Samsung has an app that makes your mobile a contactless payment terminal. The vast majority of phones and banks are now supporting contactless payments, but many tiny traders still accept money only to the annoyance of many. However, with cheap accessories such as the Square reader, this is beginning to change, and now Samsung is offering an app that removes even that accessory, using the built-in NFC in your Samsung phone.
Samsung Pay Touch is a secure, convenient and cost-effective point-of-sale solution that enables companies to accept payments anytime and anywhere. Simply download the Samsung Pay Touch app, complete the registration information and ready to accept contactless payments from supported credit and debit cards without using dongles or any additional hardware within minutes.
The service has no monthly fees, account set-up costs and a low per-transaction rate for debit cards as low as $0.10, with no hidden or recurrent fees. It uses the security feature of Samsung’s Knox and is supported by the Samsung Galaxy S8, S8+, Note8, S9, S9+, Note9, S10, S10e, S10+ and now appears to be available only in Canada. Both Mastercard and Visa are accepted, with the main limitation of each transaction probably being the $100 cap.
