    Very fast. The cashiers are like WTF and think it's Apple Pay lol.

    Yes, card readers that require the card to be inserted (like ATMs or gas pumps) do not work because they have to be activated by a mechanical switch, which the physical card trips upon insertion. Also, some tablet systems, as you mentioned, are runnig proprietary POS software that is incompatible with standard magstripe encoding.

    So yes, there are exceptions. But 95+% of readers do work.
    I hadn't considered a switch... Still would require me to run something through it and at that point it might as well be the card.

    Yeah, unless you're trying to get Samsung Pay points during one of their multiplier promotions. Then it might be worth the hassle. Either way, those types of readers suck.

    fortunately a lot of gas stations are putting nfc readers on the pumps.

    Hahaha I recently commented on this in another post. In my town almost all of the Speedway/Super Americas have upgraded their pumps. The upgraded pumps have a square with a data logo, but they all say, coming soon. Which stations have you come across that have NFC actually working?

    For me, it's easier to use Kroger Pay now that they've finally made it easier on their app. Scan the QR code displayed by the app, scan your groceries, hit mobile pay, and you're done. Loyalty card and payment in one, so it saves a step there. I need my loyalty points for the gas savings.

    is there a widget for kroger pay? I use a third party launcher and widgets does not always appear. or is there a short cut to kroger pay. I was just setting it up and found you have to open the app, open settings, scroll down then open kroger pay.

    Once Kroger pay is set up, then open the Kroger app at the store and there will be a long button for Kroger pay. You have to be at the store to get the convenient access to it. No widgets.

    Samasung Pay never worked for me in Kroger.

    I have used it in self checkouts of more than one store.

    I have no issues in any other brand stores like Aldi, Walmart, Costco, etc. Kroger is the first time I have issues with Samsung Pay.

    However there is a mobile payment barcode that Kroger App gives and it works.

    It's a little bit of an inconvenience as my Kroger membership Plus Card barcode is also included inside Samsung Pay app and I didn't like to open Kroger App all the time mostly because it is slow.

    None of the Kroger associates could utilize the Samsung Pay either.

    I think they are either very backwards as of tech or it is an intentional ignorance.

    anyone ever get samsung pay to work at kroger?
    In Colorado we have King Soopers in the Metro areas and City Market in the mountain areas which are both Kroger affiliates. Samsung Pay works flawlessly at those. Nor have I had issues with Fry's, Dillons, Fred Myers or Ralph's stores which are also affiliates.

    I can't recall if I have tried it specifically in a Kroger named store, but I am not if there is any reason it wouldn't work.

    King Soopers and City Market both take Kroger Pay as well, but I find it a PITA to use by comparison and more difficult to switch payment cards, which is important to me since I sometimes pick up for business or other family member and have various cards in Samsung Pay.

    I want to say that I've used my Samsung Pay at Krogers here in Ohio. I know years ago I was successful at using Google Pay at Krogers but that was before they came out with their own pay system. Then there was a long drought of me not going to Krogers but I'm back to occasionally Krogering and I'm sure I've had to use SP a time or two just because it's convenient. I have one BP that if I use SP requires me to use my PIN and it's either Kroger or Wally World I had to actually read the screen when using it because it doesn't just go through like everything else. There's something that is displayed that I have to agree to or cancel or something for the transaction to actually go through.

    Now I'm going to have to be vigilant when I'm checking out...
