People’s Choice Credit Union members will now be able to register their People’s Choice Visa Debit and People’s Choice Visa Credit cards on Samsung Pay, as part of their digital wallet.
When using Samsung Pay on the latest Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ smartphones, People’s Choice members will be able to authenticate payments through the device’s iris scanning, allowing Samsung Pay users with a compatible device to literally pay in the blink of an eye.
People’s Choice spokesperson, Stuart Symons, said Samsung’s latest offering is at the forefront of biometrics and user-friendly technology, and will appeal to the one in three People’s Choice members estimated to use the latest Samsung Galaxy smartphones.1
“Samsung Pay lets our members make contactless payments at point of sale, online or in-app with the latest Samsung devices, including the Gear S2 and S3 wearable devices, without launching an app, and with the security of PIN or biometric authentication by fingerprint or iris,” Mr Symons said.
“Samsung Pay is about more than just payments, as members can also seamlessly digitise their loyalty and gift cards on their device for a complete digital wallet both here and overseas.
“Our members expect up-to-date technology in all aspects of their lives, including their banking. We are proud to give many of our Android-using members the choice to use and benefit from the latest banking technology available to make their day-to-day transactions more convenient and more secure.
“We have made a range of improvements to our digital banking and payments services over the past few years, and we are continuing to keep our members at the forefront of these technologies in Australia,” he said.
