#SamsungPay Now Available on @TheGautrain @SamsungMobileSA #YourJourneyStartsHere

Hi Friends, 

Made for the new normal, Samsung Pay continues to grow in popularity

Over an unprecedented year, Samsung Pay has amplified its expansion of contactless payments through significant growth in South Africa. Having already reached the 3 Million transactions mark, Samsung Pay has now achieved another major milestone with its introduction on Gautrain. Commuters can now make use of the Tap & Go convenience of Samsung Pay as they travel using a Galaxy device or watch. There will be no need to preload a Gautrain card when you use the Samsung Pay system.

“This is another major milestone for Samsung Pay and for all South Africans looking for a safe and secure way to make payments on the go. The introduction of Samsung Pay aboard the Gautrain is a wonderful example of our ability to adapt and grow during this New Normal and beyond. It’s great to see Samsung leading the way at a time when there is a major focus on health and security. The convenience of the platform will have long-term benefits for the country, “Kagiso Khaole, Head of e-commerce and Services at Samsung South Africa.

Contactless payment has been prevalent and popular over the years internationally, and now we are seeing the same trend locally, with how South Africans have enthusiastically embraced Samsung Pay. Its benefits have of course come into the spotlight recently with the need for social distance, sanitise our hands and limit human contact. The system allows users to load their bank cards and store loyalty cards and adds even more convenience with the ability to use it on Gautrain with over 40 Samsung Galaxy smartphones and watches – making their journey a breeze.

As a pioneer in the category, South Africans placed their trust in the system early on. The impressive growth of Samsung Pay locally is fuelled by the need for enhanced security, simplicity and convenience. Additionally, Samsung Pay offers users monthly competitions, allowing customers to win prizes for simply paying at their favourite stores with Samsung Pay. Customers can also buy prepaid vouchers for electricity, mobile airtime/data, gaming and multimedia streaming services like Netflix, Showmax and Spotify as well as the offer of a Newsstand subscription, which provides access to thousands of magazines and newspapers for a monthly subscription of R90 per month. Samsung Pay customers gain instant access to the multitude of titles both local and international, accessible from any device with a shelf value of approximately R45 a magazine, including categories of automotive, arts, health, sport, family, financial and entertainment to mention a few.
