Samsung is all set to kick off its early access program for Samsung Pay in India. The company has teased the launch of its digital payments service last month, and a recent update to the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy A series in the country introduced the Samsung Pay app. Samsung is now taking registrations for early access to Samsung Pay in India, offering a look at the banks and phones that will be supported by the service in the country.
To be eligible to use Samsung Pay in India, you’ll need to own either a Galaxy S7, S7 edge, S6 edge+, Note 5, Galaxy A5 2016, or the Galaxy S7 2016. Samsung mentions that Visa and MasterCard are supported at launch, with American Express cards eligible to be added at a later date.
You’ll also need a credit card from either Axis Bank, HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank, SBI Cards, or Standard Chartered Bank; and a debit card from Axis Bank, HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank, or Standard Chartered Bank. Samsung is working to bring additional banks on-board, and has stated that Citibank cards will be added to the program.
