NBB launches new Point-Of-Sale terminals with advanced technology

9th June 2020

In line with the Bank’s ongoing efforts to continually enhance its value proposition for customers, National Bank of Bahrain (NBB) announced the launch of its advanced Android based Point-Of-Sale (POS) Terminals across the Kingdom.

Set to provide customers with a variety of value-added features and faster connectivity, NBB’s latest offering will allow customers to benefit from touch-enabled interaction and quicker receipt generation. The new POS machines will also continue to accept payment from near-field communication (NFC) enabled cards, a service that NBB pioneered in launching last year, with the machines supporting merchants by facilitating the introduction of loyalty programs, QR code-based payments and other forms of digital payment solutions in the future.

In a move aimed to further enhance the retail customers and merchants’ experience, NBB has also recently enabled existing Merchant POS machines to accept contactless transactions without PIN to up to BHD 50.

Commenting on NBB’s new POS machines Vineet Munot, Head of Transaction Banking at NBB said, “Introducing innovative cash management solutions comes as part of our Transaction Banking Strategy and by rolling out the latest and most advanced Android based Point-of-Sale terminals, NBB is emphasizing its commitment to providing best-in-class solutions to merchant and individual clients.

The new POS terminals will enable merchants to improve their customer’s shopping experience by acknowledging their spending habits and preferences, in line with the Bank’s efforts to remain closer to the needs of its customers.

NBB remains committed to introducing products and solutions that will further accelerate the Kingdom’s ambition of becoming a truly digital and cashless economy.
