Nawras customers can now get a new smartphone or other device with zero down-payment and 0% interest, when paying with a Bank Muscat credit card. Nawras has signed a partnership agreement with Bank Muscat to give postpaid customers some great new payment options when purchasing new devices with bundles.

Ammar Al-Lawati, Nawras Senior Product Manager – Finance, said, “We are proud to be the first telecommunications company in Oman to offer this kind of instalment plan to customers and are delighted to partner with Bank Muscat for this service. This new payment method allows customers to enjoy the latest devices up-front, without compromising their lifestyles and other needs.”

Oman is the fastest growing Smartphone market in the GCC region and Bank Muscat has reported an increase in popularity for instalment plan payments, showing a clear demand for this type of innovation within the market. The partnership with Bank Muscat comes as part of the company’s 2014 plan to offer more effective segmentation of products, giving customers more value, flexibility and a better experience of the Nawras service.

Nawras customers can also benefit from a wide range of convenient payment options to pay for other services, including the online portal on the official Nawras Facebook page as well as self-service machines in Nawras stores, at petrol stations and in shopping malls. Customers are also able to use ATMs, bank counters, and cash deposit machines, as well as OIFC branches and machines, to pay their Nawras bill at the same time as paying bills for household utilities – part of Nawras’ aims to make things simpler and more convenient for their customers.

To find out more about the Bank Muscat payment options, customers can visit any one of the 29 stores located across the country, consult an authorised dealer or visit Nawras at one of their stands at the Muscat Festival.
