Sometimes a retailer may not accept a digital Samsung Pay gift card at their register, but there's no need to fret. The merchant can either manually enter the gift card's payment information or scan the digital barcode.

There are two ways to pull up your gift card's number or barcode. Just remember, the barcode is only available on select cards.
