Yesterday we heard that Samsung had teamed up with Visa for mobile payments, and now Samsung has announced a new feature for its Android devices, Samsung Wallet, which is similar to Apple’s Passbook.
Samsung wallet is designed to let you store things like tickets on your Samsung device, and the app also offer some other feature which include location based push notifications and more.
By using Samsung Wallet API, partners can integrate their Associate Apps and Samsung Wallet in the way that they can add their tickets and coupons to Samsung Wallet. The easy to use, time and location based push notification feature of Samsung Wallet will alert partner’s relevant coupons and tickets to users, providing increased access to partner’s Associate Apps, not to mention real-time updates on membership card points and changes to boarding passes. Samsung Wallet also adopts a co-marketing coupons that provides optimal marketing effect to partners. As more and more users enjoy Samsung Wallet, the same will happen to Associate Apps, enabling a win-win commerce ecosystem.
Samsung will officially announce their new Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone on the 14th of March, and we suspect that this will be one of the first Samsung devices to use the new Samsung Wallet app.
