MyState Bank begins offering Samsung Pay

Tasmania's largest financial institution MyState Bank has started offering Samsung Pay to more than 100,000 customers.

Samsung Pay is available on compatible Samsung devices including the Gear S3 smartwatch and the Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones.

The bank said in a statement that the addition of Samsung Pay helped it to retain its position as an early adopter of payment technology.

“MyState was one of the first banks to offer customers Apple Pay and Android Pay in the second half of 2016 as part of its ongoing banking technology transformation," said Chris Thornton, MyState general manager Product and Marketing.

"The introduction of Samsung Pay is another significant milestone in MyState's strategy to use the latest online and digital technology to provide customers with an exceptional experience.

“Offering Samsung Pay means MyState customers with Samsung devices don’t have to carry their wallets or cash to make a purchase. Customers can buy what they want when they want through the convenience of their mobile device.”
