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 and use the device camera to capture your card information or type it in manually.
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.
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, authenticate by scanning your fingerprint, iris or face, 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.
With Samsung Pay, your card information is never stored on the physical device or shared with the merchant when you shop. When you make a purchase, a digital account number along with a dynamic, transaction specific code is used to process your payment.

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.
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.
