Samsung has announced that its mobile payments service has been launched in Spain today, pointing out that Spain is the first country in Europe where Samsung Pay has been introduced so far. Samsung Pay was first launched in South Korea and later in the United States. A couple of months ago the service also went live for users in China. It happens to be the first such payments service of its kind in Spain and a research commissioned by Samsung reveals that almost six in 10 Spaniards are interested in adopting a secure, simple, and widely accepted mobile payments service like Samsung Pay.
Samsung smartphones compatible with Samsung Pay in Spain include the Galaxy S7, the Galaxy S7 edge, the Galaxy S6, the Galaxy S6 edge, and the Galaxy S6 edge+, with specific availability varying by local operator. The Galaxy A5 2016 is going to get support for Samsung Pay in the coming weeks. CaixaBank and imaginBank are onboard so their customers can use their debit or credit cards to make payments via Samsung Pay. Support for Abanca and Banco Sabadell customers will arrive soon.
