Al Salam Bank announced introducing Samsung Wallet enabling users contactless payments using their Samsung devices on any POS or payment system. Payment authentication will be using facial or fingerprint recognition, a PIN code, or One-Time Password.

The service, the bank said, is approved at various supermarkets, pharmacies, restaurants, cafés, retail shops, and more, both inside and outside of the Kingdom.

Customers can also avail several services including: food delivery, online shopping, and car parking. Starting from the 16th of April 2023, clients will be able to instantly add their debit, credit, and prepaid cards from Al Salam Bank to the Samsung Wallet application from anywhere around the world with just one click.

When making use of this service, each user will receive a unique PIN that is then encrypted and stored in an industry-compliant certified chip designed to safely store payment information on the device.
