Samsung Pay went live in the United States last year and since then the company has gradually added support for more financial institutions so that its user base in the United States can grow. Following the launch of Samsung Pay in China, the company has announced that its mobile payments service is now available to customers of 16 new banks and credit unions in the country.
The banks that now support Samsung Pay include Fidelity, Old National, BHCU and the Bank of England. A handful of credit unions have joined the ranks as well, this includes the Altra Federal Credit Union, Benchmark Federal Credit Union, Star One Credit Union, Greater Texas Federal Circuit credit union and many more.
Customers of all supported banks and credit unions should keep in mind that even though Samsung Pay supports their preferred financial institution, it’s not necessary that the service supports all cards which that particular institution supports, so it’s always best to check up with your bank or credit union if you’re unsure about your card being supported.
Samsung Pay is gradually being expanded to additional markets after it was first launched in South Korea and then later in the United States last year. After its move into China, the service is set to arrive in multiple countries across Europe in the coming months.
