Having completed the necessary requirements to go international with its card payment service, United has now started giving acquiring service for MasterCard holders.

The MasterCard acquiring service is channeled through the 70 ATMs and 100 POS terminals United has deployed across the nation. This move will definitely be another alternative for tourists, business travelers and the Ethiopian Diaspora who are on the move throughout the nation. Apart from adding value to our customers, the MasterCard acquiring service by United Bank will be a positive factor to optimize the foreign currency earning by the nation in general and by commercial banks in particular.

United is also in the process to start the acquiring service with other international card service providers in the likes of VISA.
