Seeking to increase its presence in the contactless payment market, Samsung has constantly announced new partners compatible with the Samsung Pay virtual wallet, among which we can mention as of recent examples the plastics issued by BV, Sicredi, Itaú, and Trigg.
Continuing this expansion, the manufacturer announced today that Samsung Pay will also accept the connection to the cards of Carrefour Soluções Financeiras, the banking arm of the market of the same name.
According to Samsung, consumers will be able to benefit from the virtual wallet in all shops, apps, and stores that are eligible to receive contactless payment, which obviously includes Carrefour units across the country.
For Paulo César do Nascimento, Senior Manager of Samsung Pay in Brazil, the partnership reinforces the commitment to simplify the lives of its users.
“The partnership with Carrefour Financial Solutions reinforces our commitment to the Brazilian consumer. Samsung Pay is more and more present in the routine of people, who can make their purchases in a simple and safe way “
For Carlos Mauad, CEO of Carrefour Soluções Financeiras, being a partner of Samsung Pay reinforces the strategy of the institution to put the customer in the spotlight.
“Having a partner like Samsung Pay reinforces the strategy of always putting customers at the center, providing another way to make payments with the Carrefour Mastercard Card, inside our stores or in any establishment that is authorized to make payments by approach”
Therefore, if you already have a Carrefour MasterCard credit card, you can already link it to Samsung Pay and benefit from this convenience.
