Samsung-Pay--7

Samsung Pay went live in the United States on September 28 for customers on T-Mobile, Sprint, U.S. Cellular and AT&T, but Verizon failed to offer support at launch. That changes today, when Verizon customers can officially join in on the fun.

The application will hit Google Play at 12:00 p.m. Eastern, which means you’ll be able to¬†use it to pick up lunch. As with the other carriers, it supports payments at NFC and magnetic card reader terminals, which means it should be supported at most places that accept credit and debit cards in the United States. You’ll need a Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 Edge+, Galaxy S6 Edge or Galaxy S6 to use the app, however.

Neither Samsung nor Verizon disclosed why it took so long for Verizon to accept the option, but at least that’s no longer a concern.
