Digital payments major Amazon Payment Services has been granted a Retail Payment Services license by the UAE Central Bank. This marks a significant milestone for Amazon Payment Services, as the license enables it to unlock an enhanced offerings for its merchants across the country through unique products and services, directly improving the experience for their customers.

Obtaining the license reinforces Amazon Payment Services’ position as a trusted payment service provider in the UAE, where the company facilitates payment processing for hundreds of merchants including small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs).
