Under the terms of the agreement, Woolworths Group stores, including Woolworths Supermarkets, Dan Murphy’s and BWS liquor stores and BigW discount department stores, will also accept mobile QuickPass in the near future.

UnionPay said its QuickPass mobile payment solution supports debit/credit function, e-cash and extended e-cash function through contactless communication.

Additionally, the mobile QuickPass supports offline payments with smartphone, wearable devices and UnionPay chip cards, as well as online mobile payments.

The latest agreement follows an earlier contract signed in February 2017, whereby Woolworths agreed to accept UnionPay-branded debit and credit cards across selected supermarkets.
