Filed on March 14, 2021

The move will help LuLu customers make various in-app payments as well

LuLu Group, region's leading hypermarket and supermarket chain, has become the first major retailers to sign up on Empay, the world's first contactless lifestyle payment ecosystem with instant credit. Empay, designed and developed within the UAE's Smart Government programme framework, is a payment application for secure and cashless transactions.

LuLu customers can now use Empay for safe and contactless 'Tap and Go' payments while shopping at all of LuLu's 250 plus stores worldwide. Apart from 'Tap and Go', users can also make various in-app payments like government payments, online food ordering, education payments, utility bill payments and so much more.  In addition to this, Empay will provide instant credit facility to people who are in need of funds for making various payments without having to visit banks and complete long formalities and paperwork.

The partnership will set the course for the new age shopping and payment. Empay will also have exciting offers and deals for LuLu shoppers in the days to come. The residents in the UAE can freely download the super app from Google Play store or iOS App store, register in just two minutes and avail a Master Card powered Digital card within the app.

Commenting on the partnership, Ali Ibrahim, Deputy Director General of Dubai Economy and Chairman of Empay, said: "It's our honour to announce a compatible partnership of Empay with the biggest retail chain in the region - LuLu Group. Our multi-faceted, cashless and secure payment system to build a convenient and safe platform for reaching a larger diaspora of audience. We now bring Lulu to your fingertips."

Salim M A, Director of Lulu Group, added: "We are really excited to join hands with Empay in providing a cash-less & contact-less payment option for our shoppers. It has been our constant endeavor to come up with innovative, convenient and safe shopping experience both in-store & online. The fact that Empay is developed under the patronage of Dubai Economic Department (DED) makes us proud to be among the first major retailers to offers this service to our shoppers."

Muna Al Qassab, Chief Executive Officer at Empay, also said, "Empay prides in signing a great opportunity with the most prestigious retail chain in our region - LuLu, such that we are able to cater to a larger audience that enjoy buying groceries, purchasing products and much more with just a tap of the button.
