The all new Samsung Pay – The official mobile payment app has been officially launched in India. Samsung Pay is a secure and easy-to-use mobile payment service. You can add the credit and debit cards of participating issuers/banks on your Samsung galaxy smartphones which allow you to make purchases almost everywhere.
Samsung Pay uses patented Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST) and Near Field Communication (NFC) to make contactless mobile payments. You can make payment with equal ease at the payment terminals that are NFC enabled and activated for use.
MST (Magnetic Secure Transmission) is Samsung’s patented technology. Through MST, merchants can accept payments on regular card machines which makes Samsung Pay the most widely accepted mobile payment service.

How to Start Using
You can get early access to Samsung Pay App by registering yourself with Samsung for this program. Only Samsung Galaxy Mobile users will be allowed to register for this program.
Samsung Pay uses advanced three-level authentication feature. The First is your biometric where you can lock the App with your fingerprints. In the second level, All transactions use a random token instead of the card number, which means the actual card information isn’t shared while paying and details stay safe and the final secure level is Samsung KNOX. With Samsung KNOX, the phone is constantly monitored for vulnerabilities. Even if the phone is compromised, card information is still safely encrypted within a separate and secure data vault.
Samsung is going to feature the payment app with all new coming models. In my opinion, Samsung has done great by bringing the advanced technology of Mobile Payment App which uses the latest technology like MST (Magnetic Secure Transmission) where mobile devices securely transmits card details to EDC machine to charge the card and there is no physical card is required.
I hope you guys will love to read the above information.
