More than two years after LG launched LG Pay, its mobile payment service in South Korea, now finally arrives in the United States.
It is important to clarify that LG Pay does not work exactly like rivals such as Google Pay or Apple Pay, but actually works in a similar way to Samsung Pay, mainly with the advantage that we liked most about that service.
Like Samsung Pay, LG Pay not only works in payment terminals with NFC such as Google and Apple services, but also works in older terminals that do not have that technology, because they manage to reproduce a magnetic signal that makes us think about the terminals where you slide a common and current card.
This is important, as it means that it can be used in more places than Google Pay and Apple Pay. However, at the moment, LG Pay is being enabled only in the, although the company says to arrive "soon" to other LG phones.
LG Pay is compatible with Visa and MasterCard cards from different institutions, including Chase, US Bank, Regions Bank, among others.
The LG Pay app can now be downloaded from the Google Play Store and there you also have access to gift cards and the ability to store your frequent customer cards.
