Samsung continues to expand its mobile payments service to more markets across the globe. The company has confirmed today that Samsung Pay has now been launched in Mexico. Samsung Pay has been rolled out in quite a few markets over the past year so the company is following through on its promise to aggressively expand its mobile payments service in 2017 across different regions.
Samsung Pay is now available for those who own a supported Samsung handset in Mexico. The country happens to be the 20th market for Samsung Pay.
Samsung Pay is a bit different from other mobile payment services. It has support for both NFC and MST technologies. That enables merchants to accept Samsung Pay even if they don’t have NFC terminals. They can just use their conventional credit card machines to process Samsung Pay transactions.
The service is supported by quite a few Samsung handsets, including the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8. The Note 5, Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S7 series, as well as several mid-range handsets, are also supported. Samsung Pay does not work on Gear smartwatches in Mexico just yet.
