Checking in on other mobile payment service developments of note:  In a recent article on Investors Business Daily (investors.com), Samsung's new mobile payments system could spur greater adoption of mobile payments than what rivals Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) and Google (NASDAQ: GOOGL) have been able to achieve thus far, Moody's Investors Service said Monday.

Samsung is launching its e-wallet service, Samsung Pay, on Thursday in its home market of South Korea. It will debut in the U.S. on Sept. 28. It also plans to roll out the service in the U.K., Spain and China.

Apple Pay is a mobile payment and digital wallet service by Apple Inc. that lets users make payments using the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, Apple Watch-compatible devices (iPhone 5 and later models), iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3.

Google Wallet now with Android Pay - is an easier way to pay in stores, pay your friends and pay online. - Speed through checkout with Tap and Pay on your Android device- Android Pay is way to pay from your phone. No need for credit cards; just tap your handset against any supported card terminal.

Shell recently enabled a new pay at the pump system in the UK in partnership with PayPal (NASDAQ: PYPL). Unlike older systems that integrate a card payment terminal, the Fill Up & Go system lets you use PayPal to complete the transaction through your smartphone.  Shell told us that the aim was to speed up the refuelling experience, meaning that you don't have to go to the counter to pay and queue behind those doing their shopping. The advantage of using an app over a card terminal on the pump is that there's no need for major hardware changes.  Source: Pocket-lint.com
