Samsung Pay is a payment method used on many major banks and credit card companies. It is becoming increasingly popular due to its low processing fees and ease of use.
Samsung Pay was released as an app for Android and iOS devices in March 2016. At that time, it was only available on Samsung phones, but now it is available on most major platforms.
The app can be downloaded from the Play Store or App Store, making it easy to locate. Once installed, users can start using it immediately by entering their phone number followed by the payment method you want to use.
This article will go into detail about how to get samsung pay onto your gear s2.
If you have a compatible phone, then you need to check for an update on the Samsung Gear app
Once you have Samsung Pay, you can start adding merchants to your wallet!
Many mobile payment providers offer their services via Samsung Pay, making it easy to add new merchants to your account.
To get Samsung Pay on Gear S2, you will need to download the Samsung Gear app and then add the merchant’s phone number via the app.
Once you have the app updated, connect your watch to your phone
Now that the app is connected, you can go to a Samsung store orSamsung Experience and use Samsung Pay.
This process may take several tries because it connects the first time. After that, you can visit a store and use your phone to pay.
At checkout, the owner can either scan your card or put it on Samsung Pay. Once they do, the purchase is taken immediately and automatically credited to your bank account.
Go to Settings > About Gear > Software update > Update
When prompted to set a Samsung Pay PIN or Samsung Watch PIN, do it! You will need both to be able to update your Gear S2.
If you do not have a Samsung Watch, then you can still get Samsung Pay by using your phone as a payment method. Just remember to have your phone paired and connected to the Gear S2 when doing this.
Just like with Samsung Pay on the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, you will need to verify your card before making any purchases.
Once complete, try paying with your watch at a store that uses pay-pass or tap+pay
Once you’ve verified your account, go to the store’s website or app and try paying with your watch. If the store accepts it, then you’re good to go!
If not, then visit gpsw.samsung.com and download the Samsung Pay mobile app. You will need to enter your credit card information via the app to use Samsung Pay at the store.
Once you do that, try paying at the register and see if they accept Samsung Pay. If so, you’re all set!
If not, find a nearby store that uses Visa or Mastercard and shop there. They should let you have access to Samsung Pay eventually.
Confirm that your credit card is linked to Samsung Pay and not Android Pay or Apple Pay
Both Android Pay and Apple Pay are available on Gear S2, so this article does not need to explain which one to use. However, when looking into Samsung Pay, you must confirm that your credit card is linked to it.
If your card is not linked, then you cannot expect Samsung Pay to work. To make sure Samsung Pay works, go through the process of linking your account and receiving updates for payment apps. If you still have troubles with Samsung Pay, contact customer service.
Some cards do not match up well with both Android Pay and ApplePay.
Make sure that you are near your phone but not wearing it when trying to pay with your watch
This is a big one, so make sure to read through to the end. If you have your Samsung phone and Samsung wristwatch nearby but it is not your phone, then you do not have Samsung Pay!
To get Samsung Pay on your Gear S2 or S2 watch, you must be within close proximity of your phone when paying. You can do this by going to the payment screen while wearing the watch on your wrist, or when connected via Bluetooth.
When paying with the watch, make sure that you are selecting the right bank account for the purchase. This way, your smartphone will recognize that you have paid with that account before placing a purchase on your wrist.
If you do not have a bank card in your device, try using PayPal or an online wallet instead to get rid of the paper money requirement.
Power management may affect ability to pay with Samsung Pay on Gear S2
When Samsung Pay is enabled, it will display a notification icon on the watch face. You can then decide to power down your device or keep tapping to add credit card and purchases.
To use Samsung Pay on Gear S2, you must have at least a 50% charge of the Gear S2 when you go to add cards and purchases. It works even if the Gear S2 is charging at the same time.
You can also use Samsung Pay in locations that have no credit card or no rotating credit cards, like cash would be more trustful than ones with sequential numbers.
If you plan to use Samsung Pay, make sure you have at least a 50% charge left on your device before attempting to add cards and purchases.
