MasterCard holders in Russia can now link up a selection of Samsung smartphones to Samsung Pay. The mobile payments system, which allows for NFC tap-and-go payments as well as MST cardswipe simulation payments, has expanded into its ninth global market.

Alfa-Bank Banking, VTB24, MTS Bank, Raiffeisenbank and Russian Standard Bank have all signed on as well as Yandex Money. Users of those services who have a Galaxy S6 edge+, a Note 5, a Galaxy A5 (2016) or A7 (2016) or a Galaxy S7 or S7 edge can register to get Samsung Pay.

Samsung Pay should cover 15 markets by some point in 2017, with Turkey being the latest in the list. Apple Pay should be coming this season to Russia.
