Samsung introduces payment system on Smart TVs

Samsung has announced that it plans to introduce a payment system which users can directly process through their Smart TV. It has even tied up with PayPal and introduced a secure encrypted keyboard to ensure that hackers don’t take away your payment details by getting into your TV.

The TV payment system will only work on Samsung Smart TV and will initially launch in 32 markets. Although Smart TVs have been in the market for almost a decade, premium content was made available only to users with subscriptions, which one had to process using a browser on a desktop, laptop or a mobile device.

The current mechanism will enable a user to directly make the payment on their Smart TVS and as Samsung says in three simple steps. Samsung in its announcement said the payment service was designed from scratch and supports major credit cards, debit cards, PayPal as well as other mobile billing options.

“The beauty of it is that in most cases, users can complete a payment in just three steps after the initial registration setup. The company also said that it has developed Samsung’s Secure Keyboard – the world’s first secure virtual keyboard and input mechanism on a TV – to enter credit/debit card information or PayPal password.

Users can also transfer the account details and cards registered on their Samsung mobile device to the Samsung Smart TV.
