Samsung keeps building Samsung Pay by adding partners

Monday 7 August 2017 | 16:10 CET | Author: Bart Garvelink | Background
Samsung Pay comes with its own app, directly accessible from the lock screen of the phone. The standard interface to add cards is by simply scanning them with the camera in the phone. The Samsung Pay app then reads the card and retrieves the card credentials with the bank or merchant, to store them in the app. The smartphones come with the app pre-installed. This approach enables Samsung to launch with one or only a few banks and add cards later.
