Introduction: Samsung Pay is a convenient feature for Galaxy phone owners. You can make cashless and on-the-go payments easily with your Galaxy S23 or other compatible devices (e.g., Galaxy Watch). This page shows you how to set up Samsung Pay, register cards, and make payments with it.

Please note, Samsung Pay and added cards are tied to the device. For example, if you add a card to the wallet on Galaxy S23, you cannot use it on Galaxy Watch, which must be set up separately. The card verification is for each device separately.

If you reset your Galaxy S23, you must set it up from the scratch again.
