CB Household Worker PayCard- Helping Everyone Bank Digitally

13 April 2020

Doha, Qatar: Commercial Bank, Qatar’s first private bank, has launched “CB Household Worker PayCard”, 
the country’s first digital solution offered to manage household workers’ salaries and remittance. This new service immediately follows after the launch of CB Smart Payroll for company workers payments and remittance.

“CB Household Worker PayCard” can be applied for digitally using Commercial Bank’s Mobile Banking App. The individual is able to create a PayCard account for all of his/her personal workers in the household, farm or other personal staff. Using this service, the monthly salary can be credited and also if required, remittances can be set up on behalf of the domestic worker to their beneficiaries in overseas countries using Commercial Bank’s award winning digital 60 Second Remittance solution. All without leaving home, enabling everyone to stay safe.


Like the normal CB PayCards, the Household PayCard by Commercial Bank, enables the domestic employee to withdraw cash from the ATM, make cashless payments and make transactions for themselves. Additionally, by using their own dedicated CB PayCard Mobile Banking App, more workers and household employees can benefit from the ability to control their money from their phone and send money overseas, fee free, arriving within minutes.


Joseph Abraham, Group Chief Executive Officer of Commercial Bank commented: “Digital Banking leadership has been a core strength of Commercial Bank and the launch of the CB Household Worker PayCard solution responds to the needs of the nation during this period by providing digital payment and remittance solutions for domestic workers in Qatar.  I’m pleased the CB Household Worker PayCard can contribute to wider society and play an integral role towards supporting financial inclusion and achieving the common goal of moving customers from cash to digital payments.” 


Amit Sah, EGM and Head of Retail Banking at Commercial Bank stated: “We are pleased to launch our “CB Household Worker PayCard” service and know that this will answer the needs of many of our customers and their staff at home and in farms. Being able to extend digital services to everyone in the country is something we are proud of and we have teams of dedicated staff ready to help customers adopt this service.”


Customers using the CB Mobile App will be able to apply for this card for their homeworkers and domestic staff. Here they can set up digitally for their workers regular salary payment standing orders, international remittances, and manage the control of the cards.
