What is Samsung Pay®?

Samsung Pay®, now part of Samsung Wallet®, is a digital wallet platform that allows you to pay for purchases with select Samsung Galaxy® devices at participating merchants.

How does Samsung Pay® work?

Samsung Pay® uses proprietary technology that works with both Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST) and Near Field Communications (NFC) to make contactless mobile payments. Due to the use of both MST and NFC technology, Samsung Pay® enables you to make secure transactions at virtually every card reader where you swipe or tap your card. You don't even have to wake up your device to use Samsung Pay®. At any time after you've registered your credit or debit cards, just swipe up from the home button and select a card. Use your fingerprint, iris scan, or enter your PIN to verify your purchase and then hold your device near the card reader to pay.

What is a contactless payment?

A contactless payment is a transaction that uses chip-based technology and requires no physical contact between the payment device (a card or mobile device) and the physical merchant terminal.

Does Members First Credit Union of Florida charge for using Samsung Pay®?

No. The service is free, however message and data rates may apply depending on your data plan.

What differentiates Samsung Pay® from Apple Pay™ or Google Pay™?

Both Apple Pay™ and Google Pay™ rely on Near Field Communication (NFC) technology to make contactless payments. These services are limited to merchants with NFC-enabled payment terminals. Merchants are required to upgrade to a new payment terminal with NFC capabilities in order to accept Apple Pay™ or Google Pay™.

Samsung Pay®, on the other hand, uses both NFC and Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST) technology, making it work with nearly all current payment terminals. Some payment terminals may require software updates.
