I have been using Google Pay for years but thought I'd give Samsung Pay+ a go as my Halifax Visa debit cards cannot be used with Samsung Pay directly. 😶
Everything is setup correctly (I think), if I open the Samsung Pay app I see a black Mastercard with Samsung Pay+ written on it (card issued by Samsung Pay+ and Curve which then debits my Visa card?). I was in a shop today and tried to pay but it wouldn't work! I got a notification telling me something along the lines of "Your default travel card can only be used for PAY GO". What the hell does that mean?
With Google Pay I just unlock my phone and tap. This Samsung Pay is full of extra steps and work arounds and it still doesn't work for me.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I've read all that prior to posting and setting up Samsung Pay+.
So this was the exact notification I got:
Transport cards can only be used for Pay as you go. Swipe up to open Samsung Pay and use biometric or PIN verification to complete this purchase.
I unlocked my phone and tapped but got the above. I didn't originally open the Samsung Pay app but did after reading the above notification and when I had my payment card on screen (with the countdown counting down) I tapped, nothing happened at that point!
Anyway, what is a Transport card? I don't own, need or want one and I definitely didn't set one up!
Ah thanks... I couldn't find the toggle option for the life or death of me!
Transport card is now disabled. 👍
