Ahli Bank Introduces Jordan’s First Social Payment App

Jordan Ahli Bank proudly announces the launch of Qawn, Jordan’s first-of-its-kind social payment app, revolutionizing the way users send and receive money through built-in chat capabilities.

One key feature of the Qawn app is its integration with CliQ, a local payment switch in Jordan, enabling businesses to accept payments at a reduced cost. The app also empowers Jordanians to open a bank account remotely without the need to visit a branch, with a streamlined onboarding process that takes only five minutes to complete.

Qawn runs on Vault Core, the cloud-native core banking platform built by the banking technology company Thought Machine. Vault Core’s Universal Product Engine allows financial institutions to build and launch any financial product to meet customers’ specific needs, as Jordan Ahli Bank has delivered with Qawn. Vault Core operates in real time and integrates seamlessly with other best-in-breed technology platforms through APIs.

Nidal Khalifeh, Chief Innovation Officer at Jordan Ahli Bank, elaborated on Qawn’s vision:

“Our aim is to help people prosper by creating a social financial experience that addresses real-life problems with cutting-edge technology. Money is inherently social, and we want to reinvent digital money with a social aspect. Our app is designed to be secure, user-friendly, and to offer guidance with a focus on technology.”

Qawn’s user-centric approach allows individuals to send and receive money, request payments through chat, or use QR (Quick Response) scan for hassle-free financial management. With support for both Arabic and English languages, Qawn is accessible to a diverse user base.

Qawn also caters to businesses of all sizes, offering seamless integration with CliQ to accept payments and manage finances effectively. Business users can easily download the app on any device and complete the onboarding process in a matter of minutes.
