UOB cards and EZ-Link FEVO Prepaid Mastercards are now compatible with Samsung Pay

Samsung just announced that customers with United Overseas Bank (UOB) debit and credit cards or EZ-Link FEVO Prepaid Mastercards will now be able to make purchases with Samsung Pay and a compatible Samsung smartphone.

UOB and FEVO joins Citibank, DBS/POSB, OCBC Bank, Standard Chartered, and Maybank who are all already compatible with Samsung Pay.

Samsung also announced that Citibank customers with Citi debit Mastercard cards will now also have the option to use Samsung Pay to make transactions at terminals that accept contactless payments as well as those that do not accept contactless payments.

“As part of our ongoing efforts to enhance the payment experience for our customers, we are very delighted to have UOB and EZ-Link partner with us for Samsung Pay in Singapore,” said Eugene Goh, Vice President, IT & Mobile, Samsung Electronics Singapore. “The added support for Citi debit Mastercard cards also elevates Samsung Pay’s flexibility in providing users with more choices when it comes to making mobile payments.”

Ms Jacquelyn Tan, Head of Personal Financial Services Singapore, UOB said, “We are always working on ways to make banking faster and simpler. When we introduced the UOB Mighty app in 2015, we were the first financial institution outside of the US to provide customers with the ability to make contactless payments using an Android smartphone. Since then, we have seen monthly growth of more than 20 percent for mobile contactless payments. With the addition of Samsung Pay, our customers will have another option when paying with their smartphone.”

“EZ-Link is excited to add another notable dimension to our partnership with Samsung. Now, EZ-Link FEVO card holders can enjoy a faster, easier and more secure way to pay at a large selection of retail points with Samsung Pay. We look forward to continue working with Samsung to advance Singapore’s growth potential in the cashless and contactless space,” said Nicholas Lee, Chief Executive Officer, EZ-Link Pte Ltd.
