Android Pay vs. Samsung Pay: Explained

Mobile
[MUSIC] The first mobile payment system for Android was Google Wallet, and it never quite caught on. But it did teach us a few things about what makes a mobile payments platform successful. It needs support from the carriers. It also needs credit card issuers on board like Visa, banks, and a solid security system. And most importantly, you need places that actually accept mobile payments. [MUSIC] Now two payment platforms are joining Apple in the race to digitize your wallet. [INAUDIBLE] Android pay and Samsung pay. In practice, Android pay and Samsung are a lot alike. Tap the phone on the terminal, scan your fingerprint or enter a pin, and you're set. Thank you. Both platforms use tokenization, which means that an alias is used in place of your real credit card number during the transaction. That's a win for everyone because if there is ever a data breach it means that your real credit card number will never be revealed to hackers. But here is where Samsung pay wins. For starters thanks to something called Magnetic Secure Transmission you can use it with old school credit card terminals that don't have built in NFC. With the exception of push-pull credit card swipes like the ones you see at gas stations. It pretty much works everywhere, and even those transactions use tokenization, so it's infinitely more secure than using a plastic credit card. Android pay has it's own strengths, first of all, it works on all NFC enabled Android phones running Kitkat or Marshmallow. Samsung Pay, on the other hand, it only works on Samsung phones released in 2015, but not all banks and credit card issuers support mobile payments. So, in the end, the better platform might just be the one you can actually use. [MUSIC]
