New study reveals top trends in online payments in MENA

Payment approval rates for travel have increased by 8.8% in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), finds a new report from Checkout.com, an international provider of online payment solutions. In the fourth quarter of 2018, the approval rate rose by 5.1% bringing MENA's rate just 3% behind the rest of the world. Due to the high transaction value in the travel industry, card approval rates have seen a slower growth rate than other industries, such as e-commerce.
