PayBy’s Contactless Payment Option Now Available At Al Maya Supermarkets Across UAEby Fintechnews Middle East 31. May 2021
PayBy, an Abu Dhabi-based payments startup, has partnered with Al Maya Group to provide the latter with secure, contactless payment option across 49 of its supermarkets across the UAE.
When shopping in Al Maya supermarkets, customers simply present the QR code in their PayBy app, let the cashier scan it and wait for the payment confirmation.
Al Maya supermarkets cashiers use PayBy Smart POS machines to scan the QR Code sent on the shopper’s mobile. Smart POS devices enable merchants to receive or refund transactional money.
PayBy will also support Al Maya supermarkets’ digital shopping platform.
In the next phase of the partnership, PayBy will be integrated with the Al Maya’s mobile application, so online shoppers can pay on delivery using cashless methods.
Kamal Vachani, Al Maya Group’s Director said,
“Since the pandemic began, we have consciously pivoted to serve customers in a safe and secure manner, whether in store or through home deliveries. The collaboration with PayBy ensures consumers who choose to shop in store can pay for their baskets using this contactless, swift and convenient payment option. At the back-end, PayBy enhances operational efficiencies, and safeguards staff health and welfare as they are not required to handle cash or cards.”
