The Central Bank of Kuwait recently issued Resolution No. 45/471/2023 regulating e-payment services, which represents an important regulatory development for market players in Kuwait’s financial sector, including banks, credit card companies and e-payment service providers.
The providers of buy now, pay later (BNPL) services, which were formerly covered under the Central Bank of Kuwait’s regulatory sandbox framework as an innovative financial service, will now need to meet the new regulatory requirements set out in Resolution No. 45/471/2023 for carrying out their activities in Kuwait.
