How does Samsung Pay work with payment terminals that do not have NFC?
Samsung Pay uses two technologies to make a payment: Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST) and Near Field Communication (NFC). If NFC is not present on the payment terminal, you can still make a payment using MST. Using proprietary technology, the compatible Samsung device transmits the payment information to the card reader on the payment terminal, emulating swiping a physical card. Simply place the back of your device next to the payment terminal's card reader, the same location where you would traditionally swipe your card.
