i2c has teamed up with BEYON Money, a mobile app launched by the fintech arm of Bahrain-based telecom provider Batelco, to launch a mobile payments super app in Bahrain.

The new digital wallet will facilitate retail, bill, and peer-to-peer payments for its users. It will also connect to bank accounts via open banking, offer financial insights and enable digital remittances.

This offering is backed by an open banking licence from the country’s central bank.

Leveraging i2c’s banking and payments platform, BEYON Money will develop card issuing and processing functionalities.

It will also utilise Visa’s network infrastructure, through i2c’s Fintech Fast Track certification, to introduce a digital-first debit programme to the market with the option for a physical card.

Additionally, i2c has integrated with local switch, Benefit, to help consumers pay utilities, rent, mobile, and more via their smartphone to billers across Bahrain.
