What should I do if Samsung Pay is not working with the payment terminal?

Samsung Pay should work at all retailers that accept Interac Flash. Depending on the location of the signal from the phone and the case you are using, you may need to either remove the case or re-position your phone on the payment terminal. Payment terminals also vary from store to store so what works at one may not work at another. If you have trouble, ask the retailer if they accept Interac® on Samsung Pay.

Do I need network access to make a purchase?

No. Your phone (powered and unlocked) has everything you need to complete a purchase at a retailer, whether or not you have network access at that time. As with card purchases, you may not be able to complete a purchase if the retailer’s payment terminal is offline or unavailable. You will need network access to receive transaction notifications from Samsung.

I’m having trouble with Samsung Pay. Who do I contact?

If you are having trouble using Samsung Pay, please call us at 1-800-598-2891 and we will be happy to answer your questions.

Will the case on my phone interfere with making purchases?

The Samsung Pay signal is a magnetic field created by a small antenna, which interacts with a similar antenna on the payment terminal. The case on your phone, depending on its thickness and material, could interfere with this signal. If you have trouble using Samsung Pay, try re-positioning your phone on the terminal and waiting up to a few seconds for the devices to communicate with one another. For some thicker phone cases, you may need to remove the case to complete a purchase.

How is Samsung Pay secured?

Each Samsung Pay transaction is protected by, and requires, your authorization using PIN, fingerprint or iris scan. Samsung Pay uses tokenization, a secure environment and Samsung KNOX to secure your payment information. Card information is encrypted and securely sent to the appropriate card network. Upon determining their card validity, account information, and device integrity, Interac sends a token to the device. The token is stored in the Trusted Execution Environment on the device, leveraging Samsung KNOX’s Architecture. No debit card information is stored on Samsung’s devices or servers.

Is additional information being collected from me when I use Samsung Pay?

Samsung Pay does not capture any transaction information that can be tied back to you. If you have location services turned on, the location of your device and the approximate date and time of the transaction may be sent anonymously to Samsung. View the Samsung Pay terms and conditions for more information.

What is NFC?

NFC stands for Near Field Communication, which is a contactless proximity technology. NFC uses the same technical standards as plastic cards (such as Interac® Flash), which allows you to tap your card to complete transactions. It is known for short range, secure transmission, with a maximum distance of less than 5-10 cm. In practice, phones need to be held very near to device readers for a few seconds to complete a transaction.

How does the technology work?

When you register a card with Samsung Pay, the card is assigned a digital identification number, which is encrypted and verified by Samsung and Interac – and protects your payment information.

How am I protected against fraud?

Each Samsung Pay transaction requires your authorization through PIN, fingerprint or iris scan. Your card number is not shared with the merchant nor saved on your device.
