VIVA Bahrain has a new groundbreaking application: Viva Cash, an app that will offer consumers the very latest secure and convenient digital mobile wallet for everyday payments.
The announcement was made by CEO Ulaiyan Al Wetaid at an exclusive event attended by Transportation and Telecommunications Minister Engineer Kamal bin Ahmed Mohammed, Central Bank of Bahrain (CBB) Governor Rasheed Mohammed Al Maraj, Sadad Chairman Shaikh Ali Bin Abdulla Al Khalifa, and Viva management.
Al Wetaid said: “With Bahrain leading the digital transformation in the region, and establishing itself on the global map as a regional Fintech hub, we at VIVA Bahrain have made bringing Bahrain’s digital vision to reality a priority. And today, in keeping with our promise to support Bahrain’s digital future, we are excited to launch our latest mobile payment solution, Viva Cash, in collaboration with Sadad Bahrain, the kingdom’s FinTech leader, licensed and regulated by the Central Bank of Bahrain.”
Users can download the app for free on the Apple Store and Google Play store. Once downloaded, users of VIVA Cash can enjoy shopping and dining at over 800 merchants across Bahrain and access an international remittance service embedded within the application that guarantees fast safe and easy money transfers. Zero remittance fees are offered for India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka and the Philippines for a limited time.
Oh, and VIVA Cash makes it much more convenient and easy for you to use, how? Users can deposit their money into their account either by securely transferring money from an existing debit card through the application or by topping up with cash at any of Sadad’s 750 machines around Bahrain.
That’s not all yet! To celebrate the launch of VIVA Cash, every deposit made by customers will be matched with 10 percent more from VIVA for a limited period, giving users the chance to earn up to BD3 extra credit in their account.
