Samsung Pay is a mobile payment and digital wallet service by Samsung Electronics to replace the plastic cards in your wallet.

It allows you to pay for goods and services by just using your Samsung device. You just need to wave your Samsung pay enabled Samsung devices near a cash register instead of swiping a credit card or inserting your payment information, a bit like Apple Pay or Google Pay.

Currently, it allows payments using debit cards, credit cards, mobile wallet and UPI; all through a single app.

Samsung Pay uses both NFC and MST for payments make it more usable at several retail outlets. MST (Magnetic Secure Transmission) sends a magnetic signal from your device to the payment terminal’s card reader (to emulate swiping a physical card without upgrading the terminal’s software or hardware).

As of now Samsung Pay only works with selected Samsung handsets, making it inaccessible to many.
