Samsung has a reason to celebrate today as its continued growth and enthusiasm for Samsung Pay across the globe has expanded to four markets over two days.

Samsung Pay officially launches in Sweden and the UAE, and enters an early access phase in Hong Kong and Switzerland.

With these market expansions, Samsung Pay continues on the path of bringing mobile payments to new regions and expanding to new markets in places where the service is currently available.

These two separate launches showcase Samsung Pay’s first markets in the Middle East and Scandinavia respectively, while Hong Kong and Switzerland demonstrate continued commitment and strength in Asia and Europe.

“Less than two years ago, Samsung Pay came to life in Korea with a simple mission: To empower customers with mobile payments that are simple, secure and available almost anywhere,” said Thomas Ko, VP and Global General Manager of Samsung Pay. “Today, Samsung Pay is so much more. Our launches in different parts of the world demonstrate governments’ and consumers’ changing attitudes towards progressing to a cashless society. It is through the interest and support of our partners that we are able to answer their needs by offering Samsung Pay in these markets. We are incredibly proud of our rapid expansion and growth in such a short period of time, and look forward to bringing the most comprehensive digital wallet to all our users around the world.”
