Verizon Wireless today took the time to tout the benefits of Android Pay, the new mobile payment app and service from Google. Android Pay is a relaunch of Softcard, which Google bought from Verizon (and AT&T/T-Mobile) earlier this year. Verizon subscribers who own NFC-equipped Android handsets can download the Android Pay app from the Google Play Store, associate their debit/credit card, and make payments at a number of participating retailers, such as Macy's and Jamba Juice. Verizon said it is still evaluating whether or not it will support Samsung's mobile payment service, called Samsung Pay. Verizon already supports Apple Pay on the iPhone.

I just Don't Understand?

Samsung has the app already on their latest phones, and either was pushed or could be installed on the SGS6(edge), The nfc is open, Samung could sign up deal with the bankS and creditcard companies without permission of the carriers. Chase and others have similar but less able apps and work and can be downloaded.

Samsung has its own app store, and I'm sure previous models can download it, if its available.
