More and more consumers are using their mobile devices to send and receive payments. According to Samsung, “Turn your phone into your wallet. Don’t change where you shop, just change the way you pay. You can even use Samsung Pay when your device’s display is off.”
Combining your VISA and your Samsung device adds an entirely new level of security and convenience.
Instead of using your actual credit and debit card, Samsung Pay creates a unique Device Account Number, encrypting and securely storing it. That way sensitive information stays private. With Samsung Pay, in addition to NFC, it also uses a Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST) which uses a tiny coil that shoots out the same magnetic code that those readers normally get from your physical card.
How to Set Up Samsung Pay
Find the app pre-installed on your phone or download it off Google Pay. Then, sign into your Samsung account. Snap a picture of your National JACL VISA, and follow the instructions
