Manama, Kingdom of Bahrain 24 September 2018

bwallet signed up with another partner, BMMI, a diversified retail and distribution, logistics, hospitality and contract services and supply group, to enable cashless payments at one of their leading consumer facing brands, Alosra supermarket.  

With seven stores across Bahrain and two in Saudi Arabia, Alosra supermarket is a leading high-end grocery retailer that has been a true lifestyle partner to its customers since 1987. Alosra patrons in Bahrain will soon be able to pay for their purchases without cash, with the ability to use bwallet instead. This new initiative will help provide an advanced and convenient way of purchasing. 

bwallet is the first digital wallet to provide peer-to-peer money transfer and was launched earlier this year by AFS, the region’s leading FinTech enabler, in partnership with Batelco, Bahrain’s leading digital solutions provider. Customers can simply scan a QR code for seamless merchant transactions and enjoy secure cashless payments with exclusive benefits through their mobile phones.

Group CEO of AFS, B Chandrasekhar, said, “We are delighted to partner with the BMMI Group. In the first stage, we will go live with Alosra, one of the leading supermarket chains in Bahrain to accept cashless payments via bwallet. With the growing bwallet user base, we hope more and more people will use bwallet for their transactions at Alosra and enjoy an easy check out experience.”

Batelco CMO Abderrahmane Mounir said that Batelco is extremely pleased to see a major retailer such as Alosra join the bwallet family. “We believe that having the fast, convenient and secure payment experience delivered by bwallet available to them will be a welcome convenience for Alosra’s customers.”

From the supermarket’s side, Jaffar Al Asfoor, BMMI’s General Manager of Food Retailing and Production, emphasised the importance of offering customers with options. “At Alosra, elevating the customer experience is a top priority. We are excited about the introduction of bwallet at Alosra because it provides our customers with a new and advanced way to conclude their customer journey. We’re always on the lookout for products and initiatives that can further delight our customer, and we look forward to our partnership with AFS.”
