NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. announced today that Samsung Pay, the most accepted mobile payment system, now supports eligible Chase Visa® credit, debit and Liquid® cards, as well as debit and credit offerings from MasterCard issuers: Citizens Equity First Credit Union, Randolph-Brooks Federal Credit Union, Security Service Federal Credit Union, State Employees’ Credit Union, SunTrust and Virginia Credit Union. Samsung Pay also now supports Navy Federal Credit Union Visa® credit and debit cards. Cardholders of all these issuers will be able to use Samsung Pay to pay almost anywhere they can swipe or tap their card.
“With expanded support from eight additional issuers, including Chase and SunTrust, we look forward to building even more momentum around Samsung Pay,” said Injong Rhee, EVP of Samsung Electronics, Global Head of Samsung Pay. “Through our ever expanding ecosystem of financial partners, Samsung Pay users will be able to take advantage of the most widely accepted mobile payment solution.”
“Samsung Pay gives our customers another convenient way to pay with their Chase cards,” said Gavin Michael, Head of Digital for Chase. “They choose how they want to pay.”
All three major payment networks will continue to be supported by Samsung Pay: American Express, MasterCard and Visa, as well as major banks including Bank of America, Chase, Citi, Navy Federal Credit Union, SunTrust, U.S. Bank, and key partners including Blackhawk Network, First Data, Global Payments, Synchrony Financial, TSYS, Vantiv, and Worldpay.
- SIMPLE: To make a payment on Samsung Pay, users can simply swipe up, scan their fingerprint and pay.
- SAFE: Samsung Pay uses tokenization, Samsung KNOX, and fingerprint authentication to provide secure payments. And, as terminals are upgraded to EMV, that security is leveraged, too.
- ALMOST ANYWHERE: Samsung Pay is compatible with most existing and new terminals, including most magnetic stripe, EMV and NFC terminals*. That means Samsung Pay works at more places than any other mobile payment service.
