Samsung Pay FAQs

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions about Samsung Pay

Samsung Pay is a mobile payment and digital wallet service that allows users to make payments using a mobile device in place of a physical credit or debit card. The service keeps member payment information private from the merchant and creates a unique “token” for each transaction.

What devices can I use with Samsung Pay?

You can use Samsung Pay with your Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 active, Galaxy S7 edge, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 active, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 edge+.

How do I use Samsung Pay?

  1. Look for the contactless payment symbol.
  2. Swipe from the bottom of the screen to the top to launch the app.

  4. Place your finger on the Home key to verify your identity. If you are using your Samsung Pay PIN, touch PIN and enter your four-digit code.
