For the first time in Kuwait, Boubyan Bank introduces UTap on all cards (Debit Cards, Credit Cards, and Prepaid Cards).
Now you can simply tap your card on the POS to pay for your purchases, or on the UTap sign on Boubyan ATMs to process any transactions instead of inserting your card in the machine. Using NFC technology, your UTap card can communicate remotely with the POS or ATM to allow you to process your transaction securely and conveniently.
