Samsung Pay is a fast and convenient way to make purchases with your mobile device. Samsung Pay is unique because it is one of the few mobile payments services that is compatible with traditional magnetic stripe card readers and NFC terminals, making it usable at almost any card reader terminal.
Samsung Pay allows you to use the Galaxy S6, S6 active, S6 edge+ and Note 5 to make in-store mobile payments through the use of proprietary built-in technology. It spans locations where merchant accept tap and pay because the technology works on new card readers as well as most of those that have been in place for years.
Samsung Pay uses proprietary technology that works with both Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST) and Near Field Communication (NFC) to make contactless mobile payments. MST and NFC enable the Galaxy S6, S6 active, S6 edge+ and Note 5 to make transactions at most card readers where you can swipe or tap your card, excluding gas station pumps.
Samsung Pay works almost anywhere you can swipe or tap your card.* Note that Samsung Pay does not currently work at gas station pumps where you have to insert your card, but it will work at most gas station cashier card readers.

For security reasons, we may need you to provide additional verification to add your HRCU card to Samsung Pay. If necessary, the Samsung Pay app will tell you how to verify your card.Once your information is verified, you will see an on-screen message that your card is ready for Samsung Pay. If you do not see an on-screen message please call us at 603.509.1297.
Start by either swiping from the home button or opening the Samsung Pay app from your home screen. Next, select the card you want to pay with. Then, verify using your fingerprint and hover your device about Â½ inch over the card reader where you'd usually swipe or tap your physical card to complete the transaction. If you prefer you can set up Samsung Pay to use a personal identification number (PIN) instead of your fingerprint for verification.

Most transactions made through Samsung Pay are viewable shortly after processing, for one month from the time of purchase.

Additionally a push notification with transaction details will be sent to your device after each Samsung Pay purchase. Note: Push notifications require an active internet connection.
If you make a Samsung Pay purchase with your Debit Card, the merchant may request authorization for an initial amount and send us the actual transaction amount for payment. The initial authorized amount appears in your Samsung Pay transaction history, but the actual transaction amount is deducted from your account.
This happens in places where:
- You can add a tip (restaurants, salons)
- There can be a significant difference between the amount that is initially authorized and the actual transaction amount (hotels, car rental agencies)
- For most Debit Card purchases, we receive the payment request, including the actual transaction amount, within 3 business days of the transaction.
- Keep track of your transactions and ensure you have sufficient funds in your account to cover the final payment.
