Samsung Pay to integrate El Corte Ingles store card

Thursday 19 May 2016 | 14:52 CET | News
The store card of Spain's El Corte Ingles, the largest department store group in Europe, will be added to the Samsung Pay m-payment service by the end of the year, announced the two companies in a joint statement. The agreement converts El Corte Ingles into the first Spanish private card issuer to join Samsung Pay, meaning nearly 11 million cardholders will be able to pay for items directly from their smartphones. Customers will need to add the El Corte Ingles card to the Samsung Pay app on compatible Samsung devices and then authorise payment with the fingerprint sensor.
