will call confirming the order, location and time of delivery. axiom expects the payment option to prove particularly popular in conjunction with axiom’s unique two-hour online delivery service in the UAE.
Once the product is delivered, customers simply insert their Master Card or Visa credit cards into a Mashreq Payport device, and enter their pin or sign on the axiom courier’s smartphone. The customer then receives a receipt via email.
There are no extra charges, minimum purchase thresholds or requirements to enter sensitive information online. Additional customer benefits include zero percent easy-installment plans from leading banks.
The solution is secure and compliant with industry security standards, with all mobile POS machine transactions fully encrypted.
“axiom has a long history of innovating new approaches to customer service, so we are delighted to become the first mobile retailer in the region to offer this much in-demand payment system,” said Faisal Al Bannai, CEO, axiom.
axiom is planning to expand the payment in deliver system across the UAE in the coming months.
Nimish Dwivedi, Head of Payments, Mashreq said: “At Mashreq, innovation constitutes a big focus in our operations. We are proud of our association with axiom for this unique payment solution, which further underlines our leading position in this domain. Payport is designed to add value to businesses and ensure customer convenience is achieved.”
