UAE, 22 January 2020:   Samsung is further enhancing UAE customers' mobile payment experience by collaborating with First Abu Dhabi Bank (FAB) and Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank (ADIB) to enable access to Samsung Pay, the leading digital payment and digital wallet solution.
 
The two new issuer partnerships extend Samsung Pay's partnership ecosystem to offer greater flexibility, access, and choice for customers, while also accelerating mobile payment adoption.

Samsung Pay is a simple and intuitive mobile payment service, which ensures swift and secure transactions for customers who can just swipe or tap their credit or debit cards to make purchases almost anywhere.
 
“Our partnership with FAB and ADIB as a payment enabler is an integral part of the digital solution Samsung Pay offers in the tech-forward UAE market and an additional guarantee of the quality of service that our customers are accustomed to and expect from us,” said Mohammad Gharaibeh, Head of Enterprise, Mobile Business at Samsung Gulf Electronics], at Samsung Gulf Electronics.
