According to Samsung Customer Care, Samsung Pay will be available in Canada within days
Twitter user Saifali Maknojiya reportedly posed a question to a Samsung customer service representative through its built-in app and received a response that Samsung Pay, the company's competitor to Android Pay and Apple Pay, would launch in Canada in the first week of November.
According to the representative, the service will first launch with CIBC Visa cards. However, it is unclear when the service will expand to other banks and payment providers.
Samsung claimed earlier this year that Samsung Pay would hit Canada in 2016. It also targeted launches in the UK, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Thailand by the end of the year.
Samsung Pay currently works with Galaxy S7 edge, Galaxy S7, Galaxy S6 edge+, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S6 active, Galaxy S6, and Gear S2.
