FAQ – Do you have any questions?

1
What is Samsung Pay?

Samsung Pay is Samsung’s mobile payment solution. It enables the user to pay in a store quickly, easily and safely with a smartphone or soon also with a Gear Watch.

How do I pay with Samsung Pay?

  • Swipe left or right to select the card with which you’d like to pay

How safe is Samsung Pay?

Samsung Pay is a very safe payment method. Here’s why:

  • The card number is never stored on the machine. Instead, each card is assigned a unique identification number. This token is encrypted and provides protection by way of a physically separate chip stored in your device (as is, for example, your fingerprint). Normal apps or malware have no access to the information on this chip.
  • When a purchase is made with Samsung Pay, the identification number is used together with a unique and dynamic security code which is newly generated by every transaction in order to process the payment. This means that your card number is never given to the retailer.
  • Every payment over Samsung Pay must be authorized by the user – either by fingerprint or with a PIN.
  • Samsung Knox monitors and protects your device from malware. If Samsung Knox discovers any malware, it will deactivate Samsung Pay.
