Samsung has made it quite clear that it wants to lead the way in mobile payments with Samsung Pay, it’s working hard to add more supported issuers to the service, and is also working on expanding its footprint to other markets across the globe. It’s already the most accepted mobile payment service because of the fact that it works wherever you can pay by a credit or debit card, courtesy of its support for both NFC and MST technologies. Today the company has further expanded its Samsung Pay partnership ecosystem by adding support for 19 additional MasterCard and Visa issuers.
Supported issuers include eligible PNC Visa credit and debit cards as well as KeyBank MasterCard credit and debit cards.TCF Bank, Central Florida Educators Federal Credit Union, Financial Center Federal Credit Union, Greater Kinston Federal Credit Union, Keypoint Credit Union, Numerica Credit Union, Utah Community Credit Union, Amegy Bank National Association, California Bank and Trust and Pentagon Federal Credit Union are also supported alongside Achieva Credit Union, Associated Bank, Bayport Credit Union, Bethpage Federal Credit Union, Cambridge Savings Bank, USC Credit Union and Navy Federal Credit Union.
All cardholders of these issuers will now be able to activate Samsung Pay and store their payments cards within the app to effortlessly make mobile payments wherever they can swipe or tap their card in the United States. If they don’t want to use their cards then they can opt for gift cards, Samsung Pay only recently got support for gift cards.
