ANB cardholders can use the fast, secure and flexible Atheer service that allows them to pay for their POS purchases thru the NFC feature simply by waving the card in front of the POS terminal. Cardholders may be prompted to enter their PIN occasionally for extra security.
Cardholders of ANB cards that are Atheer-enabled can benefit from the service subject to the following rules:
- Cardholder is not required to enter their PIN for purchase transactions done through Atheer for amounts up to SR 300.
- When total cumulative amount of Atheer transactions exceeds SR 300, the cardholder will be prompted to insert the card & enter his PIN. This is required for extra security and to reset Atheer values for service reuse.
