Samsung Pay updated in the US with support for 16 new banks
Samsung Pay
One day after its launch on the Chinese market, this mobile payment service receives an update in the US, gaining support for sixteen new banks and credit unions.

Samsung Pay looks to be one of the key ingredients that will help the South Korean giant maintain its rate of growth and maybe even increase it. This mobile payments service is currently expanding to new markets and is also growing faster than its competitor backed by Apple. Now, the service just got an update in the US.

Samsung Pay entered the Chinese market yesterday and today it gets an update in the US by adding support for new banks and credit unions. Thanks to the new agreements signed by the company, Samsung Pay now has support for sixteen additional banks and credit unions across the US. This is the entire list: Altra Federal Credit Union, Bank of England, Benchmark Federal Credit Union, Blackhawk Community Credit Union, BHCU, Fidelity Bank, Founders Federal Credit Union, Greater Texas Federal Credit Union, Henrico Federal Credit Union, Kern Schools Federal Credit Union, Justice Federal Credit Union, MSU Federal Credit Union, NuMark Credit Union, Old National Bank, Star One Credit Union, and TruWest Credit Union.

Unfortunately, not all the clients of these banks who own a compatible Samsung handset can use the service for now. Right now, there are still cards not compatible with this service. The list of compatible cards can be found on Samsung's website.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
