Watch How Easy It Is To Use Samsung Pay!

With the early access programme for Maybank Visa customers, Samsung is getting ready to roll out Samsung Pay on a massive scale in Malaysia. After their announcement of the official availability of Samsung Pay for Maybank customers, we were given the opportunity to check out just how easy it is to use Samsung Pay, instead of our credit or debit cards.

In this article, you will learn about Samsung Pay’s key features, and find out just how easy it is to use Samsung Pay.


Samsung Pay : More Than A Payment Service

Samsung Pay is a secure and easy-to-use mobile payment service that can be used almost everywhere that credit / debit / prepaid cards are accepted. It offers these key features :

  • Simple : To make a payment on Samsung Pay, users can simply swipe up on their eligible Galaxy smartphone, scan their fingerprint and pay.
  • Secure : Samsung Pay uses three levels of security to enable secure payments – fingerprint authentication, tokenization and Samsung KNOX, Samsung’s defense-grade mobile security platform.
  • Almost Anywhere : Samsung Pay is compatible with the majority of existing and new terminals, allowing users to pay almost anywhere you can swipe or tap your card.

Samsung Pay is currently compatible with the following Samsung smartphones :

In the first video, we make a payment at Marks & Spencer (M&S). They are still using the older MST terminal, but look at how easy and fast it is to use Samsung Pay, instead of a credit card.

It is the same experience at Starbucks, which is also using an older MST terminal. This gives Samsung Pay a huge advantage, as they do not rely exclusively on the new but much rare NFC terminals.

The steps on using Samsung Pay can be summarised as such :

  1. Swipe up on the screen of your Samsung smartphone, and Samsung Pay appears
  2. Swipe left and right in Samsung Pay to select the credit / debit / prepaid card you want to use
  3. Press on the fingerprint sensor or key in the pin number to authenticate the transaction
  4. Tap your Samsung smartphone on the credit card terminal

That’s it! Whether it’s an older MST terminal, or the newer NFC terminal, the payment’s authenticated and accepted.
