On receiving regulatory approval, Citibank will transfer 900 full-time consumer banking and contract employees, eight Citibank branches and its Egyptian ATM network to CIB. According to CIB, the deal will increase its market share by 33%, adding 80,000 credit cardholders to CIB's portfolio of 240,000.

- Egypt-based electronic payments company Emerging Markets Payments (EMP) launched EMP Online Fraud Prevention Services in June 2015, to protect banks and customers from online card fraud. In April 2013, HSBC launched a fraud-prevention device called HSBC Secure Key. Payment card transaction values and volumes are anticipated to increase as banks adopt measures to combat online card fraud.

- To increase the adoption of e-payments in Egypt, MasterCard launched its Cashless Campaign in 2014. The campaign was launched in collaboration with five prominent banks: National Bank of Egypt (NBE), The United Bank, Emirates NBD, Housing and Development Bank and Commercial International Bank (CIB). Similarly, North Cairo Electricity Distribution Company and NBE signed an agreement in October 2013, to allow citizens to pay electricity bills online using Visa cards. Likewise, in September 2014, Egypt’s leading nationwide electronic bill presentment and payment (EBPP) platform, Fawry, announced the launch of new service that enables individuals to pay traffic fines directly via the Fawry network. These initiatives are anticipated to increase the share of e-payments in the country.
