Samsung Pay

Samsung Pay is a mobile payment and digital wallet service by Samsung that lets users make payments using compatible phones and other Samsung-produced devices. It works with a variety of contactless payment terminals, including NFC, magnetic stripe, and chip-based systems. For check-out devices which use Magnetic Secure Transmission, a device equipped for Samsung Pay simulates the signal produced by a card using that technology, making it so Samsung Pay can work “virtualy anywhere you can swipe your card.”
