SCU now offering Samsung Pay

Samsung Pay is a secure and easy-to-use mobile payments service available on compatible Samsung devices including the Gear S3 smartwatch and the Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones1.

‘SCU is excited to offer Samsung Pay to members who have been anticipating a digital wallet solution that provides a more convenient way to pay using their Samsung phones’ said Ashley Jennings, SCU CEO.

Samsung Pay has been designed to be a complete wallet replacement for users - making everyday payments and loyalty point collections simple and secure for Australians.

Mobile payments are made even simpler with Samsung Pay because the technology utilises Near Field Communication (NFC) and Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST). MST technology enables Samsung Pay to support partners that use a traditional mag stripe, commonly found on loyalty cards, gift cards and transportation cards, both in Australia and across the globe.

The announcement comes as Samsung Pay marks its first anniversary in Australia. Samsung Pay has more than 870 bank partnerships worldwide and has had more than 240 million transactions processed over the past year and a half.
