Having received the "Best Mobile Innovation for Payment" award at the annual Global Mobile Awards (GLOMO Awards) earlier this year, Samsung Pay has just reached Italy. This mobile payment service works with quite a few Samsung devices, including the new Galaxy S9/S9+ flagships.

This week, Samsung Pay became available in Italy. Thanks to this new addition, the list of markets where this mobile payment service is available now consists of 21 names. Sadly, the Samsung Pay reward program has a more limited reach and can only be enjoyed by customers in the US, Singapore, Malaysia, South Korea, Taiwan, Vietnam, Brazil, and Spain.

According to Yongje Kim, Executive Vice President of Service Business Office, Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics, "The rapid growth of Samsung Pay has been made possible by Samsung’s commitment to an open model of collaboration around the world, resulting in over 1,700 partnerships, including payment providers Visa and Mastercard."

Samsung Pay continues to support both MST and NFC payments, so it currently is the most widely accepted mobile payment service on the market. In Italy, it works at virtually all existing locations that accept credit or debit cards. The list of compatible devices includes the new Galaxy S9/S9+ flagships, wearables like the Gear Sport and Gear S3, as well as other handsets such as the Galaxy S7/S7 Edge, Galaxy A8, Galaxy Note 8, and more.

At last, we should also highlight that Italian users of Samsung Pay get some exclusive discounts of up to 20 percent on brands like Daybreak Hotel, EF Education, Leroy Merlin, and Moleskine.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
