Samsung has launched its mobile wallet service Samsung Pay in South Korea. It is an initiative of making in store purchase easy without using plastic cards for payment. According to Samsung, the technology integrated will work with a larger number of payment terminals.
Apple has also offered the Apply pay but to know the exact user metrics one has to wait for some time. Apple and Samsung are the brands offering to lighten the bulky wallet or the handbag. The facility of Samsung Pay is available only in the home country but it is likely to expand to the US from 28 September. Based on the company indication the Samsung Pay will be available in Spain and China as well. However, there are other additional factors such as it will work only latest Android Smartphones including:
- Galaxy S6
- Galaxy S6 Edge +
- Galaxy Edge
- Galaxy Note 5
The best part is that unlike other apps one don’t have to launch a separate app. One just have to swipe from the bottom to up of the device (front face) and Samsung Pay will appear. The next thing is to pick the credit card and provide the pin code or simply scan the fingerprint. Bring the mobile close to the terminal and payment will be done.
Although, it is difficult to say which one is better – Apple pay or Samsung pay, but with the kind of mobile payment that Samsung supports. Soon, the forthcoming payment service of Android Pay will also join the competition. Hence, we all should get ready to shop and pay with ease and integrated facilities.
