As part of its larger rivalry with Apple, Samsung has released a new ad for Samsung Pay, this time featuring comedian Hannibal Buress. Like with their previous ads, Samsung directly shows that advantage of Samsung Pay with it working in many more places than Apple Pay.
Samsung clearly has the advantage in places where their mobile payments works because of the MST technology that they got when they acquired LoopPay last year. For those who don’t remember, MST mimics the same technology found in the older swipe-based cards, which nearly all machines work with in the US. Do you use Samsung Pay on your supported device?
