Maktoob.com's answer to online shopping concerns

Now available throughout the Middle East, the cashU Card has been designed to eliminate the risks associated with credit card fraud when transacting online on any website in the world.

In what is considered an unprecedented development in the region's online shopping world, Maktoob.com announced the launch of an innovative payment system that guarantees safe and secure online transactions.

Now available throughout the Middle East, the cashU Card has been designed to eliminate the risks associated with credit card fraud when transacting online on any website in the world. The cards are currently being sold in three denominations-$10 (500 cashU), $20 (1000 cashU) and $30 (1500 cashU) or in local currency equivalent. They can be ordered through the cashU website (cashucard.com). The cards are then delivered at the buyer's doorstep in less than 24 hours.

"The Middle East, in particular, has witnessed a slow development in the online shopping business since concerns over credit card fraud continue to deter shoppers," explained Samih Toukan, CEO of Maktoob.com.


"The cashU Card system has been designed to address the needs of Internet shoppers and help the region move forward with the rest of the world in employing innovating Internet trends." Toukan pointed to latest statistics by Yahoo!/AC Nielsen Internet Confidence Index and several independent agencies which show that a large percentage of users, both regionally and worldwide, are hesitant to use their credit cards for online transactions due to concerns over fraud. It is precisely these concerns that the cashU card successfully addresses, he added.

Shoppers can buy products directly from the websites that accept cashU's. The required number of cashU's is then accordingly deducted from the user's card balance.


For the sites not using the cashU Card system, the customer should submit details of the product, which is bought by the cashU customer representative on behalf of the customer. This value-added service is free to the customer. The ease of use, speed and simplicity of transactions in the cashU Card system will surely appeal to a large number of Internet users in the region.
