Samsung Pay is a digital wallet platform for Android smartphones only, which allows you to authorize an online payment. A customer can accept online payments through Samsung Pay with their Samsung device.
Some of the main benefits of offering Samsung Pay as a payment method are:
- Safe & Secure: Samsung Pay does not send the user’s debit or credit card number with your payment. Instead, a unique Token number is used to represent the actual card. So, the card details always stay safe
- Easy to use: No need for the users to carry credit or debit cards. They should have installed only the Samsung App on their mobile
- Availability: Samsung Pay works almost everywhere contactless payments can be accepted

Payment method messaging
