Samsung Pay launches for HSBC, first direct and M&S customers

20 Jun 2017

HSBC, first direct and M&S customers for the first time will be offering customers in the UK access to Samsung Pay, which will provide a smart and secure method for payments.

Samsung Pay will be available from 20 June.

Stuart Haire, Head of Retail Banking and Wealth Management UK, HSBC, said:

“Samsung Pay is just one of the ways we’re helping customers manage their money in a safe and convenient way. We are committed to provide a great customer experience across all of our retail platforms and are delighted to offer our customers the choice of using this easy-to-use payment system. “

Samsung Pay uses an encrypted digital token to replace sensitive card information to prevent fraud and to ensure each separate transaction is authorised uniquely anywhere where you can use your contactless credit or debit card.

This service is compatible on Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+, S7 and S7 edge, S6, S6 edge and S6 edge+ (which have the Android Nougat 7.0 software update), A3 and A5 2017.
