Mastercard and digital commerce enabler, Network International, have collaborated to roll out Mastercard Instalments in the UAE. The programme is now available across merchants in the UAE. It gives consumers the flexibility to split their purchases into instalments across Mastercard’s merchant network, online and in store.

It also allows banks, lenders, fintech companies and e-wallets to offer instalments to their customers without requiring additional merchant integration. Mastercard says that this makes it a unique proposition in the market.

Mastercard Instalments enables shoppers to digitally access instalment offers, pre-approved through their bank’s mobile banking app. Shoppers have full transparency on their bank’s policies in this regard up-front during the approval process. The partnership aims to provide a best-in-class experience for consumers. And at the same time, to create a sustainable business model for issuers and lenders. In addition, it builds on a long-standing strategic partnership between the two companies. And finally, the agreement focuses on enhancing and strengthening the payment ecosystem in the region.
