AMMAN — Over 192,200 transactions worth JD17.6 million have been paid through the eFAWATEERcom service since its launch last year and until the end of February, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported, citing Central Bank of Jordan (CBJ) figures. 

In February alone, 96,600 transactions were processed compared to 11,000 in the same month in 2015, Petra reported, adding that the transactions were mostly for the telecom sector, government institutions and basic services. 

The Social Security Corporation (SSC) said in a statement on Monday that monthly subscriptions can now be paid through eFAWATEERcom for establishments and individuals.

Facilities or individuals can use the service to pay in advance, the statement said, adding that the service was available before but payment was only possible when the subscription fee was due. 

In December 2015, 5,000 SSC monthly subscription payments worth JD2.6 million were paid via eFAWATEERcom, the statement said.

Subscribers who have accounts in local banks can access and use the eFAWATEERcom service to pay their dues, the SSC said.

Several public and private entities are linked to eFAWATEERcom, which enables Jordanians to inquire about and pay their bills online.

In December last year, the ministries of interior, municipal affairs and trade, as well as the Royal Medical Services and the Jordanian Businessmen Association, signed agreements with the CBJ to offer services through the online platform.

Last February, the CBJ certified the local company Madfoo3atCom for Electronic Payments to launch the eFAWATEERcom service, which has been providing some 178 e-payment services for 47 private and public entities since its launch, according to the CBJ.


eFAWATEERcom facilitates payment procedures, saves users’ time and allows them further flexibility in using various inquiry and payment channels, CBJ Governor Ziad Fariz said in previous remarks, underscoring the system’s safety and transparency due to its “instant” transactions.
