You can now use your Boost e-wallet via Samsung Pay

Samsung Malaysia Electronics has partnered Axiata Digital eCode to offer the Boost e-wallet as one of the payment options in Samsung Pay.

With the new integration with Boost, Samsung Pay users can now easily make cashless payments with merchants and small business owners without a physical credit, debit, or even prepaid card. This complements support for loyalty cards as well as major payment card networks such as Visa, Mastercard, and AMEX.

Samsung Pay is an all-in-one mobile payment platform that is secure and easy to use. Because of its unique two-prong approach offering both Near-Field Communication (NFC) and patented Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST) technology, Samsung Pay can be used virtually everywhere. Simply swipe up (even on a locked home screen) and tap supported Galaxy smartphones or wearables on any contactless payment terminal.

Peace of mind is assured thanks to Samsung Knox, digital tokenisation and biometric authentication.

What’s great for customers is that they can enjoy 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.

Since its establishment in 2017, Boost has grown to over 7.4 million users and 160,000 merchant partners nationwide.
