Etisalat brings UAE’s first smartphone self-service vending machine to Abu Dhabi
Etisalat has launched a smartphone self-service vending machine in Abu Dhabi.
The vending machine provides a range of selected handsets and accessories for both Android and iOS. When prompted, a customer inserts his or her Emirates ID card, checks the personal information displayed on the screen, enters or modifies the mobile number, and selects the item and the payment method.
Both cash and credit cards are accepted. The machine will dispense the product and receipt at the end of the transaction.
The first machine is available at the ADNOC Distribution service station located on the Abu Dhabi Corniche.
Sultan Mohamed Al Dhaheri, general manager, Etisalat Abu Dhabi, said, “We are delighted to be partnering with ADNOC Distribution in this pilot project to promote and make the availability of Etisalat mobile products and services at a prime location in Abu Dhabi.
“The launch of the UAE’s first self-service vending machine at ADNOC Distribution’s service station reaffirms our strong commitment to innovation and adopting the latest retail technologies to deliver digital and a seamless shopping experience for customers.”
