Samsung Pay is Here

Stateside Samsung phone users can now leave their wallets at home.
Samsung Pay, the company's mobile payments service, went live in the US on Monday. The service lets users pay for items using their phones or upcoming Gear S2 smartwatch, and it even works at older retail terminals that don't accept Apple Pay.
Samsung Pay works with Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, Note 5 and S6 Edge+ smartphones running on wireless networks from AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and US Cellular. Verizon doesn't yet support Samsung Pay, but Samsung said it's still working with the wireless carrier on preloading the service on Verizon phones. Verizon had backed a mobile payments service of its own -- initially called Isis but rebranded Softcard -- but the service was absorbed by Google Wallet/Android Pay earlier this year.
