Even more payment cards in your wallet, now one from Samsung.
Debit cards, here in the Netherlands we are not so busy with these kinds of things. We usually have a bank card and at most a credit card. How different this is in the United States. They love payment cards in any form there. Not only banks offer payment methods, but also tech companies. You have the Apple credit card in America and now Samsung comes with a competitive card.
Sang Ahn, president of Samsung Pay in North America, has announced that it will launch its own card. The Samsung payment card was developed in collaboration with the financial company SoFi. For now it remains only an announcement. The South Korean tech company says it will come up with more details at a later stage.
The arrival of a debit card is a logical extension for Samsung. After all, they had Samsung Pay, which is very similar to Apple Pay . Samsung’s goal is to “make life easier,” Ahn said in the blog post . Or do all those payment methods indeed make it easier?
Samsung and Apple are not the only ones with a debit card. For example, Google would also be busy developing its own payment card. Those Americans are getting busy with it. A bulging wallet full of payment or credit cards.
