Samsung Pay

Last week, Android Central told you, and Samsung confirmed, that it would roll out Samsung Pay in Canada during the first week of November, and it looks like the service has gone live for some early adopter CIBC customers.

Samsung Pay will exclusively be available to CIBC customers with "select" Visa cards, according to screenshots from the app. Samsung has yet to expand availability of the Samsung Pay app to Canadians — customers who have accessed this feature have sideloaded the app — but it will likely roll out shortly.

Samsung has aggressively expanded the reach of its digital payments service in recent weeks, making it available in Malaysia, Russia and Thailand. The service is now live in 12 countries, and Samsung has partnered with MasterCard to integrate Samsung Pay with its MasterPass service.

Thanks Chris!
