AMMAM — Orange Jordan officially launched its mobile e-wallet service, Orange Money, during a press conference that was held on Wednesday, according to a statement of the company. 

In the presence of government officials alongside the company’s management and strategic partners, the press conference marked the launch of the financial solution, which recently acquired the e-payment licence from the Central Bank. 

The company said the service operated by Petra Mobile Payment Services Company has completed all official requirements stipulated in the Jordanian legislature.

Orange Jordan’s CEO, Thierry Marigny, said the company finalised the registration of Orange Money service last year to achieve the goals of Orange Group’s strategy for its subsidiaries in the Middle East and Africa.

He noted that the group’s commitment to develop a mobile e-payment solution has enhanced Orange Jordan’s role as a leading local provider of premium technologies that enhances customers’ lives by saving them time and effort. 

The e-wallet service will enable users to conduct financial processes anywhere and in anytime, with ease, Marigny added, according to the statement. 

Developing this solution will contribute to the development of the digital sector, financial inclusion, all economic sectors and national economy as a whole, he added. 

Orange Money’s chairman, Raslan Deiranieh, indicated that the company signed an agreement with Gate to Pay Company, which has developed the e-wallet’s software and an anti-money laundering system, issuing pre-paid VISA cards. Orange Money also signed an agreement with the Housing Bank for Trade and Finance, by which the bank will settle the Orange Money’s Services and will enable users to withdraw and deposit cash directly from the bank’s ATMs, he added. 

At the press conference, Orange Money’s general manager, Hiba Al Shareef, highlighted Orange Jordan’s efforts to expand to e-payment services and how Jordan has surpassed other countries in the region in developing payment solutions. 

She noted that the Orange Money’s e-wallets will enable users to fulfill their financial commitments via a wide range of digital solutions easily and securely, impacting all economic sectors and the society as well.
