Samsung Pay’s adoption has been growing at a steady pace. Adding to its list of countries are Malaysia, Russia and Thailand that makes the service available in 10 countries by end of 2016.
Additionally, Samsung Pay will add a number of new features, notably adding support for online payment and express checkout solution, thanks to Mastercard’s Masterpass.
Starting Q1 2017, Samsung Pay will allow express checkout where users with their Mastercard debit or credit cards can save their shipping information on the Samsung Pay account and allow purchases from any device.
For users in United States, Samsung also announced support for in-app payments and nearby discounts and savings.
