Zain Iraq, the country’s largest mobile operator by customer numbers, announced the introduction of a solution that enables customers to purchase offers via their Facebook app.

The service, which is available on Android devices, and via the portal on iOS phones, was introduced by Zain Iraq in coordination with Facebook. Zain claims it is the first operator in the Middle East to provide this functionality, and among the first 10 providers to do so worldwide.

Facebook is extremely popular in Iraq, numbering over 20 million accounts. Zain Iraq counts the highest number of Facebook phone users in the country with over 5 million  followers, according to figures from the social media platform. 

Ali Al Zahid, CEO, Zain Iraq
Being the first operator in the Middle East to launch this solution gives us tremendous confidence that we are building the next positive differentiator in our market. Our business is evolving, with customers in search of simple solutions that are easy to use, and which fit neatly into their daily lives.
