Verizon was previously noncommittal about supporting Samsung's contactless payment solution, but the carrier has now confirmed on Twitter that Samsung Pay is coming. When? No one knows, but it will be delivered as part of a future software update. We all know how good Verizon is at getting software updates out in a timely fashion.
Samsung Pay will support the Verizon variants of the Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, Note 5, and S6 Edge+. Samsung Pay rolled out to those devices on other carriers at the end of September. So Verizon isn't that far behind right now, assuming Samsung has what it needs in place to add Pay support to these devices.
Samsung Pay will be supported on compatible Verizon smartphones (Galaxy S 6, S 6 edge, Note5, S6 edge +) through a future software update.

Samsung Pay lets you make payments via NFC, but it also has magnetic secure transmission (MST) technology that lets you pay at regular credit card readers. It usually works, and when it doesn't, you get to have an awkward conversation with a cashier who thinks you're dumb. So, you've got that to look forward to, Verizon customers.
