We are pleased to announce today that Samsung Pay is now available to Starling customers. (You might have guessed it!) We’ve always been committed to making it as easy and accessible to pay with Starling as possible and as a requested addition to our offering we’re pleased to be making this available to you. You can find out more on our website: https://www.starlingbank.com/samsung-pay/ but here is some useful info on Samsung Pay and how it works:
Samsung Pay is easy to use. Customers launch it by swiping up from the bottom edge of
their smartphone screen. They can use iris, fingerprint or PIN to prove their identity, and
simply tap their device on a payment terminal to make a payment. Samsung Pay allows
customers to use contactless payment for transactions over £30, subject to merchant
policies. Samsung Pay also offers exclusive functionality with TfL, that allows users to set a
payment card up as ‘transport card’ to use on all TfL services and most National Rail
services in London, allowing them to simply tap their phone against the card reader,
eliminating the need to wake their phone.
Samsung Pay is currently available on the Galaxy S9, S9+, S8, S8+ and Note 8, S7 and S7
edge, S6, S6 edge and S6 edge+**, A3, A5 2017, as well as the Samsung Gear S3 &
Samsung Gear Sport smartwatches (**via software update).
