Pay Confidently with Samsung Pay

Pay with just a touch

Connect your Zions Bank credit or debit card to Samsung Pay and make fast, easy payments from your Galaxy S6, S6 edge, S6 edge+, or Note5 device. Samsung’s payment technology allows you to simply hover your Samsung device close to many terminals, not just the ones that offer contactless payments, to pay. With such wide acceptance, you’re on your way to wallet-free shopping.

Look for the NFC logo on merchant terminals or pay at any magnetic stripe terminal.

Keep Sensitive Information to Yourself

Samsung Pay generates a unique digital card number for every transaction. That way, your Zions Bank Visa card number is never shared with merchants. And, transactions must always be authorized by you. Simply swipe up, enter your pin or scan your fingerprint, and hover your device over the NFC device or card reader to complete a payment.

Frequently asked questions

Samsung Pay is a digital payment solution that allows you to use your compatible device to pay instead of swiping your card at the card reader. Samsung Pay is accepted at any US merchant where you can swipe or tap a card. Samsung Pay works at merchants who are NFC-enabled and at traditional mag stripe terminals, resulting in a 90%+ acceptance rate.

Samsung Pay is a contactless payment method that allows you to use your device to pay by hovering it near the terminal instead of swiping your plastic card. Samsung Pay also uses a device account number (called a token) that is provided to the merchant instead of your card number.

Almost anywhere. If a merchant terminal is NFC-enabled, Samsung Pay will use this method first and then Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST) next. MST does not require the merchant to make any changes to their terminals.

Visa consumer and small business credit cards and debit cards can be added to Samsung Pay. Commercial cards and gift cards are not eligible to be added at this time.
