Hi all, I'm with Barclays Bank so the bank is not compatible with Samsung pay. I've added my card on the phone via NFC and that works fine for contactless payments. I've tried to set up NFC on my watch but states the bank I'm with is not compatible. As I've got it working on the phone is there a way to set it up on my watch?

Hey Calv, hope you're having a good day.

I've checked the supported banks list, and Barclays isn't mentioned as being supported:

https://www.samsung.com/uk/samsung-pay/faq/

Google Pay (and to my knowledge, Apple Pay) have the same problem with Barclays being unavailable. Likely because they want people using their own app.

I don't know the specifics so this is speculation, but there will likely be a revenue implication, so it makes sense that some banks (see also Virgin) don't want to use third-party payment services when they can provide their own. Makes me wonder if it's the same general principle as the Epic/Apple lawsuit that just wrapped up.

You need to download Curve app and apply for Samsung pay + card , you then link your bank card to it and it'll work on watch ,
