Ooredoo has today announced its Mobile Money Payroll service has seen a huge uptake in the past few months, with thousands of employers now switching to the smart payment method.

The service, which enables employers to pay their staff directly into their mobile phones mWallet via Ooredoo Mobile Money, has gained significant popularity in Qatar in just under 3 months, with a record number of over 30,000 employees and 2,000 businesses across the country due to be enrolled by the end of November.

The service promises companies a smarter way to pay employee salaries, saving businesses on banking processing fees, reducing accounting and administration costs and improving business efficiencies.

For employees, the system offers simple and understandable access to financial services such as local and international transfers for users unable to access a local bank account, as well as a secure and convenient alternative to carrying cash and access to an OMM Payroll Account and bank card that can be used at ATMs across Qatar.

The Ooredoo Mobile Money Payroll service was launched in partnership with QNB (Qatar National Bank), and is the region’s first payroll service via mobile.
