Samsung Pay FAQs

  • What is Samsung Pay?

    Samsung Pay is a safe and simple way to make mobile payments with select Samsung Galaxy devices, and it works at almost any retailer where you can swipe or tap your card.

  • How does Samsung Pay work?

    Samsung Pay uses proprietary technology that works with both Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST) and Near-Field Communication (NFC) to make contactless mobile payments. MST and NFC enable you to make secure transactions at virtually every card reader where you can swipe or tap your card.

  • Where can I use Samsung Pay?

    Samsung Pay works almost anywhere you can swipe or tap your card.

In situations where you have to dip your card or in places where you don't swipe your card yourself (e.g., sit-down restaurants, hotels, auto shops), it's better to use your actual card. Samsung Pay doesn't currently work at gas station pumps with dip readers, but it will work at most gas station cashier card readers.
