A new partnership for Visa Checkout and Samsung Pay
This news came on the heels of Visa and Samsung striking a deal making it possible for people in the United States using Samsung Pay to link their app with a Visa Checkout account so they can shop more easily at retailers and merchants in the Visa Checkout network.
Once the integration is complete people using Samsung devices with fingerprint authentication technology will be able to tap the Visa Checkout/Samsung Pay button and the use their fingerprint to expedite payment so that a password and username are no longer needed.
With this partnership, there is nothing new for retailers to do, it is all part of the Visa Checkout system. To get more information about Visa Checkout people can go to the website.
