Bank will offer Egyptian merchants Network International’s state-of-the-art N-Genius™ payment platform


Cairo, Egypt- 2 February, 2021: In support of the Central Bank of Egypt’s accelerated drive towards a cashless economy following the COVID-19 pandemic, Arab African International Bank (AAIB), Egypt’s leading financial institution and merchant acquirer, has announced that it will offer Egyptian merchants, the state-of-the-art N-Genius™ acceptance platform to support their payment needs.

The announcement follows AAIB’s agreement with Network International, the leading enabler of digital commerce in the Middle East and Africa and developer of the Android-based N-Genius™ payment platform. Through N-Genius™, AAIB’s merchant clients in Egypt will be able to accept payments via all major credit cards including ‘Meeza,’ Egypt’s national debit card, and contactless mobile wallets such as Apple Pay or Samsung Pay.
