Samsung Pay has been formally rolled out in India, and the service for digital payments will allow users to pay for anything using their NFC-enabled devices.

Samsung pay allows customers to use their linked debit and credit cards with selected Samsung Galaxy phones to pay for purchases wherever cards are accepted. You can also pair your PayTM account with it to make payments by scanning QR codes.

Samsung Pay offers three levels of security such as fingerprint authentication, card tokenisation and Samsung’s defence-grade mobile security platform Samsung KNOX. To use Samsung Pay, a user needs to swipe up on an eligible Samsung Galaxy smartphone, select the card, authenticate using a fingerprint or PIN and tap the smartphone near the POS terminal.

Having launched in numerous countries across the globe including the US, China and here in the UK, the move to bring Samsung Pay to India could be massive for the South Korean electronics giant.

Samsung Pay is currently compatible with Galaxy S7 edge, Galaxy S7, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 edge+, Galaxy A5 (2016), Galaxy A7 (2016), Galaxy A5 (2017) and Galaxy A7 (2017).

Vice president to Samsung Pay Thomas Ko stated: “When we launched Samsung Pay, our goal was to enable consumers across the globe to make payments that are simple, secure and accepted almost everywhere.

Over the past year and a half, this vision has evolved into building a complete digital wallet solution, allowing customers worldwide to not only make payments but also use membership and transit cards, receive deals and rewards and more.”
