Commercial Bank, Qatar’s first private bank, has launched Qatar’s first QR code online payment in Qatar. Commercial Bank customers can now purchase tickets online for the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters golf tournament using Internet and Mobile Banking platforms. This service is also available for non-Commercial Bank customers to purchase tickets online by visiting tournament’s website

After purchasing their tickets online, QR code based tickets will be sent to the customer’s registered e-mail address and mobile number. At the event entrance, customers will have their QR code tickets scanned and validated quickly, eliminating the need carry paper-based tickets to or wait in long queues, providing a better customer experience.

Commercial Bank CEO Joseph Abraham said: “QR code online payments are a key initiative for the Bank and are in line with our strategy of investing in technology to provide the best customer experience for our clients. We have upgraded our Retail Internet Banking platform and Mobile Banking app to support this innovative feature and we believe that the simplicity of this technology will allow us to enable digital payments for an array of other untapped categories of merchant payments and herald a shift in the adoption of electronic payments in the country. Commercial Bank is proud to introduce another ‘first to market’ technology to Qatar and we plan to expand this service in the future with our strategic partners.”
