Amazon Payment Services has expanded its services to Bahrain by adding the Benefit payment method to its network.

Amazon Payment Services merchants can now accept payments made through Benefit, Bahrain’s electronic network for financial transactions while continuing to get support for global payment methods.

The move allows customers to use their Benefit-enabled cards to shop online with Amazon Payment Services merchants by selecting the Benefit payment option upon checkout.

Peter George, Managing Director for Amazon Payment Services in MENA, said: “Merchants in Bahrain can now access our range of innovative payment products and services to facilitate simple, fast, and secure online payments for their customers.”

He added: “Our expansion into Bahrain represents the next milestone in our journey as Amazon Payment Services, taking the total number of countries we serve in the MENA region to nine.”

Abdulwahed AlJanahi, the Chief Executive of Benefit, said: “With this integration, users will enjoy new reliable and trusted payment methods via our electronic payment gateway using their locally issued debit cards.”
