Samsung Electronics has developed a new method for users of its Samsung Pay mobile payment service to verify bigger payments, like those over $100 or  $200, without touching a point-of-sale terminal.

Instead, Samsung said in a statement on Tuesday, users could verify such purchases from their mobile devices using a fingerprint, PIN or iris.

The new method has been christened Consumer Device Cardholder Verification Method and is claimed to make the process faster and more hygienic.

This solution is available to Visa, MasterCard and American Express card holders.

The company claimed the feature had been developed after an increase of 35% in monthly transactions and 16% growth of monthly active users this year.

No base figures were provided to indicate from what number these increases had taken place.

“The launch of Samsung’s new CDCVM solution is the result of our ongoing investment in offering our Australian customers with the best possible digital wallet experience,” said Mark Hodgson, head of Services at Samsung Australia.

“CDCVM provides users with a payment experience which is both convenient and secure, and faster at the checkout.”

Axel Boye-Moller, Visa’s head of Product for Australia, New Zealand and South Pacific, said: “As more Australians tap their phones and watches to pay, Visa works to ensure these technologies not only meet, but exceed, expectations of security and convenience.

"Partnering with Samsung Pay to enable CDCVM is another way we’re delivering on this promise, making for a richer, more relevant consumer experience."

This has led many enterprises to build passive networks, which are inferior in quality and ultimately limit their future growth.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?

Read more about these two solutions, and how PacketLight fits into all this.
