Samsung Pay has been popular - in Korea
Samsung has boasted of the success of Samsung Pay this weekend, although the service is currently only available in South Korea.

The tech giant says there have been $30 million worth of transactions done in the first month, through 1.5 million purchases. While those numbers are very small, Samsung says it's a lot higher than they expected for the first month of availability in a limited market.

36 percent of those with the app installed used it in the past month, and 10 percent used it daily.

The Galaxy Note 5 was the most used device, unsurprisingly, with 60 percent of purchases being made by Note owners. Samsung Pay comes pre-installed on the device.

For now, the Korean experiment is the first of an eventual global launch, although it is unclear what the road map and time frame are.

    That's like saying "surfing has been California"

    Of course! The Koreans backs EVERYTHING in their country...probably mindlessly too.
