PayTabs and MBME Pay collaborate to launch the Govera bill payment application

MBME Pay, the UAE’s leading payment and government services platform, has partnered with PayTabs, MENA’s award-winning B2B payments solutions provider to launch Govera – a flexible and user-friendly bill payment application.

The super-smart multi-biller, multi-currency, and multi-language mobile application is equipped with a wide spectrum of features and functionalities which enable UAE residents to pay all their bills, tolls, and fares easily and securely.

In-line with UAE Government-mandated mobility restrictions to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, Govera ensures accessibility and convenience, easing the burden on consumers who are sensibly self-distancing at home. Govera aims to add convenience to millions of subscribers and reduce the time they spend outside of their homes during this period.

With a few simple taps and clicks, the all-in-one bill payment application will let subscribers pay everything from utility and telecom bills to Salik toll fares and even request iTunes vouchers to wipe away boredom.

According to World Pay’s Global Payment Report, fraud ranks top of UAE consumers’ payment application concerns. In a country where internet penetration is 96%, Govera is a secure and seamless payment experience designed to optimise digital transactions.

Commenting on the launch, Abdelhadi Mohamed, CEO of MBME Pay, said: “We believe in making people’s lives easier and providing them with all the convenient ways possible for that, especially during the difficult time we are all going through. We thought of something to help our loyal customers to make all their payments from the comfort of their homes. Our partnership with Paytabs enabled the development of GOVERA, the application we have all been waiting for - the latest, fastest, and easiest payment platform in the region, just one tap away.”

PayTabs CEO and founder, Abdulaziz Al Jouf, added: “They say in business, timing is everything. We are delighted to announce this partnership between our two powerful brands to ensure safety and create convenience for millions of individuals, subscribers, and bill payment app users in the UAE at the right time. Govera is poised to become the Middle East’s favorite bill payment application and we welcome you to add your school, restaurant, or business to the app to capitalize on and approach millions of users.”
