Samsung Pay will soon cease to support Boost QR payments


Last updated: November 8th, 2021 at 17:31 UTC+01:00

Boost QR support will be going away from Samsung Pay next week, and the company recently began notifying Pay customers in Malaysia about the service’s closure. The Samsung Pay app will receive a mandatory update on November 15, after which Boost QR payments will no longer be available.

Samsung added support for Boost QR to Samsung Pay in Malaysia a year and a half ago. The idea was to give Boost QR customers and Samsung Pay users a way to bring these platforms together and perform cashless payments through Boost QR code scanning without the need for NFC or MST. The solution is obviously not as elegant as tapping your phone onto a payment terminal to transfer cash, but it works for what it is.

Samsung Pay customers can keep making Boost QR for another week

Boost QR will be removed from Samsung Pay next week, and the company hasn’t said much about why this change is happening. Perhaps the feature was not used by enough Samsung Pay customers to justify keeping it.

Whatever the case may be, existing Samsung Pay users in Malaysia can continue making Boost QR cashless payments until next week. However, people who have yet to use Boost QR in conjunction with Samsung Pay can no longer sign up to use this feature.
