About Samsung Pay

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 payme...

Samsung answer to apple pay

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.

Nothing Special

The Samsung Pay app works great if you have a Samsung Pay, but is less universal than Android Pay, and really doesn't do anything to stand out of the pack.

Pros

Samsung Pay is like any other app used for paying with you phone. Its quick and convenient, and when setup correctly its nice to not have to carry around multiple cards in your wallet.

Cons

Although it has gotten much better, this app does not eliminate the need for a physical card. Not all registers accept Samsung Pay.

Reasons for Choosing Samsung Pay

I tried out Samsung Pay for a couple months, but decided to go with Android Pay in the end

Spectacular application

Let's promote the digital payment for the better life.

Pros

Samsung pay is spectacular mobile payment application, it makes my life more easier. Doesn't need to bring wallet and cash when I go out and want to purchase anything.

Cons

Can't say anything bad regarding Samsung Pay because it is also accepted worldwide and didn't have cons for all Samsung users.

The Best Mobile Wallet

We were able to process and keep track of client payments as well as set-up reimbursements. Having this option was very convenient as many of our clientele would not carry adequate cash and we did not have any other credit/debit card processing system in place.

Pros

This app can be utilized in both a professional and personal capacity as a digital wallet for processing, making, and keeping digital track of payments, bills, and money transfers. I still use this product in my personal life today even though I no longer work with the company that introduced me to it. If you don't feel like rummaging through your wallet for your plastic, plenty of big name stores have implemented this software into their check-out systems.
