Tap to pay not working

Google pay activates automatically when you bring it close to a reader. From the NFC settings I've chosen Samsung pay as the default for this does this too but it does not. The reason I still prefer Samsung pay is that I can disable it for public transport.

You have to open Samsung pay and use your pin or fingerprint scanner before you can tap to pay.

Yes, that's what I do now. I'm wondering why it doesn't open itself when I bring my phone near a payment terminal.

Google pay is so much better than Samsung pay for this very reason alone!


My advice comes from being a UK Samsung phone user.
Current Devices:

Samsung S21 Ultra 5G 256Gb > Model: SM-G998B/DS.
Samsung Galaxy Watch4 Classic > Model: SM-R890NZSAEUA.
Samsung Galaxy Buds2 > Model: SM-R177NZKAEUA.

Samsung One Ui 3.1.1 / Android 11.

I agree.

 

HHowever, I live in Stockholm and buy monthly public transport tickets from the SL app. The ticket appears as a QR code. The QR code scanner is very close to the NFC reader. So if I use Google pay and set it to work automatically, it gets activated by the reader and I effectively get charged twice. Google pay doesn't have the option to turn off use on public transport, unlike Samsung pay. If I simply turn Tap to pay off then Samsung pay is easier to use. That's why I'm hoping Samsung would do this.
