Canadians can now sign up to use Samsung Pay with CIBC cards

Samsung and CIBC are teaming up to offer Samsung Pay to Canadians with "select" CIBC credit cards, as we previously reported.

Now, Samsung Canada has put up a landing page allowing users to sign up to receive an email to receive a link to download Samsung Pay on a compatible Galaxy device. Seems fairly convoluted, but there we go.

Says Samsung, (via SamMobile):

As a valued customer, we are excited to present you with early access to Samsung Pay. Samsung has partnered with CIBC so that our customers can make payments using a Samsung Galaxy device with select CIBC credit cards. Samsung Pay works with the latest Samsung Galaxy devices almost anywhere you can tap or swipe your card3, so you can enjoy all the convenience you need on one Samsung device.

There are a couple caveats: CIBC users can only sign up Visa cards at this point, so MasterCard fans are out of luck; and there is no compatibility with US Dollar or prepaid Visa cards.

Still interested? Already signed up? Let us know in the comments!
