    I got a new Gear S3 Frontier and added my 2 debit cards. I used it yesterday on the S3 but it never gave me the points. It did work for the sale.

    Has anyone else seen this? I get points when I use it on my phone.

    Thanks

    It did register the sale. So you do get 40 points for each watch sale? I forgot to check the balance before so I may be ok..

    Thank You

    Used the S3 yesterday for the first time to pay (used the phone many times) and I did not get any notifications like when I use the phone. I checked the credit card and the transaction is there. If I check Samsung Pay, it does not show the transaction, only shows the ones from the phone...

    S Pay transactions done using the watch should show in the Gear Manager app on the phone when it is paired via BT with the watch.

    Says no transactions found. The CC added to the watch shows up there.

    I will make sure BT is connected next time I use it. Assuming it was since I had my phone with me just in case.

    So now when I use the phone to pay I'm not getting notifications either. Called Samsung Pay support, first they told me it was my bank, not them, I explained that it happens with all cards using different banks, so then their solution is to remove everything and re-enter all cards again. They told me to use the "reset" option inside settings. Last night I purchased a watch face from the Galaxy store and the notification came thru. What a mess...

    Anyone ever "reset" the Samsung Pay apps?

    Open Samsung pay on your phone then rewards and touch on your current level and it will pop up, so if I touch anywhere on the platinum level it pops up

    If I use SPay from the phone when the S3 is not connected thru BT everything works fine and I get notifications and the transaction is registered in SPay. Use the phone with the Gear S3 connected, the charges go thru the credit card, no notifications and SPay does not register the transaction. I'm thinking of just removing SPay from the S3...

    Huh? Why would you use S Pay on the phone when you can use it on the watch? Holding a wrist to the terminal is much more convenient than pulling out a phone.

    Because it wont register my purchase on SPay, so I get no points, and the same happens to the phone if connected, and Samsung's solution is to remove and uninstall everything and then re-install and setup, Easier to just remove from the S3... I wish Samsung would have a better solution, like try and figure out what the problem is...

    I think the purchase has to be for $5 or more to register.

    Also, be cautious about checking the Gear app to view transactions. If it says "Tap here to start using Samsung Pay" - don't. It will reset your cards and you'll have to re-enter them again. I finally learned this trick after reloading my cards about 4 times. I've had this message up for about 2 weeks and still able to use my S3 without reloading the cards.

    I haven't experienced that problem so I don't know why your purchases on the watch are not being recognized by Samsung's reward program. But I'd use S Pay even without that fringe benefit.

    We're at the cutting edge. Implementation will get better. Mobile payments can become one of the cornerstone uses of a smartwatch. And that's for starters. Door unlocking/entry is another application ideally suited for a wrist device.

    Gear continued getting worse so I did a reset. I tried restoring my settings back and the gear plugin crashed halfway so I had to reset again. Second time it restored. Even though it really misses a lot of settings. If I had to reset again I would not restore. But the good news is that spay is now working. I just added one card. Scared to add more... 😁

    If multiple transactions are made within five (5) minutes of each other, Participants will only earn points for one (1) Qualified Transaction in these circumstances.
