Samsung Pay Now Available in Six Continents, Accelerating Global Expansion

 

Samsung Electronics today celebrated the third anniversary of its mobile payment platform, Samsung Pay. Originally launched in South Korea on August 20, 2015, Samsung Pay has experienced significant global growth and is now available in six continents1 and 24 markets2, including the latest market, South Africa. Thanks to the support and partnership of thousands of banks and countless network, merchant and service providers across the globe, Samsung recently passed more than 1.3 billion transactions globally.

 

“Since we launched Samsung Pay three years ago, we have been dedicated to delivering a mobile wallet platform that is simple, secure and works almost anywhere. We have been expanding its availability and forming strategic partnerships in each market to meet the unique needs of their users,” said DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division, Samsung Electronics. “And we’re not limiting ourselves to a mobile wallet – by integrating with our other mobile services, consumers will be able to earn Samsung Rewards points, use Bixby for a more seamless payment experience and more.”

 

The growth of Samsung Pay highlights the company’s localized and open approach to mobile payments. With approximately 2,000 banking and financial partners globally, Samsung Pay offers value-added services based on local market needs, including3:

 

  • Online payments, now available in 15 markets, including Australia, Brazil, Switzerland and Taiwan
  • Transit cards in 5 markets, including China, Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea and the U.K.
  • Loyalty and membership cards in 20 markets, including Canada, France, Mexico and Sweden
  • ATM transactions in 5 markets including Russia, South Korea, UAE, U.S. and Vietnam
  • Samsung Rewards, offering points to purchase merchant partner vouchers and Samsung products and services, available in 10 markets, including India, Malaysia, Spain and the U.S.
  • Pay Planner, helping users spend more wisely by tracking their transaction history and analysing their consumption pattern in South Korea and the UAE
  • Bixby integration, allowing users to make purchases at popular merchants with one simple request.

 

Samsung takes a localized approach for every launch, ensuring that the partnerships, value-added services and capabilities of Samsung Pay are customized for each market to provide the optimum mobile wallet service. Samsung also works with existing payment services so that when the service is introduced in the market, it’s seamlessly integrated into the payment infrastructure. For example, in Hong Kong, Samsung exclusively partnered with the Octopus Card Limited to bring NFC-enabled Octopus payments to the market’s diverse transit and retail establishments, offering customers a fast and simple payment experience. Samsung’s partnership network extends with support from retail and corporate leaders, including Ticket®, one of the largest benefits card providers for organizations in Brazil, and El Corte Inglés department store in Spain. By taking a localized approach to partnerships like these, millions of users benefit from having a centralized and secure payments platform across multiple card types, and exclusive rewards such as product vouchers, instant rebates and extra loyalty points.

 

Samsung’s model of open collaboration extends into the broader payments industry through partnerships with major financial institutions, including Alipay (China), WeChat Pay (China), BHIM UPI (India), PAYCO (South Korea), Chase Pay (U.S.), PayPal (U.S.), and NAPAS (Vietnam). By partnering with these financial leaders, Samsung Pay provides consumers with a more functional mobile payment platform. Additionally, with PayPal, users can now pay offline, and soon online via Samsung Pay. Other partnerships, such as those with Chase Pay (U.S.) and PAYCO (South Korea) use Samsung’s MST technology, giving customers even greater flexibility in how they make payments.

Samsung Pay Now Available in Mexico

As part of its ongoing commitment to revolutionizing the way payments are made, Samsung Electronics announced that Samsung Pay is now available in Mexico. Samsung Pay’s entry into the Mexican market marks the second Latin American country to receive the service and the 20th market worldwide.

 

With the launch of Samsung Pay in Mexico, users with a compatible Galaxy device* will now be able to easily make purchases through their smartphones at nearly any establishment across the country that accepts credit, debit, or loyalty cards.

 

While other payment platforms are limited by their use of Near Field Communication (NFC) technology, Samsung Pay offers both NFC and its proprietary Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST) technology, making it the most widely accepted mobile payment solution on the market. MST works by releasing a signal that acts like a traditional payment card’s magnetic band, allowing users to pay at nearly any conventional point of sale terminal**.

 

To bring this service to Mexico, Samsung strategically partnered with some of the country’s leading financial partners, including payment providers (American Express, MasterCard and Visa); banks (Banorte, Banregio, Citibanamex, HSBC and Santander); and banking acquirers, services and tools such as Clip and iZettle.

 

“We are excited to expand Samsung Pay across Latin America and are confident that our customers in Mexico will embrace the ability to easily pay and earn rewards through the convenience of their smartphones,” said Claudia Contreras, Marketing Director of Samsung Electronics Mexico. “We will continue working to forge alliances with additional partner institutions that our customers care about to reach even more users and help drive the growth of the digital economy.”

 

In addition to its widespread acceptance and ease of use, Samsung Pay is also one of the most secure payment options for users. Samsung Pay uses three levels of security to ensure its transactions are secure: biometric authentication through fingerprint or iris recognition; tokenization, a system that generates virtual information for each transaction rather than storing financial details in the device; and integration with Samsung Knox, the defense-grade security platform that monitors the device in real time to prevent suspicious use.

 

For a full list of partners that have aligned with Samsung Pay in Mexico, please visit: www.samsung.com/mx/samsungpay.

 

 

*In Mexico, Samsung Pay is compatible with the Galaxy Note8, Galaxy S8 and S8+, Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, Galaxy S6 edge+, Galaxy Note5, Galaxy A8 and A8+ (2018), Galaxy A5 (2016 and 2017), Galaxy A7 (2016 and 2017), Galaxy A9 (2016), Galaxy A3 (2017), Galaxy J5Pro and Galaxy J7Pro. Samsung Pay is exclusively for Samsung Galaxy smartphones and available through select payment networks, banks and retailers. The service’s availability is subject to change.

 

**Available almost anywhere, subject to Samsung Pay’s compatibility with MST and/or NFC payment terminals. Card readers on certain payment terminals could require a software update in order to become fully compatible with Samsung Pay.
