PYMNTS Daily Data Dive: Android Pay, Samsung Pay Edition

There's never a shortage of news from the mobile payments players, and this week two of them made plenty of news across the ecosystem.

That's why PYMNTS' 5-in-1 Daily Data Dive brings you the latest data points you may have missed from two major players in the field: Google and Samsung.

Samsung And Alibaba Pair Up

450 Million | The estimated number of Alipay users in China. Samsung announced its plans to allow its smartphone customers to use Alipay on Samsung devices.

Android Pay's Commerce View

100+ | How many apps the average smartphone user downloads on their phone, but they only use roughly 17 of them, according to Pali Bhat, Global Head of Payment Products at Google.

Samsung Pay's Loyalty Play

30 | The average number of loyalty cards in use per American household. Samsung announced that Samsung Pay users in the U.S. will now be able to access merchant loyalty and rewards programs within the app on their Galaxy smartphones.

Android Pay's API Expansion

10 | The number of lines of code (or less) that Google claims it takes developers to integrate Android Pay into new payments processors. Google announced it's working to make it easier for the developer community to integrate Android Pay with its APIs.

Android Pay Goes Across The Pond

8 | The number of banks in the U.K. that supported Android Pay on its launch day this week. The eligible cards are either a MasterCard or Visa credit or debit card from one of its supported banks.



Banks, corporates and even regulators now recognize the imperative to modernize — not just digitize —the infrastructures and workflows that move money and data between businesses domestically and cross-border.

Together with Visa, PYMNTS invites you to a month-long series of livestreamed programs on these issues as they reshape B2B payments. Masters of modernization share insights and answer questions during a mix of intimate fireside chats and vibrant virtual roundtables.
