Tabby is the MENA’s leading shopping and financial services app that provides consumers across the UAE and Saudi Arabia with the flexibility to pay for their online and offline purchases either in a deferred single payment or in multiple installments.

Tabby creates financial freedom in the way people shop, earn and save by reshaping their relationship with money.

Tabby was founded in Dubai in 2019 by Hosam Arab. The company is headquartered in Riyadh, with presence in Dubai, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt and Kuwait.


Tabby's buy now, pay later (BNPL) platform provides users with the purchase of products and services and pay in installments over several months, without paying any additional fees or interest. It also assists users in managing their budgets better and enables them to buy what they need without having to pay the full value of the item in the beginning.
