It's possible Barclays Bank does not support Samsung Pay / Samsung Wallet unfortunately.
Perhaps Google Pay / Google Wallet would be a suitable interim option @cezar0408

The advice I offer is my own and does not represent Samsung’s position.

Barclays app is easy to use for contactless payments
However, the Samsung wallet is more user friendly and also convenient. But it does not support my Barclays debit card.
On Samsung wallet you don't have to enter a pin as long as you've entered your phone pin. Whereas on Barclays app you have to enter a pin to make a contactless payment.
Samsung wallet is more convenient as all my store loyalty cards are saved in the app too make so using it for payments as well does make sense.
Initially, I tried registering my Barclays debit card via Samsung wallet and it did not work.
Via the Samsung wallet I then opened a Curve Account and linked my Barclay card via that and it worked. You should find Curve link within Samsung Wallet.
I successfully used my Barclay card via Samsung Wallet a couple of times ONLY due to Curve. I have Barclays App notifications setup for each time it is used. The notification was that I had spent money with Curve not the name of store which is frustrating cos you lose traceability of where you've spent your money via Barclays. However you can see store names in the Curve App.
After a couple of times of successful use, my Barclay card stopped working on all of sudden my payments were being declined at the counter. It would appear Barclays blocked the use of the card via Samsung wallet / Curve.
Barclays is Visa
But when you create an account via Curve they give you a Mastercard
It's weird cos you spend with Mastercard bit have a Visa card linked. I can see why Barclays blocked for this reason.
This is really frustrating.
As mentioned, the Samsung Wallet is more user friendly and convenient than the Barclays app.
So annoying Barclays block the use of Samsung wallet. I do not understand why Barclays say on their website their cards support Samsung wallet.... this is either outdated info, a mistake or lie.
I wish Barclays would sort this out so Samsing wallet can be used.
