Support for Samsung Pay, which launched in the U.S. last month, will be expanded to thirteen more U.S. banks and credit unions “in the coming months” – with the Discover card also being added at some point next year …
Samsung is expanding the partnership ecosystem for Samsung Pay, announcing support in the coming months for cards issued by Chase, PNC Bank, TD Bank, SunTrust, Fifth Third Bank, Key Bank, Silicon Valley Bank, Security Service Federal Credit Union, Navy Federal Credit Union, Virginia Credit Union, Associated Bank, Randolph Brooks Federal Credit Union and People’s United Bank. Starting next year, Samsung Pay will work with Discover.
The company had previously announced that it would also “gradually expand” compatibility beyond flagship handsets. Samsung Pay currently works only with the Galaxy S6/edge/edge+ and Note 5. Initial holdout Verizon also opened up the service to its customers a week ago.
