Samsung Pay FAQs

Answer: Samsung Pay is accepted at millions of retailers across the United States. Learn more about who accepts Samsung Pay and if you're out shopping and unsure, you can always ask an employee or look for the Samsung Pay logo at checkout.

Answer: Unfortunately, there can always be some level of risk when using credit or debit cards. That said, Samsung has built-in security features to help keep your information safe. Every purchase uses an encrypted version of your card, meaning your card number is:

  • Never stored on your device.
  • Never shared with merchants.
Transactions also require authentication through the fingerprint sensor, iris scan, or PIN, and your card number and identity aren't stored on your device. In the event your device is stolen, a purchase can’t be made through Samsung Pay without authentication.

Answer: No, Samsung does not charge fees for using Samsung Pay.
