BBK introduces the Samsung Wallet service for its customers

12 Dec 2022

BBK, Bahrain’s pioneer in retail and commercial banking, has announced the launch of the Samsung Wallet service for all its customers, making it the first bank in Bahrain to provide this service, thereby enhancing its leadership in meeting the aspirations of its customers and providing them with the latest digital financial and banking services.
This service forms part of the bank’s array of payment options, enabling customers to perform secure cashless transactions.
Samsung Wallet is notable for its simplicity and ease of use, as a user simply places a Samsung device near the NFC-enabled Point of Sale (POS) machine to make contactless payments. It ensures the security of every purchase, through facial recognition, fingerprint scanning or device passcodes, as well as the one-time password (OTP).
Now, BBK customers can utilize Samsung Wallet using their Samsung devices to make payments for software applications, as well as products and services in retail stores, food delivery services, pharmacies restaurants, cafes, and online stores for quicker and easier purchases.
Customers can easily activate Samsung Wallet on their Android device by simply downloading the app, and following the on-screen instructions to add their BBK debit card. Once the customer’s card has been linked to the phone, they can immediately begin utilizing this service.
It is noteworthy that Samsung Wallet handles both Near-field communication (NFC) and Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST) terminal facilities, making it easy to use in any store where the cards are approved.
Commenting on the launch, Dr. Adel Salem, General Manager of Retail Banking at BBK, explained that this new service is a part of the bank’s digital transformation initiatives which will enable customers to perform digital payments using their smartphone devices.

This ensures the provision of banking and financial services that keep pace with modern payment concepts and facilitates customers to conduct transactions through their devices easily – while maintaining the highest standards of security.
Dr. Adel said that BBK continues its pioneering work in the field of digital financial services, providing its customers with flexibility for financial transactions and offering reliable solutions. “As per the bank’s strategic plan, meeting customer expectations and adapting to future changes are our top priorities. This is in addition to promoting cybersecurity for both local and international transactions. We will always strive to surpass our clients’ aspirations, giving them access to a range of unique services. BBK will work with both current and prospective customers and continue to offer the very best digital financial services available in the Kingdom of Bahrain.”
