    I just really don't understand what the problem is. It scans from the phone and asks me for my pin so I put it in. Everything seems to be going fine and then boom "transaction declined" or "Please use other form of payment". I have a Bank of America credit card that works fine so I know it works somehow, its just that I try to keep the credit card low balance to improve my credit so i try to use my debit card.

    Ive seen people suggest charging my debit card as credit but then I ask why? Why do I have to charge my debit as credit? That's not mentioned in the Samsung Pay directions as far as I'm concerned.

    And yeah I did contact PNC bank to see if the trouble was on their side but they claim that they don't even see the declined transactions that were declined. So now I'm stuck in a disappointing limbo where I can't use my main source of payment: the debit card. Any suggestions or similar experiences?

    just curious: why don't you want to use your credit card in lieu of a debit card, esp if that will solve the problem you are having with the debit transactions.

    Make sure you use the pin number that is from your actual physical debit card. Not the pin for Samsung pay. This has caused confusion in the past. If you are using your debit card pin, call your bank and see if they can help.

    I have used my PNC debit card since March. I have never been asked for a pin. It is just charged as a credit card.

    With PNC you have to force the terminal to process it as credit. It has never worked for me as debit. Ever.

    Interesting, I have PNC also and just tried samsung pay on the Gear S3 Frontier and I'm running into the same issues. I haven't tried forcing it to Credit, but I may. PNC works great with Android Pay, I'll let everyone know what happens when I try to use credit.

    Finally I'm not the only one having this same problem! Here is my story. When I bought the Note 7 I started using Samsung Pay for my PNC debit card. For the for the first two months it was working when using it as debit. The only store giving me issues was Walmart. When I had to get the S7 Edge due to the recall of the Note 7 the debit card was still working as debit on the new phone. Some time early November when Samsung Pay had gotten two updates I couldn't use the card as debit anymore.. From then till now I can only Use my PNC debit card as credit. This can be a big problem because if I need to take out money from my account at the registers I can't do it now... I tried going on Samsung Pay's site for answers and there was nothing. Tried my bank and they didn't know anything either. This is total bull**** now because I need to use my debit card as debit. Not as credit. It defeats the purpose of being able to get money from the account...

    I too am having this problem with my PNC debit card transactions using Samsung pay. I have not tried running the card as credit, because I want to get cash back. I wind up pulling the card out of my wallet to complete the transaction. I find this to be an annoyance.

    I'm having this problem too! It's very weird. I was at Walmart and used my S3 frontier and it accepted it, entered my PIN and then it said declined. Had to pull out my card and manually do it.
