After a year in Australia, ANZ Visa debit customers with a Galaxy S8, S8+ phone (or the Gear S3 smartwatch) can now use Samsung Pay. And there's a whole lot of other new banks and credit unions that can finally use the service, too.

"ANZ customers can now benefit from Samsung Pay's unique features, such as our three-layered security system, and can enjoy using the service anywhere you can pay with a contactless credit or debit card," said Richard Fink, Vice President, IT & Mobile Division at Samsung Electronics Australia.

The addition of ANZ brings the number of payment card brands compatible with Samsung Pay up to 40, with over 870 global banks.

Cuscal also announced it is now one of the the Australian partners for Samsung Pay, along with Westpac, Citibank and American Express.
