Bank "Otkrytie" introduced the service Samsung Pay for card holders "Mir"
Bank "Otkrytie" launched a payment service Samsung Pay for card holders "Mir", the press service of the credit organization
NSPK (National Payment Card System, operator of Mir cards) is actively developing an acquiring network with support for the contactless Mir, but thanks to Samsung MST (Magnetic Secure Transmission) technology, you can now pay for your purchases almost anywhere with a Samsung phone. We are pleased to be one of the first banks to implement this technology. To date, we have issued more than 300 thousand Mir cards, and we expect that the launch of Samsung Pay will significantly increase the use of the card by our customers, ”the head of the bank's debit products development department, Dmitry Lepekhin, commented in the message. The Bank informs that Samsung Pay is accepted wherever it is possible to pay for a purchase with a Mir card. The main advantage of the service is that in addition to NFC (Near Field Communication) technology, it supports Samsung's own MST technology, which makes it possible to combine not only with contactless payment devices, but also with most payment terminals, where bank cards are accepted only by a contact chip. and magnetic stripe. Samsung Pay is available for a wide range of Samsung mobile devices and provides high security for payments. Instead of the card number, a special digital code is used - a token. Each purchase requires fingerprint or PIN authorization. The special built-in security system of the Samsung KNOX device protects Samsung Pay data regardless of the operating system. Earlier this year, this functionality became available to holders of Visa and MasterCard cards of Otkritie Bank.
