    Economic affairs specialists criticized the lack of infrastructure for electronic payment services in many departments and institutions, and confirmed that most citizens still prefer cash transactions over electronic transactions.

But the quality of the system in financial transactions between customers and the lack of difficulty, whether at the level of individuals or companies, give these advantages value for dealing according to the automation system.
    Al-Sayegh pointed out that most institutions and companies currently deal according to the electronic payment system, and even malls and stores with limited capital deal according to this system for the purpose of financial facilities and raising performance, adding that there are some obstacles, including the lack of infrastructure in many departments and stations for this service, stressing. There is a need to prepare these systems by the Ministry of Finance and the Central Bank, as the country was late in introducing this service, which has been used in most countries for decades, especially the card service through mobile phones.
    He noted the necessity of disseminating payment points (POS) in their modern form to obtain the best service in multiple places, and obligating all departments, institutions, and
    shops to use them to benefit everyone.
