How do I add my PNC card to Samsung Pay?
PNC customers using an eligible Samsung mobile device will use the Samsung Pay app to add and manage their credit and debit cards. To add your first card to Samsung Pay, you will open the Samsung Pay app and follow the simple installation process. To add a card, touch the “Add Card” button at the bottom of the screen and use the device camera to capture your card information or type it in manually.
How do I verify my card for Samsung Pay?
For security reasons, you may be asked to provide extra verification to activate the cards you’ve added to Samsung Pay. To verify your card, simply tap on the desired card within the Samsung Pay app to view the card detail page, and select the “sign into card issuer’s app” option. This will direct you to the PNC Mobile Banking app, or the Google Play store if you do not have the app already installed. Once you log in using your Online Banking credentials, you will be guided through the verification process. Once completed, your 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 strip card readers. To make an in-store payment, simply swipe up from the bottom of the screen on your eligible device to activate Samsung Pay. The 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 strip reader where you would typically swipe your card. A confirmation message on the payment terminal will let you know your purchase was successful.
How will Samsung Pay keep my information protected?
With Samsung Pay, your card information is never stored on the physical device or shared with the merchant. When you make a purchase, a digital account number along with a dynamic, transaction specific code is used to process your payment. This means that your actual credit or debit card number is never transmitted with the payment to the merchant.

When a PNC credit or debit card enrolled in Samsung Pay expires or is replaced due to loss, theft, fraud or chip card upgrade, PNC will automatically update your card information in Samsung Pay within two (2) business days from when your replacement card is activated. To update Samsung Pay and not wait the two (2) business days for the automatic update, manually remove the existing card and add the new card to the Samsung Pay app.
What happens if I replace, update or lose my Samsung Pay device?
If you replace or update your Samsung mobile device, your PNC debit and credit card(s) enrolled in Samsung Pay will not be automatically transferred to the new device. You will need to set up Samsung Pay again and add your cards to the new device.
If your Samsung Pay device is ever lost or stolen, you can use Samsung Find My Mobile to remotely suspend or delete your PNC debit and credit cards from Samsung Pay, or call PNC using the number found on the back of your card to suspend it for you. You can continue to make purchases using your physical card even when the device account number is suspended for Samsung Pay.
Why does my card image in Samsung Pay look different from my physical card?
Your card image in Samsung Pay is a digital representation of your physical PNC credit or debit card. The image you see in Samsung Pay may not be an exact copy of your PNC card.
Samsung Pay is a convenient new mobile payments service that lets you use your eligible Samsung device to make purchases almost anywhere you can swipe or tap your card. When you're ready to check out, simply look for the contactless payments symbol or the magnetic stripe reader where you normally swipe your card.
If you see this symbol at checkout, just hold your Samsung Pay device in front of the secure reader to send your payment. If the merchant uses a traditional magnetic card stripe reader, just place the back of your Samsung Pay device against the area where you would typically swipe your card. A message on the payment terminal will let you know your payment was successful.
