Samsung Pay gives you the option to manage your favourite cards in a quick and easy way. You will be able to access your cards from the lock or home screens, or even when your screen is off, all without the need to carry a physical card with you thanks to its pay tab feature.

Samsung Pay allows you to add or remove favourite cards, quickly access them, or change the order of these cards. To do this, just follow these steps:

By default, all your registered credit and debit cards are added as Pay Tab cards. But you can add or remove your preferred cards at any time. To do this, follow these steps:

1 Open Samsung Pay and then tap the 3 lines menu icon at the top left side of the screen.
2 Click the cogwheel icon (settings).
3 Tap "Select Pay tab cards".
4 Select or deselect the cards you want to set as Pay tab cards.

Please note: You can set up to 12 cards as Pay tab cards.

To quickly access to your payment cards, simply swipe up from the bottom of the screen to pull up your Pay tab cards. They can be accessed from the Lock screen, Home screen, or when your screen is off.

To customize the different Pay tab cards locations, follow these steps:

1 Run your Samsung Pay and tap the three lines icon (menu).
2 Tap the cogwheel icon (settings) and then select the “Quick Access and default card” option.
3 Tap the switch next to your desired locations to turn on or off the quick access for that screen.

To make things even easier, you can change the order of your Pay tab cards. To do this, just follow these steps:

1 Swipe up from the bottom of the screen to pull up the Pay tab cards.
2 Touch and hold a card, and then drag it to your desired location. The cards will automatically swap positions. The last card you used will automatically appear when you access this tab, regardless of the card order.
