How to Get Access to Samsung Pay

For some newly released Samsung smartphones, Samsung Pay will be installed in advance. If not, Samsung Pay is now available on Google Play as a free download for compatible devices. Therefore, you can also directly download it on your handset.

Part 2: How to Use Samsung Pay

As a matter of fact, the operation to use it cannot be easier and more simple.

Step 1 Open Samsung Pay
To use Samsung Pay, you can directly turn it on by tapping the app icon on your home screen or app tray, or swiping up from the home button. It's recommended to scan a fingerprint for security. Then, tap "Add" to add your credit card(s) by snapping the information of your card(s) or manually typing in.

Samsung Pay does boast much reputation in US and Korea. I like to use it when I go out for dinner, for shopping, for lots of matters, because it is available on many stores where there are even some not supported Android Pay or Apple Pay. There are some differences among those "Pay" things, but I still give my favor to Samsung Pay. If you are as well a fan of Samsung Pay, make sure you have the supported device and carrier as well as supported banks/issuers. You are able to easily and simply make Samsung Pay anywhere. It is convenient for you if you plan to travel to somewhere, so have a try.
