We knew Samsung Pay would be a game-changer in the mobile payments industry and now with the user data, we are seeing the greater impact it is having on consumer behaviour and on the lifestyle of our customers.”

The mobile payment service will launch in the US on September 28, and will be available on Galaxy S6, S6 edge, S6 edge+ and Note5 devices.
