How to use Samsung Pay 

You can use your GECU credit and debit card(s) with Samsung Pay at many of your favorite retail stores.

  1. Look for the contactless payment symbol at checkout and hold your phone near the contactless reader when it’s time to pay.
  2. Use Samsung Pay for in-app or online purchases.
  3. Send or request money to/from friends or start a group to share expenses, such as: rent, dinner, and more.
  4. Earn rewards and purchase, send, or receive gift cards right in the app.

An extra layer of security 

When you use Samsung Pay, rest assured:

  • Tokenization creates a unique randomized set of numbers used for each new transaction, so your actual card number and details are never stored or used from your phone. 
  • If your phone is lost or stolen, use the Find My Mobile feature to remotely lock it or erase your Samsung Pay account. 
  • When you use Samsung Pay, each transaction is authenticated by your fingerprint, iris scan, or PIN. 
  • The same credit and debit card fraud protection carries over to Samsung Pay.

Samsung Pay will work with GECU credit and debit cards.

The last card you made a purchase within Samsung Pay will automatically be slotted as the default card the next time you open the app. However, you can always swipe between all the cards you have added and select a different card before making a purchase.

To return something you purchased in-store with Samsung Pay, swipe up from the home button or open the Samsung Pay app, select the card you paid with, verify your fingerprint, PIN, or iris scan, and then hover your device over the card reader to complete the return. For some returns, you might be asked for the last 4 digits of your device account number. You can find your device account number on the card details screen in your Samsung Pay app.

Please contact a GECU team member immediately to inform us. You should also mention that you added your GECU card to Samsung Pay. We can cancel your card, order a new one, and deactivate your card in Samsung Pay to ensure there is no unauthorized use of your card.

If your Samsung device is lost or stolen, you may contact Samsung Pay Support. You should also contact your mobile service provider. You may also be able to use Samsung’s Find My Mobile service to locate it and remotely disable the cards you’ve added in Samsung Pay. Please refer to the Samsung website for more information about the Find My Mobile feature.

You may find answers to your questions and contact support by visiting the Samsung Pay Support page.
