Plus, for every Mastercard transaction made using Samsung Pay, Mastercard will donate five school meals to one of the world’s hungriest children through its partnership with the World Food Programme.

Simple and secure, Samsung Pay enables users to make faster and smarter purchases directly via a number of Samsung devices.³ Additionally, Galaxy S9, S9+, Note8, S8 and S8+ users can take advantage of the innovative iris scanner technology to authorise payments, providing a new level of biometric security to ensure peace of mind.

Samsung Pay allows consumers to pay almost anywhere wherever contactless payments are accepted in the UK. Mastercard contactless payments are accepted in 96 countries and more than six million locations worldwide.s3-news-tmp-103031-costa-1-736x414--2x1--736

Samsung Pay has also worked with TfL on exclusive functionality that allows users to set a payment card up as a ‘transport card’ to use on all TfL services and most National Rail services in London, allowing them to simply tap their phone against the card reader, eliminating the need to wake their phone or verify with a fingerprint or passcode.
