Oman Oil Marketing Company signed an agreement with Thawani Technologies introducing the e-payment application ‘Thawani’ in its service stations. With the new application customers will only need to scan the buyer’s Quick Response (QR) Code and enter the amount of payment required to complete the transfer process.
