Cash has historically been the dominant payment method in Bahrain, followed by cards.

Of the 1.5 million issued cards, 70% are debit. All debit cards are branded with the local scheme BENEFIT, a payment method used for both online and in-store. Recently, BENEFIT added a wallet solution called BenefitPay.
