Samsung today announced that its digital wallet, Samsung Pay, is now available to HSBC, first direct and M&S Bank cardholders in the UK.
Simple, secure and almost anywhere, Samsung Pay enables users to make faster and smarter purchases. Additionally, Galaxy S8 and S8+ users can take advantage of the innovative iris scanner technology to authorise payments, providing a new layer of biometric security to ensure peace of mind.
HSBC, first direct and M&S Bank, join the growing portfolio of major payment networks and banks which Samsung Pay supports in the UK, including Mastercard and Visa, as well as cards issued by MBNA, Nationwide and Santander. More partners, including American Express, will be joining soon.
“Since launching in the UK last month, Samsung Pay has provided our UK users with a simple and secure payment method that can be used almost anywhere they can use their contactless payment cards”, said Conor Pierce, Vice President, IT & Mobile Division, Samsung Electronics UK & Ireland.
“We’re delighted to add HSBC to our line-up of supporting partners, helping more people to transform the way they pay for day-to-day items.”
Samsung Pay is designed to make paying with your device safe, simple and convenient.
