Is your wallet starting to feel a little thick? It happens to all of us, and not because we’re carrying around so much cash. With all the debit cards, credit cards and loyalty cards out there these days, it’s easy for a once-tidy wallet to quickly spin out of control. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could replace all that plastic with something a little more streamlined?
Enter Samsung Pay, the app that makes everyday purchases faster and more convenient than ever before. Available on many Samsung Galaxy smartphones, the app lets you add select debit, credit and loyalty cards for easy access all in one place. Simply swipe up to access the app, authenticate with a PIN, fingerprint or iris, and you’re ready to pay.
At this point you might be thinking, “But my favourite coffee shop doesn’t take tap payment!” That’s where Samsung’s Magnetic Secure Transmission technology comes in; by emitting and magnetic signal that mimics the magnetic strip on traditional payment cards, the app can be used almost anywhere you would normally swipe. Did someone say game-changer?
The best part? Your accounts are totally safe and protected, and can be backed up and restored using your Samsung Account. Technology FTW!
