Платёжный сервис Samsung Pay запущен ещё в 4-х странах




27 апреля корпорация Samsung Electronics распространила официальный пресс-релиз, в котором говорится, что её мобильный платёжный сервис Samsung Pay начал работу ещё в 4-х странах: Швеции, Объединённый Арабских Эмиратах (ОАЭ), Гонконге и Швейцарии. Причём в первых двух уже осуществлён полноценный запуск, а в двух других сервис начал действовать в тестовом режиме и окончательное внедрение не за горами.
"Менее 2-х лет назад Samsung Pay впервые появился в Южной Корее с одной целью: расширить возможности клиентов, владеющих мобильной техникой Samsung, по простой и надёжной оплате товаров и услуг",- говорит Томас Ко, вице-президент и гендиректор по глобальному развитию Samsung Pay.
"Сегодня Samsung Pay распространил своё влияние в гораздо больших масштабах. Запуски нашего сервиса в разных странах и на разных континентах свидетельствуют о том, что их правительства и потребители изменили отношение к прогрессу в области безналичных расчётов. Именно благодаря интересу и поддержке наших партнёров мы можем ответить на их запросы, предлагая услуги Samsung Pay на этих рынках. Мы очень гордимся нашим быстрым развитием и ростом за столь непродолжительный срок и с нетерпением ожидаем, что самый полноценный электронный кошелёк будет доступен нашим пользователям по всему миру.", - резюмировал Томас Ко. 
Особо следует отметить, что Samsung активно выводит доступность Samsung Pay за пределы обычных мобильных устройств. Теперь оплату можно совершать также с помощью TIZEN-часов серии Samsung Gear S3 (в том числе на территории России), а в некоторых странах Samsung Pay уже скоро позволит осуществлять покупки через смарт-телевизоры и даже "интеллектуальные" холодильники серии Family Hub. 
К настоящему времени сервис Samsung Pay доступен жителям Южной Кореи, США, Китая, Испании, России, Австралии, Сингапура, Пуэрто-Рико, Таиланда, Малайзии, Индии, Бразилии, Швеции и ОАЭ.

Samsung Pay Continues Rapid Global Growth with Four Market Expansions

Samsung Electronics today celebrates the continued growth and enthusiasm for Samsung Pay around the world by expanding in four markets over two days. Samsung Pay officially launches in Sweden and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and enters early access in Hong Kong and Switzerland.
With these market expansions, Samsung Pay continues to both bring mobile payments to new regions of the world and expand to new markets in regions where the service is already available. Launches in the UAE and Sweden showcase Samsung Pay’s first markets in the Middle East and the Nordics respectively, while Hong Kong and Switzerland demonstrate continued commitment and strength in Asia and Europe.
“Less than two years ago, Samsung Pay came to life in Korea with a simple mission: To empower customers with mobile payments that are simple, secure and available almost anywhere,” said Thomas Ko, VP and Global General Manager of Samsung Pay. “Today, Samsung Pay is so much more. Our launches in different parts of the world demonstrate governments’ and consumers’ changing attitudes towards progressing to a cashless society. It is through the interest and support of our partners that we are able to answer their needs by offering Samsung Pay in these markets. We are incredibly proud of our rapid expansion and growth in such a short period of time, and look forward to bringing the most comprehensive digital wallet to all our users around the world.”

Samsung Pay on the Galaxy S8, S8+ and Gear S3

With the availability of the Galaxy S8 and S8+, users will be able to exclusively take advantage of several new features for an enhanced experience with Samsung Pay.
In addition to the existing authentication methods, Galaxy S8/S8+ users can make use of iris scanning as a new form of biometric authentication to access Samsung Pay, enabling a secure, yet more convenient way to pay.
To continue the evolution to a digital wallet, Samsung Pay continues to expand its availability beyond smartphones by introducing Samsung Pay on the Gear S3 in three additional markets. Beginning in April, Samsung Pay is newly supported on the Gear S3 in Russia, Sweden and the UAE, in addition to the US, Singapore and Australia, enabling an even more convenient way for users to pay with their smartwatches. Details on additional Gear S3 support elsewhere will be available soon.

Attaining the Vision of a Digital Wallet

Since the initial launch of Samsung Pay, Samsung has remained committed to the vision of building more than just a mobile payment solution through the introduction of value-added services tailored to local audience preferences.
Samsung Pay continues to enhance and add even more value-added services worldwide, bringing custom solutions and partnerships to users wherever they are.
With the latest launches, Samsung Pay now also integrates loyalty and membership cards in Sweden and the UAE, which can be added to users’ mobile wallets without requiring physical cards. In Switzerland, pre-paid cards will also be supported, allowing users to pay from their preferred cards outside of the normal credit and debit options.
Value-added services continue to be a critical differentiator for Samsung Pay in the mobile payments market. More custom services for users around the world will be made available in respective markets shortly.
