Samsung Pay drives Cashless Convenience forward: by Joining Forces with Boost in Malaysia
Samsung Malaysia Electronics is celebrating Samsung Pay’s third anniversary by developing and enhancing users’ mobile payment experiences. Today, Samsung Pay’s partnership with Axiata Digital eCode Sdn Bhd’s Boost e-wallet enables Samsung Galaxy devices to access convenient cashless payments from one single app, Samsung Pay.
This integration with Boost, Malaysia’s leading lifestyle e-wallet, powers Samsung Pay users to easily conduct cashless payments with cash merchants and small business owners even without having a physical credit, debit, or prepaid card. Samsung Pay now adds even more features such as loyalty cards and e-wallet services, allowing for straightforward digital transactions with businesses operating in night markets, food trucks, bazaars and more – so get working on that wish list because this is as real as it gets!
This all-in-one mobile payment platform also enables safe and secure cashless transactions for young users and students who do not use card payments. Just by scanning the QR code, customers with Premium Wallet can also easily share bills using Samsung Pay when using Boost’s functionality for peer-to-peer money transfers in the app. Moreover, top up can be made with any Visa, Mastercard, AMEX cards or even through online banking all within a single Samsung Pay app – now isn’t that a breeze?
“At Samsung, we continuously strive to deliver the best experiences to our customers,” said Yoonsoo Kim, President of Samsung Malaysia Electronics. “We are thrilled to be partnering with Boost, one of the top e-wallet providers in Malaysia with over 7.4 million users, to offer Samsung Pay users a richer mobile wallet experience. This partnership advances our commitment to providing customers with a more convenient payment experience that is simple, secure and available almost anywhere.”
Hail to Samsung’s Near-Field Communication (NFC) and patented Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST) technology, Samsung Pay is a widely accepted mobile payment platform that is simple, secure and works almost anywhere just by swiping and tapping your Galaxy device, from flagship models to most of the Samsung Galaxy A series and selected wearables on any contactless payment terminal.
Samsung Pay users can enjoy a peace of mind with Samsung Knox, digital tokenization and biometric authentication to ensure secure payments without adding risk to physical cards. Additionally, customers will also benefit from an array of deals and rewards such as Samsung Reward Points and Boost Coins when they transact with Boost QR payment within the Samsung Pay app.
“Boost is excited to be the first and exclusive e-wallet to partner Samsung Pay who shares our aspiration to see digital payments become part of our everyday lifestyle. Since 2017, Boost has been pushing the boundaries of digital payments by pioneering many industry firsts, giving Malaysians more reasons to go cashless. With 160,000 Boosted merchants and counting nationwide, we are committed to providing everyone with a simple, seamless and secure digital payment experience for users as well as merchants. As a Samsung Pay user for over a year, I am personally excited to be able to link my two most used payment methods – Boost and Samsung Pay – to handle all my transactions,” said Mohd Khairil Abdullah, CEO of Boost.
