How do I make a purchase using Samsung Pay?

Can I use Samsung Pay if I’m in a poor service area?
Samsung Pay can perform a limited number of transactions with poor service. If you’re without Internet and need to use Samsung Pay, the app will tap into a limited number of stored tokens on the device.
Is Samsung Pay a secure method for making payments?
Samsung Pay is more secure than traditional payment methods because the full card account number is not stored or passed to merchants. A “token” is used in place of the full card account number. A token is a substitute account number that replaces your card number and is used to make secure purchases in stores and in-app. If a card becomes compromised the full card will not need to be replaced. Instead, a new token will be issued to the member on the same credit card.
How do I make returns on purchases I have made using Samsung Pay?
You can make a return the same way you would with your plastic card by contacting the merchant directly. It is recommended that you bring the device used to purchase the item when returning it.
