Diebold, Rakbank collaborate to add Samsung Pay cardless access at ATMs
The National Bank of Ras Al Khaimah, a leading bank in the United Arab Emirates, has partnered with Diebold Nixdorf to launch Samsung Pay on Rakbank ATMs.
The Samsung Pay solution for ATMs is an end-to-end contactless digital process for secure and convenient cardless cash withdrawal at more than 250 Rakbank ATMs.
Once a consumer is registered for a Samsung Pay account, he or she can begin to use the cardless solution simply by tapping their device on the NFC reader on the ATM. Once the phone has been detected, the consumer enters a PIN and completes the transaction as normal.
"Diebold Nixdorf was the first in the world to enable a live deployment and direct interaction between a phone and an ATM," Habib Hanna, Diebold Nixdorf managing director for the Middle East, said in the release. "Years later, we continue to pioneer cardless transactions with our mobile-enabled solutions that bridge the physical to digital worlds of cash to truly drive connected commerce."
"We are the first bank in the Middle East to launch Samsung Pay solutions to ATMs and it not only simplifies the customer experience when withdrawing cash, but also offers them the utmost convenience," Rakbank CEO Peter England said in the release. "Rakbank is fully committed to placing our customers' needs first and providing them with highly convenient, secure, and simple digital banking services," added Peter.
