Set Up Samsung Pay on Gear S3

Samsung Pay is an incredible and convenient app that lets you pay for things on the go. But what if I told you we can make Samsung Pay even more convenient for you. You can now use Samsung Pay on your Gear S3. So no more taking out either your wallet or phone to pay for something, just use whats on your wrist.

Screens and steps shown below may vary by wireless service provider and your phone.

Non-Samsung Phones

Samsung Pay for Gear S3 is now available on most Android phones. Before setting up Samsung Pay on your Gear S3, Download and install the Samsung Gear app onto your phone.

Once you've got it, open Samsung Gear on your phone. Touch SETTINGS > Samsung Pay, and then touch Install. You will be required to download a few plugins, no big deal. When the installation is complete, touch Done.

Now you're all ready to set up Samsung Pay.

If Samsung Pay is not available on your phone, contact support and we'll be glad to help!

Set Up Samsung Pay on Gear S3

Start making payments quickly and securely on the go with Samsung Pay.

From any screen, press and hold the Back key on the Gear S3 for 1 to 2 seconds. If this is your first time opening Samsung Pay, it may take a few seconds for it to start. Rotate the bezel to the right to view basic instructions and then touch the arrow to begin setting up Samsung Pay.

If you have not signed into your Samsung account, you will be required to sign in. Touch OK to continue. On your phone, touch START. To add a payment card, touch ADD CARD. Oh, and you can also touch LATER to add a card at another time. Payment cards must be added to your Gear S3, even if you have already added them to the Samsung Pay app.

Touch TURN ON to set up a secure screen lock if you don't already have one set. On your Gear S3, enter a four-digit PIN and then enter the PIN again to confirm it. Touch NEXT to begin setting up your payment card. Align your card inside the frame to automatically detect the card number and expiration date.

You can also touch Enter card manually if your device cannot detect the card information. Enter any incomplete information and then touch NEXT. Enter the billing address associated with your card and then touch NEXT. Review the Terms of Service and then touch AGREE TO ALL

If necessary, select a method to authenticate your identity using a one-time password (OTP). Enter the OTP and then touch SUBMIT. Sign your name in the field and then touch SAVE. Finally, touch DONE to complete the process. Whew! Now you can check that one off the list.

After your card is added to Samsung Pay, it will be verified by the payment card network and the card issuer. On average, verification will take approximately 5 to 10 minutes. During that time, you will be unable to use your card in Samsung Pay. After the card is verified, it can be used immediately to make a purchase.
