Samsung Pay will now be available on higher variants of SBI Debit Card as SBI and Samsung India have collaborated to enable SBI Debit Card holders to tap and pay using a Samsung smartphone at merchant outlets having card acceptance machines. Samsung Pay is now available on a wide range of Samsung smartphones, enabling consumers to make offline payments without the need for a physical Card. With the support of Samsung Pay, the bank expects a 10- 20 times growth in the volume of payments.

Samsung and SBI made this announcement at an event in Mumbai where SBI claimed to have 130 million customers using their debit cards, as per multiple media reports.

Samsung Pay works on 2.5 million PoS card machines across the country through its magnetic secure transmission (MST) technology.

Also, Samsung Pay consumers holding eligible SBI Debit Cards can avail Rs 100 cashback on minimum transaction amount of Rs 500.

"We are committed to increasing the share of digital initiatives in products, services and transactions".
