Magnati, a leading payments solutions provider in the Middle East region, has partnered with Al Etihad Payments (AEP), a subsidiary of the Central Bank of the UAE, to power the acceptance of the newly launched Jaywan card on the payment terminals offered by Magnati to its merchants.

According to Industry sources, Jaywan is the UAE’s new national card scheme, designed to offer a convenient, secure, and efficient payment solution tailored for the country’s residents. This initiative, fully powered by the Central Bank of the UAE, aims to enhance efficiency and financial inclusion, as well as national sovereignty and control over the nation’s card payment infrastructure. Jaywan cards will soon be issued to UAE residents by licensed banks and financial institutions.
