NAB adds Samsung Pay

NAB adds Samsung Pay

The major bank’s customers can now use Samsung Pay to conveniently make contactless payments.

NAB executive general manager of consumer lending Angus Gilfillan said Samsung Pay complements the bank’s mobile payments service, NAB Pay, which customers can already use on compatible Samsung and other Android devices.

“We are continuing to invest in giving our customers the best digital payments experience,” Mr Gilfillan said.

“We know Australians increasingly want to pay for their purchases quickly and conveniently. The growth in ‘tap and pay’, and take up of NAB Pay since we launched it two years ago, has been remarkable.

“By adding Samsung Pay, we’re giving our customers more choice in digital wallets.”

NAB customers can also use Samsung, Fitbit and Garmin smartwatches to make contactless payments, and NAB will also be adding Google Pay to its suite of mobile payment services.

“We see the highest number of NAB Pay transactions being made at supermarkets, restaurants and at takeaway venues – which is exactly when you want to be able to make quick and easy payments,” Mr Gilfillan said.

Samsung Electronics Australia head of products and services Mark Hodgson said Samsung is thrilled to be able to provide the Samsung Pay experience to even more Australians.

“Our partnership with NAB builds on our commitment to providing a simple and secure digital wallet experience to every Australian using a Samsung smartphone or wearable. We believe our collaboration with partners like NAB will help further enhance our mobile experience, and we look forward to evolving the portfolio further over the upcoming year,” he said.

NAB also announced last year that it is working with the Commonwealth Bank of Australia and Westpac to build Beem, a free app enabling anyone to make an instant payment using their smartphone, and to request payment from someone who owes them money or to split a bill.

“We are continually looking at all options to provide our customers with access to safe and secure ways to make digital payments,” Mr Gilfillan said.

“From our own mobile banking app and NAB Pay, to a range of other payment platforms and services, we’re investing in solutions to help our customers use and manage their money. We’re very pleased to be launching Samsung Pay to our customers now.”
