Dubai: As of Sunday, Samsung Pay users will be able to use the payment system at online checkout points, not just in-store, the company said in a statement.

The UAE is the first country in the Middle East where this latest feature of the mobile payments service has been enabled, following launches in the United States, Russia and Singapore.

Samsung Pay has entered the world of e-commerce through the CCAvenue payment gateway, alongside Mashreq Bank; the service is compatible with all major operating systems and browsers.
