Service stations of Emirates General Petroleum Corporation (Emarat) in Dubai, Emirates National Oil Company (Enoc) and Emirates Petroleum Products Company (Eppco) will start accepting Visa and MasterCard credit/debit cards for all transactions including fuel sales from Sunday, it was announced here on Saturday.
“While a service fee of Dh2 will be applicable for fuel sale transactions using the cards, all other credit/debit card purchases at the convenience stores and other services will not incur additional charges,” the oil retailing companies said in a joint statement.
Fuel distribution companies in the UAE stopped accepting credit/debit cards for fuel transactions in 2007.
“The resumption of the facility aims to enhance customer convenience while addressing the operational costs involved in providing credit/debit card payment facility,” the statement added.
As reported in the Gulf News.
