Today, the company launched its digital payment app for the owners of Samsung Galaxy Note5, Samsung Galaxy S7, Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+, Samsung Galaxy A7 (2016) (2017) and Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) (2017).

What is Samsung Pay

The Samsung Pay is a secure and easy to use mobile payment service available exclusively on select Samsung Galaxy smartphones — Samsung Galaxy Note5, Samsung Galaxy S7, Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+, Samsung Galaxy A7 (2016) (2017) and Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) (2017).

How Samsung Pay works

The above-mentioned smartphone users need to upgrade device firmware (software) first. Post upgrading the firmware, the user can download the Samsung Pay app and save their credit card and debit card information in the app. So, the next time you need to make the payment, you can do so by using the Samsung Pay services using the smartphone.

Banks supported in India
Currently, the Samsung Pay app supports credit and debit cards of Axis Bank, HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank and Standard Chartered Bank. For State Bank of India, only the credit cards are supported while the support for debit cards will be added sometime in the future.
