According to the Chamber, the partnership aims to increase competition on the local market, expand the range of payment options being offered to merchants and ultimately lead to reduced costs for business owners to accept card payments.

The President of the Malta Chamber of SMEs Mr. Paul Abela, stated that it is high time for such value for money service in online and electronic payments to be made available on the Maltese market. It has become a priority of national interest to move towards a cashless society as much as possible and encouraging businesses in taking up such initiatives. 

Trust Payments Malta CEO Mr. Steven Grech said that “We are delighted to partner with the Malta Chamber of SMEs who represent over 7,000 merchants and who are the leading voice of independent private businesses. We believe our partnership will benefit the Maltese business community as well as consumers at large.”
