Al Ahli Bank of Kuwait (ABK) recently announced the launch of the ABK Visa Debit Card, the first in the region to have a ‘Quick Read’ design. The new design features the 16 digit card number on the side of the debit card in vertical sequence, as opposed to the traditional horizontal row sequence. The new design is designed to make it easier to do online transactions.
ABK has included an added card feature - ABK SecurePay service - which allows customers to activate their online shopping securely. ABK SecurePay service is based on Verified by Visa, which is a global solution designed to make eCommerce transactions more secure. It helps ensure that payments are made by the rightful owner of the Visa account, building consumer confidence in online shopping.
In line with this new design, ABK’s Visa debit cards will feature the latest contactless payment technology “Tap ‘n’ Go” powered by Visa payWave, Visa’s contactless payment technology that lets cardholders pay with just a wave of their card over Visa payWave-enabled card readers at the checkout counter.
ABK is keen to keep up with the latest banking innovations and technologies, in line with its ‘Simpler Banking’ strategy, which aims to facilitate its customers’ banking experience, while reinforcing three main elements - security, speed and convenience.
