Samsung Poland has suspended work on Samsung Pay service. It looks like we will not be able to get to it quickly.
In Poland last year launched Android Pay – a service that allows customers of selected banks to pay for purchases with smartphones running Android. Google has seen the potential in our country – Poland has become the second European country in which Mountain View has decided to introduce a payment service. Similar potential has long since also seen Samsung. Olaf Krynicki, spokesman for Samsung Polska, said that for various reasons, the company has suspended the launch of the service in Poland , but the prolonged work on the service has not come to an end . At the same time did not exclude the possibility of resuming work at a later date.In April 2016 the head of First Data suggested that our country has a good chance of getting Samsung Pay. The company was in talks with Samsung's local branch, which resulted in the preparation of the concept that the service would be implemented. The first talks with banks that could take part in the project were also held. Although the service was scheduled to start in 2016, it looks like we have to be patient. When can you expect it to be introduced? It is certainly not too soon – it is possible that by this time we will be considering the choice of a new, better technology to facilitate the payment for purchases. Why was the service important and why is not Android Pay a good alternative? The service offered by Google allows payment exclusively using NFC technology, which at the outset eliminates many devices from using it. The positive aspect is that having a phone with the right technology thanks to Android Pay for purchases we will pay almost across the country, because the vast majority of terminals are tailored to service the service.
