Samsung has launched new Samsung Pay functionality in Australia that allows consumers to validate high-value purchases without needing to touch a PIN pad

22 septembrie 2020

The new Consumer Device Cardholder Verification Method (CDCVM), which applies to purchases above $100 (or $200 with some merchants), allows customers to use their own devices to validate these purchases through PIN, iris, or fingerprint authentication, instead of having to physically enter their PIN on the point-of-sale terminal.

According to Mark Hodgson, Head of Services at Samsung Australia, CDCVM offers a faster and more hygienic way to verify high-value purchases.

“The launch of Samsung’s new CDCVM solution is the result of our ongoing investment in offering our Australian customers with the best possible digital wallet experience.

“CDCVM provides users with a payment experience which is both convenient and secure, and faster at the checkout.”

Axel Boye-Moller, Visa’s Head of Product for Australia, New Zealand and South Pacific, added that CDCVM makes for a “richer, more relevant consumer experience”.

“As more Australians tap their phones and watches to pay, Visa works to ensure these technologies not only meet, but exceed, expectations of security and convenience,” he said.

CDCVM is now available via Samsung Pay software update for Visa, MasterCard, and American Express cardholders, though users paying with a Mastercard and who loaded their card onto Samsung Pay before Tuesday 21 July will need to delete and re-load their cards in order to enable it; in addition, not all merchants currently support the technology.

Tendinţele pe care le-am remarcat înainte de începerea pandemiei s-au accelerat pe perioada stării de urgenţă. Am văzut acest lucru ca o oportunitate, un tipping point pentru bancă. Post-pandemie nu avem cum sa ne întoarcem la comportamentul financiar pe care îl aveam până în februarie a.c. Relaţia românilor cu online-ul s-a schimbat. In plus, cardul fizic se va dematerializa. Vom asista la o scădere a cererii pentru cardurile fizice, respectiv la o creştere a preferinţei pentru componenta digitală a acestora.”


In 23 septembrie 2019, BNR a anuntat infiintarea unui Fintech Innovation Hub pentru a sustine inovatia in domeniul serviciilor financiare si de plata. In acest sens, care credeti ca ar trebui sa fie urmatorul pas al bancii centrale?
