Samsung Pay and Lydia: general information

Updated 1 month ago by Clifford Christophe

Using Lydia, Samsung Pay lets you pay contactless in any store using your Android mobile phone.

How it works 🤔

Samsung Pay uses Samsung devices' integrated NFC (Near Field Communication) chips to perform contactless payments in every store equipped with traditional card terminals. To pay contactless, you only need to:

  1. Unlock your device using biometric authentication or a PIN-code
  2. Approach it from the payment terminal (the NFC chip automatically detects it and performs the payment)
  3. That's it, your purchase is paid for !

Samsung Pay payments are far more secured than contactless credit card payments. Hence, there is no amount limit with contactless mobile payment.

Secure Payments 🔐

Card numbers are masked by Samsung Pay: they are never stored on the device nor transmitted to any retailers during the payment process. No thief can steal it and use it to debit your account.
