    Got an email from Samsung support which lists all the cards supported, and also has instructions to do a force stop, clear cache, and clear data. After I tried that, my problems are fixed. I was able to re-register my Amex card and attempt to pay with it. Yea!

    Here's the steps from Samsung Support:
    1. Open Apps > Settings > Applications > Application manager
    2. Touch Samsung Pay Framework
    3. Touch force stop
    4. Touch clear cache
    5. Touch Back
    6. Touch Samsung Pay
    7. Touch clear data
    8. Open Samsung Pay and attempt the action again.

    Kind of funny story... I tried using Samsung Pay at the Post Officer earlier today. As I started to put my phone on the card reader, the clerk kept saying "it's not supported". I kept it there for a couple seconds more, then it appeared to work because the screen changed. But then the clerk kept saying "no it doesn't work", and then proceeded to press a bunch of keys on his side - my guess is that he refused to accept that it worked and actually canceled the transaction. He then asked for my physical card - had to get back to work so I just gave my Amex to him. Then he mumbled something about the Post Office would never accept phone payments due to all the hacking.
    Education is going to be one of the harder things I think to convince merchants and the employees. Sammy is trying but needs more marketing to let the merchants and employees know.

    The app showed up a few minutes ago. Downloaded it and added 3 cards. I look forward to buying something tomorrow!

    I agree. I think they'll also need to let Samsung owners know it exists. We were all waiting for it and attuned to what it can do, but many -- if not most -- owners probably have no idea what it is or that it is available.

    You will love it. I've been using it since Saturday on my VZW Edge+ and it's been working great.

    Made a purchase today at Costco. The look on the cashier's face was priceless when the transaction processed successfully.

    I will have to keep my Costco card in my car because I don't carry a wallet anymore.

    Yes. He canceled it. Did you get his name off the tag? I will report him for you.
    No I didn't get his tag. Good to know about that. Anyway it's ok, he probably just didn't know. I'll let it go this time

    I bought a thin clear spigen case and slid put my driver's license in the case facing out. I'm hoping it will work and I won't have to carry my wallet around most days.

    Realized we have a self serve kiosk in the cafe with a card reader. Worked great with no issues. Now to use it in front of someone!

    Just installed Samsung Pay on my VZW Note5 and I noticed the top of the Samsung Pay app seems like it is always visible (see attachment).
    Is this really always there now?Samsung Pay on Verizon-uploadfromtaptalk1445447897703.jpg

    Yes. That's a "tab" so you can pull the cards up from the home screen. You can get rid of it in More>Settings>Simple Pay, but then you will not be able to pay from your home screen. (It gives you the option of turning the app on/off from Home screen, Lock screen, or when the screen is off.

    One more question, does anyone know if this would work with a retailer that uses Square for credit card transactions?

    NFC? Has anyone tried using Samsung Pay through the NFC reader? I was just in Whole Foods, where I've used NFC to pay via Google Wallet/Android Pay for years. When I checked out tonight, though, the payment failed, until I held the unit over the magnetic reader. (It went through fine that way.)

    I was at Walgreen's tonight, they have the NFC, but I didn't use it. I just held the S6 over the magnetic strip and it went thru.

    I have. The vending machine in my office accepts nfc payments and it worked fine there.

    Ah, a vending machine. That's a good idea. I'll try it on one.

    I'd like to get rid of the wallet as well but I have my drivers licence, employee ID card, and paper rewards cards. I had insurance cards but take photos of those (and will be checking out the CareFirst app Kalnel mentioned).

    Are there any apps like samsung pay that would work with a simple ID card and a mag reader?

    The Carefirst app is great -- you can pull up an image of your card -- but make sure you bring your paper card when you see a new doctor (and often at the first visit of the year). Many docs still can't scan or photocopy from phone screens, so they require hard copies.

    I'm hoping Samsung eventually adds reward, loyalty, and gift cards to Pay. In the meantime, Android Pay handles them well, as do apps like KeyRing.
