Frequently asked questions

What is Samsung Pay?

Samsung Pay is a secure and easy-to-use mobile payment service which can be used to make purchases nearly everywhere. Samsung Pay allows you to pay with your Citi credit cards using your Samsung phone, by leveraging new technologies called Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST) and Near Field Communication (NFC).

Samsung Pay currently supports in-store payments only and cannot be used to make online or in-app payments.

What do I need to start using Samsung Pay?

  • Sign in to Samsung Pay with your Samsung Pay account. Samsung Pay is available on eligible devices, pre-installed or as an update.
  • Setup your Samsung Pay PIN or fingerprint – this will be used for all your Samsung Pay transactions.
  • If you choose to use your fingerprint and have not already registered a fingerprint on your device, you will be asked to register your fingerprint.
  • Samsung Pay will ask you to verify your fingerprint. You will then be asked to create a Samsung Pay PIN. Your Samsung Pay is now set up and you can add your Citi credit cards.

How do I add my Citi credit card to Samsung Pay?

  • Select "Add Card" in your Samsung Pay app.

  • Read, understand and accept the Terms and Conditions.
  • To ensure safety for your account, Citi will review the request to add your Citi credit card to Samsung Pay.

  • Enrolment will be subject to Citi’s approval criteria.

How do I make in-store purchases with Samsung Pay?

  • Initiate Samsung Pay by either swiping-up from the home button or opening the Samsung Pay app from the home screen.
  • Select the Citi credit card you want to pay with by swiping left or right.
  • Verify your fingerprint to authorize the transaction. Alternatively, you can enter your 4-digit Samsung Pay PIN if you have chosen not to use the fingerprint feature.
  • Terminal options:
    • If the merchant has a NFC terminal, simply tap your phone on the NFC reader to complete the transaction
    • If the merchant uses a non NFC terminal, then place the device next to magstripe swipe slot and authenticate via your Citi credit card APIN for domestic purchases.

Do note that for non-NFC terminals, the device must be placed within 5cm of the card reader in order for MST payment to work.
