London, 7th August 2018 – Cornercard UK, the United Kingdom’s leading business-to-business prepaid card specialists, today announces its partnership with Samsung Pay, the mobile payment and digital wallet service.
In response to demand from consumers for contactless payment solutions that are fast, convenient and secure, Cornercard UK is now available within Samsung Pay1, increasing its provision of a seamless, convenient payment experience. The integration of Samsung Pay sees Cornercard UK expand its pre-existing contactless functionality by allowing customers to use their compatible Samsung device to purchase goods and services securely.
Samsung Pay is easy to set up and users will continue to receive all the rewards and benefits offered by Cornercard UK.
Samsung’s industry-leading Knox security platform is built into the hardware and software of your device, which ensures mobile information and data is secure. Each transaction uses an encrypted digital token to replace sensitive card data, and every transaction is authorised by a fingertip scan, six-digit code, or an iris scan2.
"The launch of Samsung Pay offers our customers an easy and secure payment solution across more devices, simplifying everyday life," says Chris Adams, CEO of Cornercard UK. “We’re delighted to be able to offer these digital wallet services as part of our service and commitment to addressing the needs of our customers.”
