PAYFORT announced today that the government of Ajman - one of the seven emirates that comprise the United Arab Emirates - now offers an e-payment option, powered by PAYFORT, for parking space payments.
The new e-payment service positions Ajman as the first government in the region to offer pay-as-you-go credit card payment for parking and other government services. Prior to the launch, drivers in Ajman paid for parking manually using coins, as has been common with many generations of motor vehicle drivers around the world.
Ajman drivers can now pay for parking easily and conveniently through the Municipality and Planning Department - Ajman's Android and iOS apps. To use the new service, drivers enter their car and credit card details into the app once and the credit card is saved as a token for future use. Parking fee payments are deducted from the user's account as and when authorized by the user. Cars registered in other emirates are also eligible to use the service when in the emirate of Ajman.
