Samsung will launch its mobile payment platform in Singapore on June 16


Last updated: June 10th, 2016 at 07:19 UTC+02:00

Samsung has today announced that it will launch its mobile payment platform in Singapore on Thursday, June 16. This news comes just one month after the South Korean company opened a beta testing scheme in the region, which enabled a small selection of eager customers to sign up for the opportunity to test Samsung Pay before it went live for all compatible smartphones in the country.

At launch, users will be able to add any MasterCard, Visa, Citibank, DBS/POSB, OCBC Bank or Standard Chartered credit/debit card to their virtual wallet, and will be able to use it to pay for goods in forty major franchises, which includes supermarkets, convenience stores, department stores, restaurants, clothes stores, electronics stores and travel agencies.

Unfortunately, the service will only be available on a small selection of handsets in Singapore to start with — the Galaxy Note 5 4G+, Galaxy S6 edge+ 4G+, Galaxy S7 4G+ and Galaxy S7 edge 4G+. However, we expect compatibility to expand to some of the firm’s most recent smartphones, such as the Galaxy A5 (2016) and Galaxy A7 (2016), in the not-too-distant future.
