Samsung Pay and Visa have joined forces to bring convenient grocery shopping to UAE residents who visit Lulu and Union Coop hypermarkets.

Shoppers will now be able to use Samsung's mobile payment service and pay for their goods using their smartphone instead of the traditional payment methods.

Samsung shoppers will need to download the app and add their debit or credit card details. Once this is completed, the consumer can pay for goods by holding their smartphone against the card reader. The service is compatible with a magnetic secure transmission (MST) technology and near field communications (NFC) technology.

Mohammad Gharaibeh, head of Enterprise, and Mobile Business at Samsung Gulf Electronics, said: "Samsung smartphone users will now be able to make convenient contactless payments at their favourite hypermarkets.

"This partnership will make cashless payments easier and simpler for everyone. Our goal with Samsung Pay is to drive and lead innovation in the digitalisation of payments systems throughout the UAE."

As part of this campaign, Visa will be offering customers the chance to win one of 65 brand-new Samsung S8 smartphones simply by paying via Samsung Pay at the store counter or by playing the game on Visa Facebook Page.

The Landmark Group has also adopted Samsung Pay in 600 stores across the UAE and India.
