S. Korea’s top theater chain starts accepting Samsung Pay

December 6, 2017

SEOUL, Dec. 4 (Yonhap) — Samsung Electronics Co. said users of its mobile transaction system, Samsung Pay, are able to make payments at the country’s top theater chain CJ CGV as of Monday.

While CJ CGV theaters accepted Samsung Pay in 2015 after the service was first launched, the two companies later suspended cooperation due to issues over discounts and points.

An official from Samsung Electronics said through the agreement Samsung Pay can be used nearly everywhere in South Korea except at some gas stations, express bus services and vending machines.

Payments through Samsung Pay at CJ CGV theaters are currently available only through offline purchases, but Samsung said the two are engaged in talks to use the system for online transactions as well.

The combined payments made through Samsung Pay have come to 10 trillion won (US$9.1 billion) since its release as of August this year, with the number of active monthly users here estimated at 6.44 million.

The service supports not only near field communication technology like its rivals but also magnetic secure transmission that works on traditional credit card machines.

    In the course of recent years, this installment stage has stretched out its limbs to banks, strip malls, and different various money related establishments crosswise over Asia, North America, South America, Europe and the Middle East. Starting at now, there are around 6.44 million dynamic Samsung Pay clients while installments made through this framework hit 10 million won as of late.
