Samsung Pay is one of the leading payment systems on Android, although it is only limited to the company’s mobile phones. It’s one of the few solutions that resists Google Pay, and is improving more and more in terms of compatibility with banks and operation.
Today we are going to show you how to set up Samsung Pay to get the most out of it, as it is a straightforward service, but it has some cool things to comment on such as find out how to manage your shortcuts, your rewards system And even.
Configurer Samsung Pay
The first thing we need to do to set up Samsung Pay is add a card. There are several ways to do this. The first is give permissions to the camera to scan the card. This is a fairly quick fix, but in some cases (especially in youth cards) if the card itself is very colorful, the application may be rejected and not enter the numbers. To do this, the second solution makes sense: connect the card via contactless. Like it’s a POS, just bring the map to your phone for you to capture via NFC. You will of course have to enter the security code
If none of these solutions worked for us, we can always configure the map by hand. It will be necessary to have it on hand, as we will be asked for both the card number and the security code. Once the card is added, it will be saved in the app.
Activate it quickly
Size of the bottom bar. When it is thicker, it indicates that we can activate Samsung Pay by swiping up.
Now that we have enabled Samsung Pay, let’s see what is the fastest way to activate it. One detail that may go unnoticed is that when we activate Samsung Pay, the bottom bar of the device changes and it gets thicker when you’re in the main office. This indicates that we can activate Samsung Pay by scrolling to the top, the same gesture as when we activated multitasking. This option is only available on the main desktop and on the lock screen, so it does not interfere with multitasking when we are in other apps.
All the ways to pay in store with your mobile phone
The reward system
An advantage of Samsung Pay is that has a reward system. If we buy from certain stores, we will earn points through the Samsung Rewards system. We can see this point management on the home screen, by clicking on Samsung Rewards. The rewards range from movie tickets to cards to buy at Decathlon, Swaroski, Rituals and other related stores, so it’s always worth seeing if we’ve added any points on recent purchases.
Import your loyalty cards
If we have any loyalty card We can also add it to Samsung Pay as it is not limited to credit and debit cards. We can import our cards from Repsol, Cepsa, NH Hotels, Europcar, flight lines, mechanical workshops and a long list. Simply access the settings, click on “Loyalty” then on “Add loyalty cards”.
A UI is usually a somewhat invasive layer with notifications, and when we turn on Samsung Pay, we may start to receive some that we’re not interested in. Fortunately, we can configure Samsung Pay’s own notifications demand. Just go to settings and click on “Notifications”. Here we can configure exactly what we want to do and what not.
Select the cards in the payment tab
We may have multiple cards added to Samsung Pay, but we only pay some of them. To simplify the process, we can configure the cards that appear when we open the payment section. In the settings section, click on “Select cards for payment tab” and we configure the ones we want to appear.
