Verizon is bringing Samsung Pay support to select Galaxy devices via a future software update
After not being a part of the big Samsung Pay launch on September 28th, Verizon has finally announced that it will bring support for Samsung’s payment method to compatible devices via a future software update. There’s no word on exactly when Verizon will begin rolling out Samsung Pay support, but we do know that owners of the Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, Note 5 and S6 Edge+ will be among the first Big Red customers to use the new payment service.
If you own one of these devices on Verizon’s network and receive the software update, you’ll be able to use both NFC and MST (Magnetic Secure Transmission) payments in a number of different stores. You’ll also need a VISA, MasterCard or American Express card from Bank of America, Citi or U.S. Bank in order to use the service, too. Samsung is working to expand the list of supported banks and cards in the near future.
Like we said previously, there’s no word as to exactly when we can expect the software update. If you receive the update, be sure to let us know in the comment section below!
