Emirates Islamic Bank, a leading innovator in delivering Shari’a-compliant financial products and services, announced today it has enhanced its online facilities for paying balances on most Etisalat accounts.
Customers will be able to pay – in real time – their fixed-line telephone, GSM, Internet dial-up and Wasel renewal balances, as well as recharge their Wasel accounts, through the bank’s secure website. In addition to that the bank has worked out an incentive where those who use this value-added online payment service to recharge their Wasel accounts will receive an extra 10% credit, i.e., a Dh. 50 recharge will show as a Dh. 55 recharge.
“Providing the industry’s best, most convenient services to our customers is part of our commitment to innovation, customer service and Shari’a compliance that embodies our ‘Banking in Three Dimensions’ platform,” said Abdulelah Al Kindy, Emirates Islamic Bank Senior Vice President, Head of Retail Banking.
“The needs and requirements of our customers are constantly changing, and Emirates Islamic Bank is always looking to deliver convenience to its retail and corporate customers. We are pleased to be able to deliver this online enhancement that recognizes the value to our account holders of time-saving, real-time, online bill-paying services,” he added.
Bank customers who already have registered for Emirates Islamic Bank’s online banking service, Banknet, can use the new facility immediately, while other customers can sign up either through the bank’s website or during a simple visit to any bank branch.
Payment also will be available for other Etisalat services, such as Al Shamil DSL, in the coming months as Etisalat implements its next phase of online payment options.
