What is Samsung Pay?

Samsung Pay is a safe and simple way to make mobile payments with select Samsung Galaxy devices, and it works at almost any retailer where you can swipe or tap your card.1

1 Only compatible with select cards, carriers and Samsung devices; see the Samsung Pay Support page for compatibility information.

What are Samsung Pay’s main features?

Samsung Pay allows you to use the Galaxy S6, S6 edge, S6 edge+, S6 Active and Note 5 to make in-store mobile payments through the use of proprietary built-in technology. It works at more places than any other mobile payment service because the technology works on new card readers as well as most of those that have been in place for years.

How does Samsung Pay work?

Samsung Pay uses proprietary technology that works with both Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST) and Near Field Communication (NFC) to make contactless mobile payments. MST and NFC enable the Galaxy S6, S6 edge, S6 edge+, S6 Active, and Note 5 to make secure transactions at virtually every card reader where you can swipe or tap your card.

Where can I use Samsung Pay?

Samsung Pay works almost anywhere you can swipe or tap your card. 1 From the grocery store to the coffee shop to your favorite clothing stores, Samsung Pay is the only mobile payment service that works at the majority of U.S. retail locations. Note that it is better to use your physical card in situations where you have to dip your card or in places where customers don’t swipe cards themselves (e.g. sit-down restaurants, hotels, auto shops, etc.). Samsung Pay does not currently work at gas station pumps with dip readers, but it will work at most gas station cashier card readers.

Which devices will support Samsung Pay?

Samsung Pay is supported on the Galaxy S6, S6 edge, S6 edge+, S6 Active, and Note 5. Please visit http://www.samsung.com/pay for a full list of compatible devices.

How do I get Samsung Pay?

For Galaxy S6, S6 edge, S6 edge+, S6 active and Note 5, Samsung Pay will be automatically installed through a software update. Going forward, compatible devices in supported countries will have Samsung Pay preloaded when purchased.

Which cards can I add to Samsung Pay?

All Cambridge Savings Bank debit cards (with the exception of business debit cards) are offering Samsung Pay. We anticipate that Cambridge Savings Bank business debit cards will have Samsung Pay later in 2016.

In which countries will Samsung Pay be available and when will Samsung Pay launch?

Samsung Pay has launched in the United States and South Korea in 2015. Samsung is working to expand into additional countries.
