Samsung To Terminate Boost QR Payment Feature In Samsung Pay App
Author Avatar

Samsung will be terminating the Boost QR payment feature on its Samsung Pay app, effective from 15 November 2021 onwards.

In an email to its users, Samsung said that all users will be required to update their Samsung Pay app on the scheduled day, or at a date as notified in-app, so that this change can be reflected. Between today until 15 November, however, existing users who have linked their Boost account to Samsung Pay will still be able to continue using the Boost QR payment feature for their purchases.

Samsung further reassured users that their Boost e-wallet balance will not be affected following this update, along with their Boost Partner Wallet credit or credit top-up via Samsung Pay. This is because the balance amount is parked within the Boost e-wallet itself.

Additionally, Samsung stated that it will no longer be manually crediting missing Samsung Rewards Points to users when they use the Samsung Pay Boost QR payment feature to scan DuitNow QR codes by non-Boost e-wallets. This takes effect immediately.

The integration of the Boost QR payment feature within Samsung Pay came about following a partnership between Samsung with Axiata Digital eCode Sdn Bhd in 2020. It was officially announced in May 2020, with the aim to provide seamless and secure cashless payment options, but was hinted at since March itself.
