Samsung Pay arrives in Spain, you can now pay with your mobile in total security

Now yes, Samsung Pay already works in SpainThis is the Samsung mobile payment system to pay with your mobile.

See getting used to mobile payments, because they start to take off. If there is something that we always carry with us (or at least almost always) it is our smartphone and, as we have said on numerous occasions, it has long since left where it was just phones.

In August 2015 Samsung announced to the world Samsung Pay, its own mobile payment system, preparing itself for a technology that we will end up using all and replace traditional payment methods for their simplicity and security.

Goodbye to cash and cards, mobile payments are here to stay

If you don’t know what this is all about, you may be wondering what mobile payments are? Well it’s simple: pay with our mobiles with an ultra simple and safe process, because those two words are essential for this to succeed: simplicity and security, so that the user ends up trusting the system.

In recent months we have seen how Apple Pay and Android Pay, Google’s solution, have appeared, but at the moment neither works in Spain.The Samsung South Koreans were not going to stay behind and announced Samsung Pay, their own solution that, for the moment, only It is compatible with some Galaxy models.

After a long wait, since June 2 it is already available in Spain, Samsung Pay is already operational and you can start paying with your mobile.

How Samsung Pay works

Samsung Pay is a mobile payment system, therefore it allows you to carry out transactions with a simple gesture: move the smartphone closer to the telephone or the payment option contact that they have in commerce. Ready, automatically the payment will be made and you can be so happy with your purchase.

It works thanks to the NFC technology, which is in charge of establishing communication with the sales terminal, even if you do not have coverage when making the payment.

The Samsung smartphones that are compatible with Samsung Pay are:

  • Galaxy S7
  • Galaxy S7 Edge
  • Galaxy S6
  • Galaxy S6 Edge
  • Galaxy S6 Edge +

They should install the samsung pay app which is available for free on Google Play:

When paying, just make a gesture on the main button, place your fingerprint or put the PIN security (a great option to avoid unwanted payments) and move the phone closer to the dataphone.

Banks compatible with Samsung Pay

Obviously Samsung Pay works as a payment platform, so we need associate our card in the application itself. That yes, for it to work we must make sure that our bank is among the compatible ones.

At the moment, the only two banks that are officially supported are La Caixa and ImaginBankSo your customers can add their cards to Samsung Pay. However, there are also other companies and services that have announced that they will be compatible, such as Repsol or El Corte Ingls.

It is expected that more and more banks are joining Samsung Pay (confirmed Abanca and Banco Sabadell)In the coming weeks and months, we will inform you as they become official.

In addition, as we were told during the presentation, Samsung is collaborating with multitude of companies in the catering, food, service station and more sectors, such as Cpesa, MediaMarkt, Mercadona, Repsol, La Surea, Dominos Pizza, DIA, 100 Montaditos and many more. The idea is to offer an added value proposition, which makes us think of loyalty cards that we can add to Samsung Pay.

In addition, they have also communicated that Samsung Pay technology can be used to make payments online, making things easier when we do not have our card nearby or other payment methods such as Paypal are available.
