Qatar Islamic Bank (QIB) launched the Samsung Wallet on Monday, a secure and easy-to-use mobile payment service for all QIB debit, credit and prepaid cardholders owning Samsung devices.
Zawya reported that Samsung Wallet offers a secure method for making e-payments and supports contactless payments at any store in Qatar and abroad. Instead of repeatedly entering their credit card information, customers can pay online with Samsung Wallet at the checkout.
Users can also add up to 10 payment cards, including debit, prepaid, and credit cards, to their Samsung Wallet. The wallet is a safe way to make payments because the card number is not stored on the mobile device.
D. Anand, QIB’s General Manager of Personal Banking Group, said, “We are pleased to introduce a secure and convenient mobile payment solution that enables customers to turn their devices into digital wallets. Samsung Wallet is the latest addition to the host of our mobile payment solutions and an important step towards the evolution of payment options, contributing to Qatar’s efforts to achieve a cashless society and offering our customers more convenience when shopping or dining.”
“As smartphones and smartwatches are quickly replacing cards, we are excited to now offer our customers the choice of using Samsung Wallet for making online payments and wherever contactless payment is accepted,” he added.
For use with the Samsung Wallet on smartphones and smartwatches, every device needs to have Android 9 or above installed.
