Follow the steps below to add a payment card to Samsung Pay on Gear S3. Payment cards set up in Samsung Pay on your mobile device do not transfer automatically to Samsung Pay on Gear S3. They must be added separately. 

Please be sure that the phone and Gear S3 have stable network connection. An unstable network or firewall can cause problems adding cards and setup.

  2. Touch Samsung Gear.

    The Samsung Gear app may be located in the Samsung folder by default on some devices.

  3. Touch the SETTINGS tab.
  4. Touch to open Samsung Pay on Gear companion app.
  5. Touch the ADD CARD icon to scan your card.
