A statement from Finablr said Samsung Pay users in the US could use existing eligible pre-registered debit or credit cards to send money in most major currencies via Finablr global network.
Money Transfer is powered by Travelex, a foreign exchange firm in the Finablr group, and will show users the fees and exchange rates associated with a transfer before the money is sent.
"Finablr’s network of trusted brands, including Travelex, with its 40 years of experience in cross-border payments, and licensed by over 100 regulators globally, bring security, reliability and peace of mind to the Samsung Pay users of this feature, which uses tokenised credentials and is backed by Samsung Knox security," the company said.
“Money Transfer is a first step in our vision to evolve Samsung Pay into a platform that makes users’ financial lives more convenient. The range of services in Samsung Pay, developed in close collaboration with industry leaders such as Finablr, positions us to positively impact consumers’ everyday financial experiences.”
