    Just tried it at giant eagle today, everyone was blown away as it worked flawlessly at a non nfc terminal!

    Thanks for the update. I do hope VZW does support this! using my phone at a non NFC terminal is a game changer. One of the reasons I've hung onto my GS6. I still can't get Google Wallet to work reliably at NFC terminals on my GS6 (for example, Sprouts. They have an Apple Pay and Google Wallet logo on their terminal, but I can't get Google Wallet to work. It just keeps making the sounds but does nothing).

    That's odd, I pay with Google Pay at Sprouts all the time. Even payed for the Note 5 upgrade with the old Note 4 using Wallet at the TMobile terminal!

    But being able to pay virtually anywhere with my phone is definitely going to draw some attention. Wish it worked at gas station pumps, that way I could leave all my cards at home. Less clutter in my wallet!

    yeah it is weird. they may have some issue with their system. It's a new store, so maybe they have some software kinks to work out. I'm on my 3rd GS6 (for warranty reasons) and none have worked. I've tried at Home Depot too but I think they disabled their NFC as they are in the process of rolling out new POS updates.

    I'm sick of verizon and for that matter all carriers having this stranglehold on what features/content goes onto the phones they sell. Something needs to change in that department and if verizon does indeed block samsung pay this will be my last phone through them. love their network/service, but cant stand them as a company.

    I am a beta tester but it won't register my Visa card. Its from a local credit union. I hope when this goes live, it will take my card. I was soooo excited when I got the invention!

    IIRC the Beta Sign Up did say that only Bank of America or US Bank cards would work with the Beta. All others will most likely be available upon launch.

    "Have a qualifying card* from Bank of America MasterCard and Visa, or U.S. Bank Visa
    *Qualifying Cards include:
    Bank of America consumer credit, debit cards, small business debit cards (owner card only),
    Merrill Lynch consumer credit cards, U.S. Trust consumer credit, debit cards
    U.S. Bank consumer or small business Visa credit and debit cards, Elan Financial consumer or small business Visa credit card"

    Embarrassing but I thought "US Bank cards" meant all cards from US Banks. I just got done chatting with a Samsung rep and asked if he had a list of what was going to be QUALIFYING CARDS at launch. He said he didn't have that information. It also seems unclear if the financial institution needs to do anything on their end. My wife works at the local Credit Union that our card is issued from and has been trying to find out what they need to do.

    Not sure if they do, but Visa and Mastercard are on board, but since there are several banks (US Bank, Citi, etc.) listed as partners, I'm not sure if there's something extra that has to be done on their end. Maybe there is, since apparently a 'virtual card' is issued when setting it up, from what we hear on the review.
    Furthermore, there seems to be a disclaimer that says that some cards might not be compatible even from participating banks.

    Yes. No issues from the case

    This isn't as 'sensitive' to cases as Wireless Charging BUT a case will reduce the effective range, especially if it's a metal case or if it's too thick (like those TPU + Plastic Bumper + Belt Holster ones).

    I have a Seidio case... nfc and wireless charging works fine but it didn't work at one of the regular readers with the case on- i didn't have time to try it without the case because there was a line

    Just wondering if anyone else has been having any trouble or has been smooth sailing?

    So far using Samsung Pay has been struggle. I haven't been able to use MST payments. The phone interacts with the reader but the payment can't be completed "invalid card number" .
    Adding my card was a nightmare in itself. I ended up doing it twice after having to reset the app due to above problem. I had to call Bank of America a total of four times just to get my card verified (10-20minutes on the phone each call). Been on the phone with Samsung and so far they don't have any explanations...

    I know it's in beta, so I hope this get ironed out before the end of the month.

    Sorry to hear about your problems. For me, it's been smooth sailing. Adding my BOA card was easy. Just took a picture of it and it filled in the CC number and name automatically. All payments have worked flawlessly so far. The only thing I hope they fix is providing some type of on-screen indicator that the payment went through. Currently it does nothing on the screen to indicate it succeeded. The only way I know it worked is the payment terminal proceeds to the next step of the payment sequence.

    I finally got the invitation today to be a beta tester.

    After I read about Samsung Pay in Korean news and blogs last month, I had to have it!
    I have been a long time Verizon unlimited data plan owner and it was not an easy decision to leave Verizon and stop using my free iPhone. However, the attraction to Samsung pay was strong enough for me to switch to T-mobile. I ordered a S6 via T-mobile customer service and I have had the phone for about a week now.
    I had signed up for the beta program even before I received the phone in the mail. But the invitation didn't come. I signed up again and again and again and finally today, the invitation email was on my phone. Bravo!
    I updated the phone which took close to 30 min and added a US bank debit card. And I had a chance to use it at Walmart after getting my flat tire repaired. It worked smoothly as expected and like magic!!
    I cannot wait to add my Chase sapphire preferred card on it so that I can start collecting Ultimate reward points again!!

    Addendum: I used it at Pizza Hut today.

    Just a little FYI for everyone. I got an error code, 635303, that wouldn't allow me to make payments. I called it into Samsung, since it's still in beta, but they had no idea what the code meant- they've never had anyone with that code before.
    Fortunately all I had to do was reload the card, so maybe it was just an issue with the BofA.

    I got my beta access on tmobile yesterday. Setting up a bank of America of America has been flawless. I have used the card on 3 different terminals. One on a VeriFone omniphone 5100 which is the number one terminal for small businesses, one on a petsmart verifone terminal which does not do chip or nfc, and on a walmart emv terminal which I cannot remember the manufacturer. In all cases it worked quickly and flawlessly. I was able to have the reader work from about 3-4 inches away from the terminal.

    The app works great for me, very smooth. The persistent slide up ui I thought would be irritating but it certainly is not. Overall it seems to be the same speed or quicker than pulling out my wallet and card.

    I think this is Samsung's killer app. Other than the camera I absolutely hate my software experience, but with the camera and Samsung pay, I am not certain I can live without until nfc terminals are the norm.

    Not quite. Some cards (depending on your Bank) will not support virtual cards yet, so they won't be able to be added to services like Samsung Pay or Android Pay.

    According Samsung's website, all US carrier versions support Samsung Pay except for Verizon. Would Pay also work in the US on a G920I or G920F? I'm looking buying a G920F from someone who has it rooted and a custom recovery on it. I would return it to 100% stock condition. Would it matter which country variant of firmware I'd flash?

    I'd say it does. I'm not 100% sure, of course, but the app would 'read' the model number and check if the country/region it was intended for has Samsung Pay released or not. You could side-load it, but unless you have an US credit/debit card, it wouldn't do much good.

    There's also the possibility that even if you clear root and bring it back to stock, if rooting tripped the Knox bit and the app checks for that, you're most likely not going to be able to use Samsung Pay (Android Pay, for instance, won't work on rooted devices).
