Scope
- Similar to other Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries, Bahrain introduced the Wage Protection System (WPS) in the private sector, mandating private employers to pay wages electronically (bank account or prepaid card) to their employees instead of cash. As a part of the first phase, effective from May 1, 2021, companies with 500 employees and over must implement the WPS. The second phase is scheduled from September 1, 2021 for companies with 50-499 employees and the final third phase from January 1, 2022 for companies with 1-49 employees. This initiative will drive financial inclusion in the country and boost demand for banking products such as bank accounts and cards.
- The adoption of contactless technology is expected to further boost card payments growth in Bahrain. In August 2019, the Central Bank of Bahrain (CBB) issued a circular, which requires all the new cards (credit, debit and prepaid cards) issued by banks and financial institutions must support contactless payments, effective from October 12, 2019. The circular also mandated that all the new POS terminals installed from October 1, 2019, must support contactless payments. Furthermore, in September 2020, CBB passed an order for banks operating in country to replace all their all-existing payment cards with contactless cards by December 31, 2020.
- Alternative payments are gradually gaining prominence in Bahrain. In November 2020, digital payment solution ‘stc pay’ was launched in Bahrain. The wallet can be used to make both domestic and international fund transfers, as well as utility bill and in-store payments. Meanwhile, BenefitPay, a national electronic wallet payment system has added the Tap and Go payment method to its service in September 2020, allowing users to make contactless payments at POS terminals using their Android mobile phones.
