Samsung Pay Software


Samsung Pay is mobile payment and digital wallet service for Samsung devices that allows users to make payments at retail stores. Samsung Pay uses either MST (Magnetic Secure Transmission) or NFC (Near Field Communication) to communicate with the card reader.

Card readers which lack NFC functionality, it uses MST technology which emulates the magnetic signal from a traditional card swipe, causing the terminal to register it as if it were a normal magnetic stripe. Samsung Pay leverages algorithm-generated token numbers for each card transaction, which enables only dummy account numbers saved on the device which protects the card and payment information against mobile hackers.

Users can select the card by swiping left or right and authenticate the payment via registered fingerprint or PIN.

Samsung Pay allows users to add up to seven different American Express, Visa or MasterCard card accounts (both debit and credit cards), as well as gift cards.

Supported Operating System(s):
Windows 7 , Windows Vista , Windows XP , Mac OS , Linux , HP-UX , AIX , Solaris , Unix , IBM OS/400 , Web browser (OS agnostic) , Windows 2000 , Windows 8 , Windows 10

    Purchase it too helpful in my side.

    Pros

    Allows one to add various cards into the wallet. Very secure as it uses bio-metric verification to process transactions.

    Cons

    Dependent on phone hence cannot be used when phone is off. Other features are greatily working i have no any problem with them so far.

    Easy to use, quick, convenient. I like not having to dig around for a credit card or cash- cell phone is usually in hand

    Cons

    Credit card will pop up when not needed from time to time. Biggest problem is that it's not always accepted, won't work on low battery, has had trouble reading with certain phone cases

    This is an easy app. As for me not having really any technical knowledge when it comes to computer technology .. literally hooking up a TV is work for me.. But this app makes it easy and convenient with acceptable fees and easy setup.. I use it on occasion when I do not have cash

    Cons

    This is just similar to other available payment options. Fees are acceptable in comparison to some others but still its ok and easy to use.

    One of the revolutionary way to pay for purchase, which has minimized many traditional card-carrying methods, and brought marvelous near-field communication technology to process at tab to pay terminals. With the samsung pay there is no charge to use samsung pay from chase, but an active data plan is required.

    Pros

    load as many credit and debit card, works with number of international banks, and secured transaction on top of that on every eligible purchase one gets rewards point for loyalty.
    No need to enter card number and name after shopping online and no more hassles of input, just use your fingerprint or iris scanner to purchase product successfully.
    Plenty of applications with just one tap.

    Cons

    Samsung pay does work with most of the merchants and local stores, It doesn't work at gas stations and hence you might need to carry an optional card.

    Samsung Pay is very much flexible and accepted at a number of places. I was a little skeptical at first because it was so easy to use! I would definitely recommend this!

    Cons

    I don't really have any cons so to say, the only one being it's not entirely accepted everywhere, but that's not Samsung's fault!

    Pros

    Very easy to use and widely accepted. The applications is as widely available and accessible as Visa/Mastercard/Discover/American Express credit/debit cards.

    Cons

    I personally have not experienced anything negative or burdensome at all. So this makes writing a cons hard.

    Pros

    The best thing about Samsung pay is working with almost all of the point-of-sale (POS) systems. Even with old ones. Also, one of the amazing features is managing the membership and gift cards. For instance, I have so many small gift cards for Dunkin Donuts, it's easy to manage them and check balance quickly and get rid of those which are empty.

    Cons

    No integration with payment systems such as PayPal. All need to be connected to cards and it's not supporting all cards. Also, it doesn't support Visa Gift cards which are not the best. For instance, my Walmart credit card doesn't work. Another issue is lack of ability of integration with other apps such as Amazon app or Walmart app for online shopping. I loved Samsung Pay reward programs but these days it's not as good as before. The 5 min wait time before purchases is also annoying but I cannot argue on that.

    I love the convenience but its need for wanting you to interact with it can be annoying.

    Pros

    I like the fact that it’s on your phone without needing to download anything. Being able to only take your phone and not your whole wallet is a major plus. Fingerprint identification is also nice. Receipts emailed to you regarding products paid for is a great feature that keeps you in the know for where your money is going through the app.

    Cons

    I have an issue with the “opening slide” being on the bottom of my phone (S8+). There have been many times when I opened it without wanting to. I also do not like notifications sent that a particular location uses Samsung Pay AFTER I leave. It would have been more helpful to let me know ahead of time. I also would like to be able to get a list of stores that take Samsung Pay. I’ve scoured the web looking for such a list but haven’t run across it. The app has incentives that pop up from time to time for points and upping your “level” but there’s no way to turn it off.

    Samsung Pay makes it easier to pay shops while you are on shopping. You don't have to worry about you leaving your credit card on the shops you went to.

    You have to download the actual application for each shop. It is limited and not every shop has Samsung Pay.

    Functionality
    Quality

    Value for Money
    Pros

    It integrates with all Samsung systems mostly phones *I had this option on my windows phone* and allows for one touch payment. The advantage to this is that it's unhackable as your code is constantly being changed and it has less prompts than a typical pay system. From a POS perspective it's just one more way to take payments from customers.

    Cons

    No real complaints, the implementation at the store level took a little longer than expected but I think it's due to our infrastructure but other than that no complaints.
