Samsung Pay App updated with UPI Payment System Support in India



Samsung Pay official

Samsung launched their payment service Samsung Pay in India last month. Since then it has been reported a lot of users have been using the service on their supported devices. At the time of the launch, the app also had support for PayTM wallet which is one of the popular mobile wallets in India. However, during the launch, the company officials had reported that the support for UPI payments will be added in future. And now after the service is now live and the Samsung Pay app in India now supports UPI payments.

Unified Payments Interface (UPI) is a national service which allows users to transfer funds between various different banks in India. The service only requires the users to have a telephone number registered with their banks. This is the main feature which makes this service, one of the most accessible in the country. And now with this new integration, users will be able to initiate these fund transfers from within the Samsung Pay App.

If you are a Samsung Pay user, then you must have received a new update for the app which will add the UPI service. If not, then you should be getting the update soon. Once the update will be available, you will get a notification once you open the app, so be on a lookout for that. With that said, let us know if you use Samsung Pay if you have a supported device. And also be sure to stay tuned to PhoneRadar for more info like this.

Earlier – Samsung officially launched its Payment service in India. Recently the company was also accepting customers through its Early Access Program. Now the company’s Payment service will be available on Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge+, Galaxy A5(2016) and Galaxy A7(2016) smartphones. Right now Samsung Pay supports Axis bank, HDFC bank, ICICI bank, SBI Cards and Standard Chartered Bank. It also supports payment through PayTM wallet. To access Samsung Pay, you need to visit the Samsung website and register there as Early Access Program. The Samsung Pay app size is 81MB and allows you to register with email ID. It will ask you to enter PIN and Fingerprint for security purpose.

After the Demonetization effect, India is getting digitized, and according to few reports, the South Korean Giant, Samsung is planning to launch its Samsung Pay service in India and is also expected to be launched by the first half of 2017. It is also expected that Samsung will be partnering with Visa and MasterCard in the coming days which it has already done in other major markets.

As we know, Android Nougat update is rolled out for many of the Samsung devices in India which brings the Samsung Pay app in India. From the update, all the devices where Samsung Pay app was not available, is made available now and it also shows a pop-up quoting that “The future of payments is coming soon!”

Samsung has begun testing its service in India a few weeks back and the new Nougat update bringing the Samsung Pay app ensures about its intentions. This service could be limited only high-end Samsung Smartphone’s those support Android Nougat. And according to a market research, Samsung has sold more than 2.5 Million Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge+, Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge and Galaxy Note 5 which support Samsung Pay in India.

Because of Demonetisation effects, we can expect this move from Samsung can be successful since we have seen a massive increase in the users of mobile wallets for secured transactions. We have also seen Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google discussing his plan to bring a mobile payment solution for Android users in the India but didn’t mention any date of launching.

This Samsung Pay mobile payment has also been positioned as the central database which will be storing multiple cards from different banks which also includes Samsung’s reward cards. This will serve as a fast getaway for online transactions just with a tap or code. We should wait for few more days for Samsung to give an official word on this?

Which smartphone do you use? Will you switch to Samsung device if Samsung Pay launches in India?.Do comment in the section below and Stay tuned to PhoneRadar for more news.
