Make an in-store payment with Samsung Pay

Friends paying with Samsung Pay at a restaurant

You probably already have your phone in your hand when you're shopping, so why not use it to make in-store purchases? Thanks to Samsung Pay, you can add credit cards right to your phone and make purchases in stores or even in restaurants.

Note: If you have a thick phone case, it may need to be removed when making a purchase so it doesn't block the NFC signal.

Make a payment using the app

With Samsung Pay, you can purchase things without digging through your wallet.

When you're ready to pay, open Samsung Pay on your phone. Tap Pay, and select your preferred card. Tap PIN or IRIS, and then enter the required security information. Or if you have fingerprint security set up, simply place your finger on your phone's fingerprint scanner.

Next, hold the back of the phone up to the contactless reader and perform your desired actions to complete your purchase.

To make a payment with your Favorite Cards, swipe up from the bottom of the screen. Then, swipe through and select your preferred card.
