Samsung Pay is already available in a handful of markets across the globe, and it seems the Korean company is all set to add more markets to the compatibility list.
According to a new report, Samsung Pay will launch in South Africa on September 22nd, the same day when the Galaxy Note 8 is expected to hit the retail shelves in the country.
Unfortunately, the company didn’t mention which banks currently supports the mobile payment service from the Korean company, but customers interested in using the service can link their PayPal account with Samsung Pay and use it to pay at brick-and-mortar stores across the country, earning reward points for every transaction processed using Samsung Pay.
Samsung Pay is compatible with a number of Galaxy smartphones, including the Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, Galaxy S7, Galaxy S6, Galaxy J7 Pro and Galaxy J7 (2016). The handset’s variants in some regions may not support, but that’s the complete list and you’ll have to check in your device if it comes with support for the mobile payment service.
We’ll update you as soon as Samsung Pay is officially released in South Africa.
