Carry your credit and debit cards on your Galaxy device - and make secure contactless payments on the go.
Samsung Pay is like having a wallet on your smartphone. Just download the app, take a photo of your cards and then you can start to pay on the go. Samsung Pay recognises your card without taking any of your personal details.
Most of our Co-operative Bank debit and credit cards are eligible, except for ATM cards and business credit/ debit cards. To use Samsung Pay, cardholders will need a NFC capable Samsung device running Android Nougat 7.0 software or higher.
Samsung Pay doesn't send your actual debit or credit card number with your payment. Instead it uses a virtual account number that differs from the details on your card, meaning your card details stay safe. Additionally your fingerprint, iris or 4-digit PIN is required to authorise in-store purchases.
Firstly you will need to check that the contact details we hold for you are up to date. This is because we send you a verification code to the mobile number or email address that we have registered for you to verify it is you adding the card to your device.
You can check your contact details and update if required in online or mobile banking. Please be aware that if you need to update your details, you will have to wait up to five days to add your card to Samsung Pay. This is in place to protect you from fraud. If you wish to add your card before then, you will need to call us to update your contact details so that we can verify it's you before your card is added.
You can make a Samsung Pay payment wherever you see a contactless logo. You just need to unlock your device, open the app and select the card you wish to use for the transaction – or simply set a default card to avoid having to choose from a selection in the future.
Verify the payment through fingerprint recognition, iris recognition (on Samsung S8/ S8+ devices only) or by using your Samsung Pay 4 digit PIN.
Hover the back of your phone above the contactless terminal to make the payment.
While there is no default maximum spend with Samsung Pay, some merchants may choose to set a maximum spend like other contactless payment methods.
Compatible Samsung devices include all Samsung Galaxy S6, S7 and S8 devices with the Android Nougat 7.0 software update.
Samsung Pay will also be compatible with the following Samsung Android mobile devices, if they are updated to Android 5.0 or higher and if they have the latest version of Samsung Gear installed:
Call us immediately on +44(0)345 600 6000 (call charges) and we will cancel the card, order you a replacement card and automatically update your card in the Wallet the next working day. Lines are available 24/7.
If you have lost your Samsung device or believe it has been stolen, your payment information will not be accessible without your fingerprint or Samsung Pay PIN. For added security however, you can use the Samsung ‘Find My Mobile’ service to remotely lock or erase any registered cards on your Samsung Pay App.
