FAQs

What is Samsung Pay?

Samsung Pay is a secure and easy-to-use mobile payment service which can be used to make purchases with almost every retailer in Singapore. It enables the use of both credit and debit cards by leveraging on a new proprietary technology called Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST) and Near Field Communication (NFC) to make mobile payments more accessible to both merchants and consumers.

How does Samsung Pay work?

Samsung Pay uses proprietary Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST) and Near Field Communication (NFC) to make contactless mobile payments. MST and NFC enables the Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 edge, Galaxy S6 edge+, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy A5, Galaxy A7 and Gear S3 to make secure transactions with almost every retailer in Singapore.

Which devices will support Samsung Pay?

Samsung Pay is now available on the Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 edge, Galaxy S6 edge+, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy A5, Galaxy A7 and Gear S3. Other newer flagship models will follow.

How secure is Samsung Pay?

Samsung Pay uses tokenisation, a Secure Environment, and Samsung KNOX to secure your payment information. In addition, you can verify either with your fingerprint or a 4-digit PIN when making purchases.

  • Tokenisation is a method of replacing your sensitive payment card information (Card Number, Expiration Date, Security code, etc.) with a device-specific 'Token' which acts as a surrogate value. In mobile payments, 'Tokens' are used to protect your payment information and to reduce the security risks inherent to plastic cards.
  • A Secure Environment is a physically segregated chip in the phone which only allows access to highly sensitive operations/information such as fingerprint and payment information. Normal applications and malware have no access to the information in a Secure Environment.
  • Samsung KNOX runs scans to see if your device is secure. Samsung KNOX will permanently disable Samsung Pay on a compromised device in order to protect your payment information.

In addition, Samsung Pay will not have access to your Citi accounts.
