Samsung Pay to reportedly add support for online payments in the U.S. in 2016

It looks like Samsung Pay is set to add support for online shopping at some point in 2016 in the U.S., according to a new report. The report hails from Reuters, which says that Samsung's mobile payments effort will begin accepting online payments for U.S. users in 2016, bringing it further in-line with competitors like Android Pay and Apple Pay. It's unclear if support would be limited to in-app payments or if Samsung is planning something more expansive.

In addition to online payment support, the report also mentions that Samsung Pay will be coming to lower-priced Samsung phones "within the next year," according to a statement by Samsung's global co-general manager of Samsung Pay, Thomas Ko.
