If you are in Canada and are waiting for Samsung Pay to launch in your country, here's some good news: the South Korean company's mobile payments service will be available in Canada in the first week of November.
This was revealed by a Samsung customer service representative in response to a user query on Twitter. The rep also revealed that initially, Samsung Pay will be launched with CIBC VISA cards in the country.
It's worth mentioning that Samsung has already confirmed that Samsung Pay will be launched in Canada sometime this year, so the early November time-frame revealed by the rep should not come as a surprise.
