By the end of the summer Samsung expects to launch Samsung Pay service in the United States and South Korea. Today, the Korean manufacturer has announced partnership with MasterCard, which will help her to bring Samsung Pay and the European market.
When testing by Samsung Samsung Pay encountered unexpected problems with compatibility with old service CAT-terminals. And the company expects that the partnership with MasterCard will help get rid of these problems through the use of the platform MDES.
The issuers of MasterCard cards will be able to connect to the platform MasterCard Digital Enablement Service (MDES) and enable support for Samsung Pay after the launch of the service, so that they will be able to use the flagship smartphone Samsung to pay for everyday purchases.
