Qi Card to reach more than three million Mastercards® in circulation by 2021


Qi Card Density Totals More Than 5x all Other Iraqi Card Providers Combined

BAGHDAD, Sept. 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Qi Card, the leading electronic payment solution and default national debit/credit card of Iraq, today announced it anticipates reaching the milestone of issuing more than three million Mastercard Qi Cards to Iraqi and other Middle Eastern country citizens by the end of 2021. Already the largest Mastercard provider in Iraq, this anticipated adoption will further strengthen Qi Card's market-leading position.

This projection and the increase reported in Qi Card usage is a reflection of an exciting trend toward a broader acceptance of a cashless economy in Iraq. The popularity of Master Qi Card among Iraq's 39 million citizens is the latest example of progress toward financial inclusion in the country through technology and partnerships.
