From time to time, Citibank has come up with convenient ways to help their credit cardholders pay their bills at ease. One such initiative is the Samsung Pay option. Using the Samsung Pay feature, Citibank credit card holders can make purchases without a tangible credit card by using their Samsung phones. This is the most simple, convenient, and secure way to pay. So, if you have a Samsung phone and have the “Samsung Pay” feature, read on to know the benefits this feature has to offer.
Samsung Pay is an inbuilt feature that is available on Samsung phones. This feature allows users to make payments using their Samsung phone. This safe, secure, and easy-to-use mobile payment service allows Citibank credit card holders to make in-store payments using their phone. Samsung could introduce such great feature using technologies like Near Field Communication (NFC) and Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST).
