For all those folks out there who haven’t been able to get into the beta for Samsung Pay, the wait is over. Earlier today, Samsung started rolling out its in-house alternative for Apple Pay and Android Pay.
Samsung Pay allows you to attach a supported credit or debit card, and use your device to make payments on the go. One of the awesome features of Samsung Pay is that you can use it even with the mobile terminal that doesn’t have ‘Tap to Pay’ functionality built-in. When using Samsung Pay with one of those older terminals, all you need to do is hold your device near the terminal and voila, you’ve paid for your items without taking out your wallet.
If you’re wondering which devices are compatible with Samsung Pay right now, here’s the list for you:
Now, the Samsung Pay app is probably already pre-loaded onto your device, but you haven’t been able to access anything within the app. all you need to do is open up the Samsung Pay app, and your device will install the updated app that has all the goodies within.
Once the app is downloaded, you will be greeted with a few welcome screens, which describe exactly what Samsung Pay can do. Once you’ve gotten past that, you’ll be able to enter your credit or debit card, and get to spending.
As a little gift to those who want to try out Samsung Pay, Samsung is giving away some goodies to you. If you activate Samsung Pay on a Galaxy Note5 or Galaxy S6 Edge+, you’ll have the option of receiving either a wireless charger or a flip case. In order to take advantage of this giveaway, you’ll need to activate Samsung Pay on either of those devices before October 11th, which gives everyone about 2 weeks or so.
Let us know if you’ve tried out Samsung Pay already, and what you think about the overall experience.
