How do I add my PNC card to Samsung Pay?
PNC cardholders using an eligible Samsung mobile device will use the Samsung Pay app to add and manage their commercial cards. To add a commercial card to Samsung Pay, open the Samsung Pay app and follow the simple installation process. Touch the “Add Card” button at the bottom of the screen and use the device camera to capture the commercial card information, or type it in manually.
How do I verify my card for Samsung Pay?
For security reasons, cardholders will be asked to provide extra verification to activate the cards added to Samsung Pay. An SMS text message will be sent to the cardholder’s mobile device with instructions to contact a toll-free customer support number to provide additional information. Once completed, an enrollment verification text message will be sent to the cardholder device confirming enrollment. Then the card will be ready to use with Samsung Pay.
How does the one-time passcode verification process work?
Upon selecting the one-time passcode option for verification purposes, the cardholder will receive a SMS text message on their mobile device that contains a six-digit verification number. Once this number is entered within Samsung Pay, a message will be displayed on the cardholder’s mobile device confirming that the card has been activated. A second enrollment verification text message will be sent to the cardholder’s mobile device confirming enrollment. Once confirmed, the card will be ready to use with Samsung Pay.
If cardholders choose to utilize the customer support number for verification purposes, what additional information will be required?
If contacting the customer support number to complete the verification process, cardholders will be asked to provide their four-digit authorization code and their mobile device number.
The cardholder authorization code is established by the cardholder’s employer at the time of card issuance and may be the last four digits of their SSN or employee ID number. Prior to enrolling within Samsung Pay, cardholders must work with their company’s program administrator to ensure their mobile device number is added to their cardholder profile so that it can be validated during this process. Once completed, a verification text message will be sent to the cardholder’s mobile device confirming enrollment. Once confirmed, the card will be ready to use with Samsung Pay.
How do I use Samsung Pay?
Samsung Pay can be used to make in-store payments at most merchants equipped with both NFC contactless payment terminals and traditional magnetic stripe card readers. To make an in-store payment, simply swipe up from the bottom of the screen on the eligible device to activate Samsung Pay. The commercial card you added or used most recently will be displayed first, and you can easily swipe left or right to select a different card if desired. When you are ready to make a payment, place your finger on the home key to verify your fingerprint, or touch the ENTER PIN option to enter your Samsung Pay PIN. Next, simply hold your device over the NFC payment terminal, or near the magnetic stripe reader where you would typically swipe your card. A confirmation message on the payment terminal will let you know that the purchase was successful.
How will Samsung Pay keep my information protected?
With Samsung Pay, commercial card information is never stored on the physical device or shared with the merchant. When a purchase is initiated, a digital account number along with a dynamic, transaction-specific code is used to process the payment. This means that the actual commercial card number is never transmitted with the payment to the merchant.

The return process will vary by merchant. You may need to present a receipt from the merchant to return the item. To complete the return, hold your Samsung Pay device over the NFC contactless terminal or magnetic stripe card reader and wait for a confirmation message on the payment terminal that will let you know the return has been processed. You must use the same Samsung Pay-enabled device you used to purchase the item to process the return.

What should I do when I receive a replacement card?
