How to pay

In-store

 

To pay in-store with your phone, simply swipe up on the screen or open the Samsung Pay app from your home screen. Select the card you want to pay with, hold the device near the contactless reader and authenticate your payment using Iris scanner (on compatible devices), fingerprint or your Samsung Pay PIN.

To pay in-store using your Samsung watch, press and hold the button on the back of your watch and then enter your PIN. Next, rotate the visual bezel to select card and tap 'PAY'. Hold your watch close to the contactless card reader for the payment to be processed.

In apps and on websites

 

To pay within participating apps and websites, select the Samsung Pay Checkout button and authenticate your payment using either Iris scanner (on compatible devices), fingerprint or your Samsung Pay PIN.

Pay on Transport for London (TfL)

 

Samsung Pay allows you to set a card up as a 'Transport card' to use on TfL services. This option means you don't even need to wake your phone or verify with Iris scanner, fingerprint or your Samsung Pay PIN - simply touch the middle section of your phone against the card reader.

You can use this service for pay as you go on London buses, Tube, London Trams, DLR, London Overground, TfL Rail, Emirates Air Line, River Bus and most National Rail services in London.
