Samsung Pay’s Plan to Aid Card Firms with Marketing

Published

on


Samsung Wallet is comparable to Apple Pay and Google Pay due to its integrated contactless payments, coupons, and ID. It is a platform for Samsung smartphones and wearables that enables you to pay for products and services without cash or credit cards by tapping your Samsung device close to a contactless payment terminal or by approving an online payment. With Samsung Pay, every transaction is protected by your bank’s fraud prevention and authenticated by fingerprint, pin number, or iris scan. More than 16 million users access Samsung Pay and also work with credit card readers that are not NFC.

On Tuesday, it was reported by a number of sources in the credit card business that Samsung Electronics was reviewing a marketing plan that would refund a portion of the fees it charges credit card issuers. The company that created the online mobile wallet platform Samsung Pay, Samsung Electronics Co., is considering a complementary business model whereby it charges credit card firms for using Samsung Pay.

“An intensifying competition against its emerging rival Apple Inc. has forced Samsung Electronics to charge credit companies fees,” said an unnamed official from a credit issuer. “Samsung Electronics, however, is mulling taking an approach that strengthens its partnerships with credit lenders, which have suffered financial difficulties.”

Although the price amounts have not yet been determined, industry sources predicted that Samsung Electronics would adopt a variable pricing strategy that would depend on cost reduction on variables like the market share of a certain credit card issuer or the number of card payments. For instance, if Samsung Pay levied a 0.15 percent fee for every transaction, then credit card firms would be required to pay an annual fee of 70 billion won. The charging process will be based on the result of the action.

The study says that as of March 2024, 3.45 billion internet users use Google Chrome, which is about 63.87% of the global browser market. Maybe the free-of-charge is the key reason behind this. And now, to expand its versatility, Google has launched a paid version of Chrome called ‘Chrome Enterprise Premium.’ 

Chrome is a browser developed by the brand and is one of the most familiar pieces of software in its category, as well as one of the most preferred. All credit goes to its several features that suit the convenience of the users. The company consistently strives to improve the browsing experience through constant enhancements. Recently, Google has introduced the possibility of forcing dark mode on all sites, as both a function capable of bringing order to the multiple tabs open in the browser is arriving, or even as soon as the Incognito Mode of the software will surely protect the privacy of users. 

Now, Google is introducing a subscription plan, as it offers a business-oriented version of Google Chrome named Chrome Enterprise Premium. However, at the moment, the giants have not revealed detailed plan information or what features the premium version offers. 

Google has therefore decided to debut a new version of the paid Chrome browser, dedicated to business users. Chrome Enterprise now boasts two options, which are as follows: 

  • The Core Plan (free) 
  • The Premium Plan (paid) 

The brand’s ‘new browser can offer an extra layer of data protection to users while they are online, using tools such as automatic updates to protect against newly emerged vulnerabilities and personalized site permissions across all managed devices. But not only that, the new version of Chrome is specially introduced to block suspicious add-ons to better prevent any type of hacker attack. Both versions of Chrome Enterprise differ in some features; however, the Core version also represents a more than valid solution. The recently introduced Premium subscription plan can offer additional features such as: 

  • Deep malware scan 
  • Power to filter URLs based on website category 
  • Data loss prevention 
  • Context-aware access for Saas, Google Cloud, and private web apps through Chrome.

VPN by Google One will no longer be available as Google decided to shut down this service sometime later this year. 

Google informed Google One users through an email that it was shutting down the VPN Google One service. However, in the mail, the exact date to shut down the service is not mentioned; instead, it is just mentioned that the benefit will be phased out “later this year.” 

Google One VPN stands for Virtual Private Network. Until now, it has been a part of the Google One subscription service and is available on Android, iOS, Mac, and Windows. It just encrypts the web traffic and protects privacy online. Google One introduced this VPN as an optional service to other well-known virtual private networks, such as Nord VPN and Express VPN. 

Google made the VPN available on all Google One plans, even the cheapest $1.99 per month one. In an email, Google stated that it’s phasing out VPNs through Google One to make way for more in-demand features and benefits. Apart from all this, Google also confirmed that it is shutting down the VPN feature, and the aim behind this is that ‘people simply were not using it.’ 

However, Pixel users will still be able to access Google’s VPN through Pixel settings if they have a Pixel 7 or upper model, as Google confirmed. Also, free shipping for select print orders from Google Photos in Canada, the UK, the US, and the EU starts on May 15.
