UAE-based operator Du has formed a partnership with Beam Wallet and Majid Al Futtaim Ventures in the field of smart retailing, Gulf News reported. Beam Wallet is an application that allows consumers to conduct retail transactions using smartphones, dispensing with the need to carry wallets. Around 5,000 retail outlets are likely to accept the Beam Wallet service by the end of the year. The consumer's credit card details are stored on the app and it works by scanning the QR (Quick Response) code.
