Convenient and Secure Mobile Payment

We’re excited to announce Navy Federal Credit Union has partnered with Samsung Pay*. This service is available to members with Navy Federal MasterCard® and Visa® credit or debit cards.

How It Works

Samsung Pay works at 90 percent of payment terminals by using magnetic secure transmission (MST) and near-field communication (NFC) to transmit payment information. MST and NFC enable you to make secure transactions at virtually every card reader where you can swipe or tap your card.

How It Protects Your Information

To protect your information, Samsung Pay uses tokenization and fingerprint authorization. Tokenization generates a unique sequence of numbers (instead of transmitting your account information) every time you make a purchase. The “token” is encrypted and eliminates the need for merchants to store your card data on their networks.

What It Costs

The service is free* for our Navy Federal credit and debit cardholders.

Eligible Devices

Eligible devices include the Samsung Galaxy S6®, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge®, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+® and Samsung Galaxy Note® 5. Members can set up their Navy Federal MasterCard and Visa credit or debit cards and start using Samsung Pay at authorized merchants.


FAQs

Samsung Pay works almost anywhere you can swipe or tap your card. From the grocery store to the coffee shop to your favorite clothing stores, Samsung Pay is the only mobile payment service that works at the majority of U.S. retail locations. In situations where you have to dip your card or in places where you don't swipe your card yourself (e.g., sit-down restaurants, hotels, auto shops), it's better to use your actual card. Samsung Pay doesn't currently work at gas station pumps with dip readers, but it will work at most gas station cashier card readers.

Please visit www.samsung.com/pay for a full list of compatible devices.

You can use both your Navy Federal MasterCard and Visa credit or debit cards with Samsung Pay.

Compatible devices in supported countries will have Samsung Pay preloaded when purchased.

When paying with Samsung Pay, you'll receive and sign a receipt for your purchases, just as you would with a physical card. You won't receive a separate physical or digital receipt from Samsung Pay.

Returns made through Samsung Pay are handled the same way as with your physical card–according to the store's policies. If you return an item paid for through Samsung Pay, the store may require you to hover your device over either the card reader or the NFC reader to complete the return.

Most transactions made through Samsung Pay are viewable shortly after processing, for one month from the time of purchase. Simply open the app and tap on a card to see all the Samsung Pay transactions made with that card. Additionally, a notification with your transaction details will be sent to your device after each Samsung Pay purchase. Note: notifications require an active internet connection.

The card displayed in Samsung Pay won't always exactly match your physical card. The key points to look for are:

  1. the card issuer
  2. the card network

Cards can be easily added to Samsung Pay by using your device's camera to scan in your card's information or by manually inputting the card information yourself.

You can add up to 10 cards using Samsung Pay. Both credit cards and debit cards can be added.

The average amount of time it takes before your card is fully active for use after being added and verified will vary slightly between issuers, but shouldn't take more than a few minutes. If you encounter any issues, please contact your card issuer for assistance. Don't try to enter the same card multiple times.
