Original topic:

Membership cards on Samsung pay watch plug in?

I'd like to add some store cards (UK based - want to add my nectar card for example) and don't see any option for this. I downloaded the Samsung Pay watch plug in to my phone, where I was able to add a debit card, but there was no option for membership cards. I assume this is only possible if I have access to the full app on my phone, which I can't seem to download anywhere.

 

Is there a solution for this? Am I being really stupid? Thanks!

That will be why. You might be aware that you can't get the Samsung Pay app on a non Samsung phone. The reason why you can't add reward cards on your Samsung watch is because the watch display is too small for a barcode to be clear enough to scan. That's why there isn't an option to add reward cards when you open Samsung Pay though the Galaxy Wearable app. I have a Samsung phone and watch but even I can't add reward cards to my watch.

Like the others have mentioned, your only option is to have the digital version of your nectar card added to Google Pay or another app.

You mean the Nectar app on my phone? I've done that and it's set up, but I was hoping to add it to my watch also

Ah that's a shame. Makes sense but also makes the watch payments far less useful if I have to go digging in my wallet for a store card anyway. Thanks for the reply.

You can get a key ring tag for nectar if that helps. I've got one and it's easier to pull out your keys. You won't need to go through your wallet if you've got your nectar card added to Google Pay. You'll just need your phone and scan the barcode that comes up when you're ready to pay. I rarely go out with my wallet these days because everything I need is on my phone (I do have a backup if something were to go wrong with my phone or I lose it etc)
