SHOPPERS can now use their smartphones to pay at the checkout counter following a partnership between bwallet and Lulu Bahrain Hypermarkets to provide secure and convenient cashless payments … with special rewards included.

Users will get a five per cent cashback on all purchases by scanning a QR code to complete purchases.
