Set up Samsung Pay on your phone
Meet Samsung Pay, an easy way to make purchases on your phone or watch. It turns your device into a digital wallet that carries credit, debit, or gift cards. And don't worry, you can use biometric security, so no one can access your financial data.
Note: Samsung Pay is only available on select phone and watch models.
Before using Samsung Pay
Here's what you'll need before you can use Samsung Pay:
NFC or MST support on your phone or watch
A registered fingerprint or Samsung Pay PIN
To be located in the country of the participating bank, so the bank can verify your card
Set up Samsung Pay
Samsung Pay comes preloaded on available phones, but you can always reinstall it, if needed.
Once it's installed, open Samsung Pay, and then tap Get started. Enter a new PIN for Samsung Pay, and then enter it again to confirm. If it's your first time using Samsung Pay, you will be asked to add payment cards. Add your cards or tap Samsung Pay Home to skip this step for now.
Use your fingerprint or irises with Samsung Pay
To add an extra layer of security to your Samsung Pay account, you can turn on biometric security, like Fingerprint or Iris verification.
Open Samsung Pay, and then tap Menu in the upper left corner. Tap Settings, and then tap the switch next to Fingerprint or Irises. Once you have activated one, follow the on-screen instructions to set up either Fingerprint or Iris verification. If you do not have one set up, you may be required to set up a Lock screen for your phone.
Note: Iris scan is only available on certain phones.
