It was only two weeks ago that Samsung launched a pre-registration page for customers in Singapore, enabling them to sign up for an opportunity to test Samsung Pay before it goes live in the country. The company today announced its partnership with Citibank Singapore Limited for Samsung Pay. This partnership will enable Citibank credit cardholders to make payments on the go using their compatible Samsung handsets.

“The partnership with Citibank, alongside our ecosystem of partners across payment networks, banks, retailers and merchants, assures customers that they will be able to enjoy the full benefits of using Samsung Pay almost anywhere in Singapore,” said Eugene Goh, Vice President, IT & Mobile, Samsung Electronics Singapore.

Those who have registered to be a part of the beta test will be among the first to preview Samsung Pay in Singapore ahead of its launch in Q2 2016. Samsung says that thousands have signed up for this opportunity and now that registration has been closed, it’s going to progressively notify those who have been selected for the Samsung Pay Beta Test Program. Samsung Pay compatible handsets for customers in Singapore include the Galaxy Note 5 4G+, the S6 edge+ 4G+, the Galaxy S7 4G+ and the S7 edge 4G+.
