I have an A71 in UK .Google Wallet on my phone pops up, my card is already there. However there is no plus mark next to the card ( in other fixes I have seen ) there is no way to add the card to to the phone. I have seen on this forum that they are different apps ,thus you have to add the card to the phone .. whihc you cant do , as it tells you to look at your phone. I have reset the watch, re added the card on my phone whne the watch tells me to do so . It worked with no issues on my Ticwatch Pro ... but now on this phone, i get nothing .
I can't add a card to Samsung pay ( not many places here take that anyway ) but it says I'm not in the region allowed to use Samsung pay ! . I have used google pay/wallet for many years so i know it works .
I have no VPN enabled on my phone ( the only one I have is google )
Ive now added the card with no issues. What did I do ? put the watch back in the box . and was about to send it back for a refund. .. i thought i will give it a try again .... and it worked. So all these problems seem to be " bad luck" than any software giant fighting
