Configure Samsung Pay

Samsung Pay is a mobile payment service that lets certain Samsung mobile devices make payments at retail and online checkout.

Samsung devices wirelessly communicate with point-of-sale systems using one of two technologies: Near Field Communication (NFC) or Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST) technology. If NFC is not present on the payment terminal, you can still make a payment using MST. Using this proprietary technology, the compatible Samsung device transmits the payment information to the card reader on the payment terminal, imitating a physical card swipe. You simply place the back of the device next to the payment terminal’s card reader, the same location where you would traditionally swipe a card.

Samsung Pay Supported Devices

  • Samsung Galaxy® S6
  • Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge
  • Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 5
  • Samsung Galaxy S6 Active

Where to Use Samsung Pay
Samsung Pay works at 90% of US payment terminals because it uses both NFC and MST technology.
