Since the launch, Samsung has added support to local banks one at a time, and most recently, Samsung has added support for HSBC credit cards to their payment services.
Unlike regular payment services, through Samsung Pay, it supports a number of existing payment terminals - making the various stores in Malaysia receiving payments through Samsung Pay without any problems.
With the addition of HSBC, it now leads to a total of 8 banks supported through Samsung Pay - including CIMB Bank, Citi, Hong Leong, Maybank, Public Bank, RHB and Standard Chartered.
Currently, only HSBC credit cards are supported, and we may see support for HSBC debit cards introduced in the future.
