Use the Camera to Capture Payment Card Number in Samsung Pay
Samsung Pay uses your phone's camera to quickly capture the payment card number and expiration date using Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology. When the card information is detected, the numbers appear over the card image.
Samsung does not store or have access to payment information added to Samsung Pay.
Capture Payment Card Information
You can capture payment card information automatically using the camera. To automatically detect the card number and expiration date, align your payment card inside the frame. For best results, make sure the card is situated inside the frame, the entire card is visible, and you are in a well-lit area. Learn more about adding a payment card.
