Samsung partners with CIBC to offer Samsung Pay in Canada

It appears that Samsung is prepping for the launch of Samsung Pay in Canada. The company seems to have partnered with CIBC (Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce), one of the five biggest banks in Canada, to offer Samsung Pay to the users in the country.

A Reddit user who goes by the username sticktoit360 has posted that they were able to load Samsung Pay APK in a compatible smartphone, and were greeted with a message stating that Samsung Pay now works with select CIBC credit cards. We had reported last month that Samsung’s mobile payment system could be introduced in Canada in November, and it seems like the rollout will happen soon.

If you’re one of the CIBC customers in Canada, let us and other readers know if you’ve been able to activate Samsung Pay.

I wasn’t able to get past the part where I set up a pin or fingerprint. On APB7. Does earlier firmware make a difference?

Ohhh right how could I forget. I’m so dumb but I can’t use it yet since I’m with RBC.

ha, same boat. I don’t want to sign up to another credit card just so that I can use Mobile payment. Already did that with RBC.

Pre ordered the frontier at Bestbuy (only place you can pre order in Canada?) You? Kinda hesitated with the classic but it looks too much like that LG Urbane I had.

Same. Pre ordered from best buy frontier as well. need to find places in toronto where i can buy watch bands. I’ve been looking at nato straps but i wanna try them in real life before I buy anything.

I ordered a couple BARTON Quick Release Watch Bands on Amazon (dot) ca in anticipation. They feel nice but ill only know when I’ll have them on with the watch.

They are like NATO bands but did you order a 2 piece band instead of a 1 piece? Can’t cover the bottom of the watch with the charging port there

Got the two piece ones but it’s supposed to be wireless charging anyways…

There is also the heart rate sensor on the bottom right? Do these bands come with the lug connector?

Alright ill keep that in mind but i’ll most likely look for bands in stores I can go to rather than buying online.
