An ePayment Gateway is thriving in Oman thanks to a robust IT infrastructure.
The Information Technology Authority (ITA), which is responsible for the development and implementation of the IT infrastructure in Oman, previously launched an ePayment Gateway.
This enables Government, the private sector and citizens to make secure electronic transactions and simplify payment procedures.
Since its launch 41 Government entities and 36 private entities have utilised the services of the ePayment Gateway.
By the end of last year, the number of transactions carried out through the ePayment gateway was 1,098,935 and their value reached 207,286,634 OMR.
To enhance the gateway scheme non-profit organisations have been added as beneficiaries.
ITA has completed most of the infrastructure projects that facilitate the development and delivery of electronic services by Government entities.
This has occurred following the declaration by His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said Al Said that Government eTransformation is a necessity in the modern age.
His Majesty said eServices are the most direct and fastest way of communication between the Government and citizens.
