Hi,

 

Samsung Pay doesn't open/work for me on my 1 week old Samsung Galaxy S20 5G

 

When i start it i get a german message for some reason

 

Bezahl mit Swipe

Leider ist dein Samsung

Smartphone derzeit fur

Samsung Pay nicht

zugelassen

translated to

Pay with a swipe
Unfortunately your Samsung is
Smartphone currently for
Samsung Pay doesn't
authorized

 

No idea why the message is in german! phone was bought in a uk store at a samsung official seller

 

I also have the galaxy watch 3 but i assume that needs it to work on the phone first before i use it?

does Samsung Pay not work in the uk?

shall i just use google pay?

 

Many thanks

Hatem

it's not that samsung doesn't work its just samsung doesn't have many supported banks which is no fault of samsung more the banks. Google pay is more supported so I'd say Google pay.

I know that if the phone has ever been rooted or bootloader unlocked then Samsung Pay will never work.

This has also happens to me. Thing is you can even get past that message. I think this is just broken. I say just use Google pay. It works better.
