Enabling commerce in the world’s most under-penetrated payments market

Network International is the leading enabler of digital commerce across the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region, the world’s most underpenetrated payments markets. We are the only pan-regional provider of digital payments solutions at scale with presence across the entire payments value chain.

Over the past 20 years, we have built long-standing and trusted relationships with many of the leading merchants, financial institutions and card issuers operating in the MEA region through in-depth industry knowledge and local expertise, ongoing product innovation, and high-quality, reliable service. This gives us unrivalled scale and leadership in the region.

We provide a full suite of technology-enabled payments solutions to merchants and financial institutions, including acquiring and processing services and a comprehensive range of value-added services. Our products and services are delivered through our integrated omni-channel technology platforms (Network One and Network Lite), as well as N-Genius, our proprietary state-of-the-art payments operating platform.

In 2018, we processed approximately $40 billion in total processed volumes (TPV) for more than 65,000 merchants and processed 681 million issuer transactions on more than 13 million cards for over 220 financial institutions.

Our two business segments are the Middle East and Africa:

  • Middle East: Our largest segment by revenue is the Middle East, which serves customers across six countries and represents 75% of our total revenue in 2018. Key markets in the Middle East include the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Jordan, with Saudi Arabia offering significant opportunities
  • Africa: The Africa segment provides services in more than 40 countries and represented 25% of the Group’s total revenue in 2018. Key markets in Africa include Egypt, Nigeria and South Africa

Our management team, which includes executives with regional and international experience, has been instrumental in developing Network International into a regional leader in digital payments.
