Samsung Pay launched in UAE

Samsung have launched their payment service in the UAE.

Samsung Pay has been building quite the backing over the past year and so the company has decided to aid distribution efforts by releasing their payment system to the UAE. The payment system can now be used to pay on certain websites as a way to complete online purchases and is available for both mobile and desktop users.

Once signed into a Samsung account, Samsung Pay can be selected from the payment options menu for a select number of participating vendors. Samsung hope that this number will increase as the payment system gains some following in the UAE. If paying through a desktop though, bio-metric or pin verification is still needed from the mobile device which has the registered Samsung account associated with it.

At the moment, the payment system is available for a variety of devices (listed below) but as mentioned above, Samsung's aim is to branch its availability out further before adding support for extra devices.

  • Samsung Galaxy S9
  • Samsung Galaxy S9+
