Kuwait International Bank and McDonald's are to pilot Seamless' Seqr mobile payment platform in the state of Kuwait. The bank is the first financial institution in the Middle East to test the solution, which lets users pay via NFC or QR codes using their mobile phone at participating merchants.
Peter Fredell, president and CEO of Seamless, said: "We are very much looking forward to working with Kuwait International Bank to introduce Seqr in the Kuwaiti market.
"We now are in a very intense expansion of Seqr internationally and Seamless is already established in countries worldwide. That means we have the experience required for international locations.
"The launch of Seqr in the Swedish market has been very successful and we hope that our cooperation will help to simplify everyday life for many consumers in Kuwait."
