Chase customers can use Samsung Pay almost anywhere they can swipe or tap a card
NEW YORK – November 23, 2015 – Chase Visa® cardholders can now use Samsung Pay to make simple and safe mobile payments, the companies announced today.
“Samsung Pay gives our customers another convenient way to pay with their Chase Visa credit, debit or Chase Liquid® cards,” said Gavin Michael, Head of Digital for Chase. “They choose how they want to pay.”
Starting today, Chase customers can use select Samsung Galaxy devices – S6, S6 edge, S6 edge+ and Note 5 – to pay almost anywhere they can swipe or tap their selected Chase Visa card.
Samsung Pay processes payments securely at the register using its proprietary Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST), which enables acceptance with existing mag stripe point-of-sale (POS) terminals, and Near Field Communication (NFC).
Chase is a valued partner in our ongoing launch of Samsung Pay,” said Injong Rhee, EVP of Samsung Electronics, Global Head of Samsung Pay. “As consumers increasingly rely on their mobile devices in their everyday lives, our work with Chase as well as our other partners, will only enhance the mobile experience and convenience for our customers and give them even more flexibility and choice for how to pay.”
Chase customers can take advantage of Samsung Pay’s convenience and safety: ?
- Simple: Users can swipe up, scan their fingerprint and pay.
- Safe: Using a Device Account Number to process payments eliminates the need to share the customer’s card number with the merchant or store it on the device.
- Pay Almost Anywhere: Samsung Pay works with most existing and new terminals, including most magnetic stripe, EMV and NFC terminals*. In short, it works almost anywhere you can swipe or tap your card
