When one thinks of the UAE, several images come to mind: charming souks, opulent towers, fantastic shopping, and beautiful beaches. Now, add one more image: Poynt terminals in the region’s top retail establishments.

We are proud and excited to partner with Mashreq Bank, the region’s oldest and most respected financial institution, and Waypoint Systems FZCO, the experts in enterprise retail integrations, to launch Poynt Smart Terminals in the United Arab Emirates.

Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharja and other popular areas of the UAE are international destinations, and as such, are a hub of massive tourist activity. Poynt will enable merchants to accept any a wide range of payment types including credit and gift cards, NFC such as Apple Pay, Android Pay, Samsung Pay, and QR Code based payments such as AliPay.

Even more compelling for retailers, will be their ability to seamlessly integrate the Poynt platform into their existing store architecture, customize and publish enterprise-grade apps to the Poynt App Marketplace, utilize advanced terminal and asset management tools, and leverage Poynt’s mobile form factor to accept payments anywhere in or outside of their stores.

Our CEO, Osama, sums it up, “This partnership gives retailers the flexibility they need to adapt and stay ahead of payment trends. Retailers in the UAE require mass payment acceptance, integrated loyalty, customer feedback, and analytics capabilities - Poynt gives them all of these things in one beautiful terminal.”
