Fawry Partners Shahid to Offer E- Payments for their New VIP Mobile Package

Fawry, an Egyptian unicorn and a leader in digital transformation and electronic payments, has announced a partnership with Shahid, MENA’s foremost and leading Video on Demand (VOD) platform, to provide digital payment options for their new VIP mobile package in Egypt.

This partnership is one of Fawry’s steps to strengthen its suite of services for customers, and it also aligns with Fawry’s pursuit of an effective series of agreements and partnerships with various entertainment streaming platforms.

Shahid, a streaming service, has made its VIP package available on smartphones in Egypt, allowing subscribers to access a vast library of entertainment content, ranging from series to movies and LIVE channels, and Shahid originals, at any time and location.

Also, users can subscribe to the VIP mobile package for $1.02 (20 EGP) via any of Fawry’s payment channels ranging from myFawry App, FawryPlus branches, and Fawry’s POS.

Commenting on the partnership, Heba El Awady, Chief Business Officer-Acceptance at Fawry, said “With the recent uptick in subscribers of digital platforms and entertainment streaming services, Fawry had to follow a strategy, where it forges a series of effective agreements and partnerships with the entertainment streaming services, which gives us a new segment of users, thus we are proud of our partnerships with Shahid, the world’s leading Arabic streaming platform. We aim to offer a unique and rich experience to their customers, with special content.”

Scott Weeman, Head of B2B & Partnership at Shahid, said “We are delighted to expand our partnership with Fawry, a leader in digital transformation and electronic payments in Egypt, with a large user base and extensive payment facilities.   We are excited about the appeal of VIP Mobile for Fawry users, as we aim to make Shahid’s premium content available to a broader segment of Egyptian consumers through easy and smooth payment methods”.
