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.
