Samsung‘s mobile payment service, Samsung Pay, is now available on Qoo10 and Vaniday. The new partnership brings additional convenience to consumers the next time they check out their in-app purchases.
“We are constantly looking for new ways to increase the adoption of Samsung Pay within Singapore by giving users more opportunities to enjoy our mobile payment app at their convenience,” said Lee Jui Siang, President, Samsung Electronics Singapore. “The key to improving Samsung Pay is ensuring compatibility with as many merchants and apps as possible and this partnership with Qoo10 and Vaniday lets consumers select Samsung Pay as a check-out option in-app, a first for Samsung Pay in Singapore and we will continue to expand this horizon to include more partner merchants.”
SETTING UP SAMSUNG PAY
With Samsung Pay set up, consumers can authenticate their transactions using security features such as the iris scan, fingerprint scan or PIN code on their Samsung smartphones.
If you are worried about security, don’t be.
According to Samsung, “the Samsung Pay uses an encrypted digital token to replace sensitive card information to prevent fraud. Transactions made on Samsung Pay require registered fingerprint or iris scan or PIN for authorisation, so you are in control when each payment is made. The encrypted fingerprint and iris scan information are stored in a separate, secure area of your device. Samsung’s industry-leading defence grade Knox security platform, which received the most “Strong” ratings of any mobile security platform for Corporate Managed Security, provides real-time kernel protection and monitors malicious software and activities on your device for added security.”
From now, all users who opt for the Samsung Pay check-out option on the Qoo10 mobile app will be entitled to the following promotions:
- Enjoy special S$2 deals on Qoo10 with check-out transaction with Samsung Pay
- For transactions made with Samsung Pay with a minimum spend of S$20, users will receive a S$5 discount voucher for use on Qoo10.
- Users of Samsung Pay via the Qoo10 mobile app can also earn Samsung Rewards points and
redeem S$5 vouchers for use on Qoo10 from 17 October 2017.
Exclusively for Samsung Pay users, Vaniday will offer a one-time S$15 off discount on first-time booking (via Vaniday mobile app) to use on any beauty and wellness service on the platform.
