Why use Samsung Pay?

Samsung Pay allows you to make quick and secure payments from your Samsung devices.

It’s easy. No need to juggle a wallet with multiple cards and cash. Just speed through purchases using your phone.

You can set up your Starling card as a ‘transport card’ to use on TFL services. This option means you don’t even need to wake your phone to pay – simply touch the middle section of your phone against the card reader.

Many shops, restaurants and other retailers accept Samsung Pay payments over £30*.

Please note: mobile wallet functionality may not be available to all customers.

*Payment limit subject to retailer.

  • How do I make my Starling debit card the default card?

    The last card you viewed in Samsung Pay will automatically appear as your default card the next time you open the app. However it is possible to set your Starling card as your default card in settings.
  • What if I lose my mobile phone?

    With Samsung Pay, each transaction is covered by your bank’s fraud protection and authenticated by your fingerprint, pin number or iris scan. Tokenisation adds an extra layer of security. It creates a unique randomised set of numbers to be used at each new transaction, so your real card number is never used from your phone.
    If you lose your phone or it’s stolen, use Samsung’s Find My Mobile service to find it. The cards and payment information on Samsung Pay will remain safe and secure, but you also have the option of disabling cards remotely. You can also temporarily prevent unauthorised Samsung Pay transactions by blocking your Starling Bank card - just contact us via webchat or email and we’ll block it for you.
