In collaboration with noon and Visa, our goal is to provide a seamless and secure payments solution, that empowers our customers whenever they choose to shop online. We are therefore proud to launch this product, which offers highly competitive benefits and a superior user experience powered by digital-first innovation.

We’re proud to work with Mashreq and Visa to create an even more seamless and enjoyable shopping experience for our customers.”

Shahebaz Khan, Visa’s General Manager for the UAE, said: “Findings from a consumer study[1] we recently published with Dubai Economy and Dubai Police showed that almost half of consumers in the UAE have been shopping online more since the COVID-19 outbreak, and 61% are using cards or digital wallets to make payments online instead of opting for cash on delivery. Considering these trends, we are excited to join our longstanding partners, Mashreq and noon, in bringing this first of its kind eCommerce credit card to the UAE. For us at Visa, the launch of the Mashreq noon VIP Visa Credit Card is an important step in transforming the online shopping experience for our cardholders and supporting the growth of the UAE’s eCommerce sector.”
