Yesterday, Samsung quietly celebrated the first anniversary of its digital wallet platform. Samsung Pay arrived on the market one year later than Apple Pay but, until now, its growth rate managed to match the performance of its competitor during its early days. 

According to Injong Rhee, CTO and EVP of Software and Services, Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics, "Since its introduction a year ago, Samsung Pay continues to lead mobile payments by providing services that are simple, secure and virtually anywhere." Until now, the system processed almost 100 million transactions in the seven markets where it is available.

After one year on the market, Samsung Pay has more than 4 million registered membership cards in the United States and South Korea, currently supporting over 440 bank issuers. First supported by the high-end offerings of the South Korean giant, Samsung Pay is now available on mid-range devices like the 2016 models of the Galaxy A5, A7, and A9 as well.

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.
