Verifone (NYSE: PAY), a world leader in payments and commerce solutions, and Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd  have teamed up to accelerate  merchant adoption of Samsung Pay.  As the most widely accepted mobile payment system in the U.S., Samsung Pay (Samsung Pay Booth #605) works almost anywhere users can swipe or tap a card.

Samsung Pay uses Near-Field Communication (NFC), as well as its proprietary technology—Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST)—to deliver secure tokenized transactions for terminals that have EMV and NFC capabilities, as well as existing terminals that only accept magnetic stripe (or “swipe”) payments.

Samsung Pay is:

  • SIMPLE: To make a payment on Samsung Pay, users can simply swipe up, scan their fingerprint and pay.
  • SAFE: Samsung Pay uses tokenization, Samsung KNOX, and fingerprint authentication to provide secure payments. And, as terminals are upgraded to EMV, that security is leveraged, too.
  • ALMOST ANYWHERE: Samsung Pay is compatible with the majority of new and existing terminals, including most magnetic stripe, EMV and NFC devices. **That means Samsung Pay works at more places than any other mobile payment service.
