Samsung is clearly not playing games with its Samsung Pay services. The company has already launched the service in its home land, and even with a couple of hurdles, we’ve also received details on its U.S. launch. We’re still a month away from that date, but it seems Samsung wants to start now.
If you have already upgraded to a Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge+, or Galaxy Note 5 on either AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile or US Cellular, you’re entitled to beta test Samsung pay as of today. The service is currently only compatible with cards from Bank of America, Mastercard, US Bank, and Visa though, so make sure you consider this. You also need an active Samsung account to be able to sign up as a beta tester.
Samsung is set to launch Samsung Pay on September 29, so it doesn’t hurt to check if Samsung Pay is right for you.
