Samsung’s application store has introduced a new method to purchase apps for its users. From now on, users don’t need to rely on credit cards alone to make their payments from Samsung App. Users can now buy apps and pay it later through their postpaid bill or get it deducted from their prepaid balance irrespective of the service provider, such as Airtel and Vodafone.
A positive aspect of this is that users now need not to furnish their sensitive credit card information in order to purchase an application.
Apart from India, the service is now available in various other countries that include Germany, Austria, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Ukraine, Vietnam, Thailand and Indonesia.
“At Samsung Apps we’re committed to doing all we can to provide our customers with an enhanced user experience” said Kang-Hyun Kwon, senior vice president of media solution center, Samsung Electronics.
“The new payment method offers flexibility, choice and ultimately a simpler purchase journey,” added Kwon.
The new payment procedure is a secure and simple method which enables users to buy an app in just two clicks. Samsung Apps was launched in June 2010. At that time users were able to pay for the applications through their credit cards and other prepaid cards.
The new billing launch is being marked with a promotional event in which those customers buying apps during the promotion will be eligible for a lucky draw and random prizes. The promotion will continue from May 17 to June 20.
