The figures indicate that more and more people are shifting their attention towards e-payment in the country, in lieu of conventional cash payment.

The increasing tendency reflects further awareness of the use of e-payment solutions. It also indicates that users feel that e-payment solutions are safe, and they are less worried that such solutions could lead to the disclosure of their data, said the statement.

In the statement, Amjad Al Sadeq, chief executive officer of Network International Jordan, applauded these results, saying they indicate that “more Jordanians as well as non-Jordanian residents and visitors are opting for e-payment solutions”. 

This will prompt Network International Jordan to work further to boost and facilitate its e-payment solutions, he noted.
