Online cash payment provider Ukash is partnering with Numny, an electronic payment provider, to expand options for consumers in Saudi Arabia.

Numny provides digital product distribution throughout Saudi Arabia, and will distribute London-based Ukash's vouchers through 150 Panda retail chain locations.

Consumers in Saudi Arabia can purchase the vouchers with cash, then use the 19-digit codes on the vouchers to pay for products directly on thousands of websites that accept Ukash transactions, Ukash stated in an Aug. 11 press release. Consumers can also load the Ukash vouchers onto prepaid cards or digital wallets, the company said.

Numny's e-commerce platform supports hundreds of instant online delivery services, such as telecommunications charge cards, international top-ups and gaming cards.

"Numny is an exciting new player in Saudi Arabia, making it the ideal partner to enhance our presence in the Middle East," James Allum, chief commercial officer at Ukash, said in the release. 

In June, Ukash entered a similar partnership in Australia through the Touch network.

Earlier this year, Ukash also partnered with PayUp, which offers electronic services through terminals in retail stores throughout Poland.

The U.K. Financial Conduct Authority regulates Ukash, which has more than 460,000 voucher purchase locations worldwide in more than 50 countries and six continents, the company said.
