DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - August 03, 2016) - Ziosk®, maker of the world's first ordering, entertainment and pay-at-the table tablet, announced today that it is teaming up with Samsung Pay® to make paying the bill at leading casual dining restaurants quick, easy and secure. As part of the announcement, Samsung Pay is offering guests at participating Red Robin Gourmet Burgers and Brews, Friendly's and Uno Pizzeria & Grill an opportunity to save five dollars off their bill of ten dollars or more when they use Samsung Pay on the Ziosk tablet. The special limited-time savings incentive will be automatically applied to guests' bills at time of payment.
The most widely accepted mobile payment system, Samsung Pay works with the majority of existing and new terminals, including most magnetic stripe, EMV and NFC terminals. Samsung Pay is also fully compatible with existing Ziosk tablets, enabling restaurants a convenient and simple method for accepting mobile payments.
Once Samsung Pay is active on the user's device, customers simply swipe up on their mobile device to launch Samsung Pay, authorize the transaction with their fingerprint or PIN, and then hover the device over the Ziosk card reader to pay.
Actual card numbers are not stored on the user's device, Ziosk tablets nor on Samsung servers. Transaction and payment information are kept private and secure with the use of tokenization, a method of protecting payment card information by substituting the card's number with a unique alphanumeric identifier, which is generated using proprietary algorithms.
Samsung Pay is supported by leading wireless providers on the Samsung Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 edge, Galaxy S7 active, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S6 edge+, Galaxy S6 active and Galaxy Note 5. Samsung Pay is supported by over 300 major and regional banks, and credit unions in the U.S., and continues to expand its partnership ecosystem.** For more information visit: www.samsung.com/pay
