Manage Favorite Cards with Samsung Pay

You can speed up transactions when you use Favorite Cards in Samsung Pay. You'll be able to access cards from the Lock or Home screens, or even when your screen is off. That means no more digging through your pockets and holding up the line at the register.

Add or remove Favorite Cards

By default, all registered credit and debit cards are added as Favorite Cards. But you can add or remove your preferred cards at any time.

Open Samsung Pay on your phone, and then tap Menu. Tap Settings, and then tap Manage Favorite Cards. Select or deselect the cards you want to set as Favorite Cards. When you are done, simply tap the Back arrow.

Note: You can set up to 15 cards as your favorite cards.

Use the Favorite Cards feature

When the Favorite Cards feature is activated on your phone, you'll be able to access your cards in an instant.

Simply swipe up from the bottom of the screen to pull up your Favorite Cards. They can be accessed from the Lock screen, Home screen, or when the screen is off.

To customize the different Favorite Cards locations, open Samsung Pay, and then tap Menu. Tap Settings, and then tap Use Favorite Cards. Tap the switch next to your desired locations to turn Favorite Cards on or off for that screen.

Change the order of Favorite Cards

To make things even easier, you can change the order of your favorite cards when you access the Favorite Cards menu.

Swipe up from the bottom of the screen to pull up Favorite Cards. Touch and hold a card, and then drag it to your desired location. The cards will automatically swap positions.

Note: The last card you used will automatically appear when you access Favorite Cards, regardless of the card order.
