Samsung Electronics hari ini mengumumkan bahwa mereka telah setuju untuk mengakuisisi LoopPay, penyedia solusi mobile wallet tanpa kontak (contactless) yang aman.

LoopPay akan bergabung dengan Samsung untuk memperkuat keseluruhan upaya perusahaan untuk menyediakan pengguna dengan solusi mobile wallet yang mulus, aman, dan handal.

Sebagai bagian dari akuisisi, pendiri LoopPay dan veteran pengusaha industri pembayaran Will Graylin dan George Wallner akan bekerja sama dengan Divisi Samsung Mobile. LoopPay telah membangun solusi pembayaran contactless yang canggih dan diterima secara luas menggunakan teknologi Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST) yang telah dipatenkan.

Samsung memiliki hubungan yang erat dengan LoopPay, setelah pertama kali mengidentifikasi potensi teknologi perintis ketika menjadi investor strategis bersama dengan Visa dan Synchrony Financial.

"Kami sangat antusias untuk membawa hubungan kita dengan LoopPay ke tingkat berikutnya, dengan menghadirkan solusi mobile wallet buat konsumen yang tidak hanya aman dan dapat diandalkan, tetapi juga diterima secara luas di lebih banyak lokasi daripada layanan pesaingnya," kata David Eun, EVP dari Samsung Global Innovation Center.

Tujuan kami adalah untuk menawarkan produk-produk berharga bagi klien kami, penyedia layanan, dan pelanggan kami. Kami berharap dapat bekerja sama dengan LoopPay dan lainnya untuk memberikan solusi pembayaran mobile yang aman buat semua 60 juta rekening aktif kami."

"LoopPay difokuskan pada memberikan solusi dompet digital yang bisa diandalkan untuk konsumen di seluruh dunia, salah satu yang memberikan nilai lebih dari penerbit kartu dan merchant yang melayani mereka," kata Will Graylin, CEO LoopPay. "Kami sangat antusias untuk bergabung dengan keluarga Samsung untuk melanjutkan tujuan kami untuk membuat dompet smartphone yang terpercaya, aman, cerdas dan membuka kemungkinan tak terbatas dari mobile commerce."
