The best smart TVs in the world are getting a new on-demand feature today. Samsung has announced that its entertainment systems will now feature a new iteration of its e-payment system. The new service, dubbed ‘Samsung Pay on TV’, has been designed from scratch according to the tech firm to provide an easy and safe payment experience specifically meant for the TV.
The service has been launched after several months of speculation and will only be available on select 2014 and 2015 Samsung smart TV models and only in 32 countries, so don’t get overexcited just yet. Check if your smart TV is on the list first!
The payment system is a very simple 3-step service after you have successfully registered to it. You could either set it up with a credit/debit card or integrate it with a PayPal account, whatever is more convenient to you.
After that, it’s only a matter of choosing the item you want to purchase (you have a wide range of choices ranging from apps, in-app purchases, books and movies, and many other goodies), click on the ‘Pay Now’ button, and then enter your 4-digit PIN (Personal Identification Number) using Sammy boy’s latest virtual keyboard for smart TVs. And voila, your payment will be taken care of.
Another noteworthy fact about the service is that if you have an existing Samsung Pay account on any of your mobile devices, you can easily add this to your smart TV without any additional registration steps.
