Nomo, the world’s first fully digital Sharia-compliant cross-border bank, has teamed up with leading global issuer-processor Paymentology to build a cutting-edge and seamless customer payment experience.

Nomo offers Middle East customers a wide range of global banking services, including current accounts, property finance, international transfers, and more through its iOS and Android apps. The service also allows users to track spending, make fast payments, and manage their finances more effectively.

Nomo has already benefited from Paymentology’s cloud-based technology by introducing multi-currency accounts offering six currencies – GBP, USD, EUR, KWD, AED, and SAR. The service helps customers avoid exchange fees and provides fast, safe cross-border payments.

Now, as part of the official Nomo / Paymentology partnership, the digital bank will benefit from faster processing times, best-in-class fraud protection, and Mastercard virtual cards. Meanwhile, Paymentology will deliver a real-time data feed, providing granular insights to help Nomo improve its platform.

Martin Heraghty, Regional Director Europe of Paymentology, spoke positively about the collaboration: “As the demand for Sharia-compliant digital products and services continues to grow, Nomo is at the forefront of delivering solutions that cater to the needs of Islamic customers and beyond. With our innovative payment technology, Nomo is paving the way toward a seamless, customer-centric digital banking future. We look forward to launching more ground-breaking services together”.
