Bank of Sydney announced that it has launched Samsung Pay for its customers. This new application allows the Bank’s Visa Debit card and Credit Card’s holders to pay virtually anywhere * in a matter of seconds using their compatible Samsung smartphone or smartwatch.

Security and privacy is at the core of Samsung Pay. Samsung Pay uses several layers of security to protect user’s payment information. For added security, users verify either using their fingerprint, Iris Scanner (only compatible with Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+) or a 4-digit PIN when making purchases. With a simple and intuitive user interface, payments can be made quickly and with ease by pressing and holding the top button and holding it against the payment terminal**.

Miltos Michaelas, CEO of Bank of Sydney, said, “After Apple Pay, we’re proud to offer our customers Samsung Pay to provide them the best possible experience. With the mobile increasingly being used for payments and banking in general, we strive to progress in line with the digital development’s direction adding ease and convenience to our offerings.”

“Samsung Pay gives our customers the option to use their Bank of Sydney Credit and debit cards to pay for purchases whenever, wherever, with their Samsung devices.”

After a user’s card is added to Samsung Pay and verified, it can be used immediately to make a purchase. Also, users can register up to 10 payment cards into Samsung Pay. So, if you are tired of carrying around a wallet full of cards, visit Samsung.com/au/apps/samsungpay and get started.
