Add a payment card to Samsung Pay

Guy adding card information to Samsung Pay

You don't need that bulky wallet anymore. With Samsung Pay, you can add your credit and debit cards right onto your phone. Once everything is set up, you'll be able to make purchases in-person, online, or in an app with only your phone. Soon, you'll be paying the easy way.

To use Samsung Pay on your smart watch with a non-Samsung phone, you must update to Android 6.0 or higher.

Add a payment card

Samsung has you covered, because Samsung Pay has partnered with top U.S. banks and credit card companies, like American Express, Visa, and MasterCard. Plus, we're always expanding our list of financial partners.

To get started, navigate to and open Samsung Pay on your phone. Tap Menu in the top left corner, and then tap Cards. Next, tap Add card (blue +card icon), and then tap Add credit/debit card. Follow the on-screen instructions to register your card. When you add a card, you must agree to the card's terms and conditions. If you have any questions about the terms, contact the card issuer.

Option to add a credit or debit card to Samsung Pay

Note: You can add and manage up to 10 payment cards, including credit cards and debit cards. You can also add unlimited gift cards to your account.

Add a payment card on the watch

Before you can use Samsung Pay on your watch, you need to connect your watch to your phone and add a PIN. If you've used Samsung Pay before, you may be able to import cards you've already added. But if it's your first time using Samsung Pay, you'll need to add all the cards yourself.

On your phone, open the Galaxy Wearable app. From the Home tab, swipe to and tap Samsung Pay. If prompted, sign into your Samsung account. Tap + in the upper right of the screen, and then tap Add credit or debit card. You can take a photo of the card number or manually enter them by tapping Enter card manually. Fill in all required information, and then tap Next. Review the Terms of Service, and then tap Agree to all. Select a method to verify your card, and then tap Submit. Finally, tap Done.

Add a credit or debit card option for smart watch

Once everything is set up, you'll be able to view watch transactions through the Galaxy Wearable app. Watch transactions are tracked separately from phone transactions.

Note: Initial setup and card registration for your watch may vary depending on the region or wireless service provider. Even if the cards you're adding have already been registered to your phone, they still need to be activated on your watch.
