Samsung Pay in app terms

Important things to know before adding NAB cards

Dated: 01 Mar 2018

  • The terms and conditions that apply to your card, card details and contactless readers, and Samsung’s terms and conditions, will also apply to the use of your card details through Samsung Pay wallet.
  • Keep your Samsung device and Samsung device code secure. Never store your Samsung device code on or with the Samsung device. Don’t let anyone else register their biometric identifier (eg. fingerprint) to your device. Don’t share your Samsung device and/or code with anyone. Choose a Samsung device code that’s easy for you to remember and hard for others to guess. Don’t use the same code as you do for your other banking or anything obvious, like your date of birth. Not keeping your Samsung device and code secure may mean you’re liable for unauthorised transactions. If you think the security of your Samsung device code or device has been compromised, call us immediately.
  • If you have another wallet selected as the default contactless payment method on your Samsung device, you may need to select Samsung Pay as your default method of contactless payment on your Samsung device. Use your Samsung device’s settings to select your default contactless payment method.
  • If your Samsung device hasn't connected to a cellular or wireless internet connection for a prolonged period of time, Samsung Pay may not work and there may be a delay in time before Samsung Pay works once a connection has been re-established.

Additional cardholders are able to register their card for Samsung Pay.

  • An additional cardholder can set up and use Samsung Pay even if Samsung Pay isn't used by the primary cardholder.

How do I make a Samsung Pay purchase?

Before you get started, remember:

  1. When you first set up Samsung Pay you are prompted to set up a Samsung Pay device code and then nominate your preferred verification method/s (which may include a biometric identifier, like a fingerprint, for your Samsung device). This code must be set up before you can enrol NAB Visa cards in the Samsung Pay app. When selecting device codes please choose something different from your NAB card PIN or other banking passcodes.
  2. Never share your Samsung device with anyone else to help avoid unauthorised use of your NAB Visa cards. Don’t let anyone else register their biometric identifier (eg. Fingerprint) to your device.
  3. Your NAB Visa card should be the “default” card on your Samsung Pay App and Samsung device for payments to be made using the NAB Visa card. For information on how to make your NAB Visa card the “default” card, please refer to the Samsung Pay FAQs.
  4. If prompted by the payment terminal for a PIN code, enter the PIN for your NAB Visa card (not your Samsung Pay device code).
  5. If you have another wallet selected as the default contactless payment method on your Samsung device, you may need to select Samsung Pay as your default method of contactless payment on your Samsung device. Use your Samsung device’s settings to select your default contactless payment method.
  6. If your Samsung device has not connected to a cellular or wireless internet connection for a prolonged period of time, Samsung Pay may not work and there may be a delay in time before Samsung Pay works once a connection has been re-established.

For information on how to make payments please refer to the Samsung Pay FAQs.

How do I remove cards from Samsung Pay?

You can remove or delete a card from the Samsung Pay service by using the Samsung Pay app on your paired smartphone. Please refer to the Samsung device FAQs to understand how to remove or delete cards.

As a primary cardholder, you'll only be able to remove an additional/secondary cardholder's access to Samsung Pay by removing the additional/secondary cardholder from your account altogether. To remove the additional/secondary cardholder, please contact NAB on 13 22 65 from 8am - 7pm Mon-Fri, or 9am - 6pm on weekends (AEST/AEDT) or +61 3 8641 9083 if you're overseas.

Can additional cardholders use Samsung Pay?

Additional cardholders of personal cards are able to register their card for Samsung Pay:

  • An additional cardholder can set up and use Samsung Pay even if Samsung Pay is not used by the primary cardholder.
  • An additional cardholder can register for Samsung Pay before the primary cardholder does. The primary cardholder will only be able to remove an additional cardholder's access to Samsung Pay by removing the additional cardholder from the account altogether. If you wish to remove the additional cardholder please contact NAB on 13 22 65 from 8am - 7pm Mon-Fri, or 9am - 6pm on weekends (AEST/AEDT) or +61 3 8641 9083 if you're overseas.
  • Where primary and additional cardholders share the same card number, the additional cardholder can only make Samsung Pay purchases under $100. For purchases of $100 or more, the additional cardholder will need to switch to using their physical card.

How do I view my transactions and receipts?

There will be no changes to how transactions will appear on NAB Internet Banking, NAB Mobile Internet Banking or customer statements.

You can view the last ten transactions using the Samsung Pay app on your paired smartphone. This will show you the merchant name, date and amount.

You cannot see any transaction details on your Samsung Pay device other than a success message when the payment is completed, unless your chosen Samsung Pay device is your paired smartphone.

As normal, a primary cardholder can view all of your additional/secondary cardholders transactions by checking the last four digits of the card number displayed beneath each transaction on your cardholder statements, NAB Internet Banking or NAB Mobile Internet Banking.

When you enrol for Samsung Pay your device is allocated a virtual card number. For added security, this is used for contactless purchases instead of your physical card number. The last four digits of the digital card number will appear on receipts for Samsung Pay purchases, and allow you to identify which virtual card number belongs to which device if you have more than one device registered for Samsung Pay.

What happens if my Samsung device or NAB Visa card is lost or stolen?

No one can use your Samsung device to make payments unless you’ve entered your chosen personal device code or verification method. No one will be able to access your personal banking details as they are not stored on the device.

If you lose your Samsung device, you can still make contactless transactions using your physical NAB Visa card. If that’s the case you’ll need to use your card PIN for transactions of $100 or more.

If you misplace or lose your Samsung device, you can delete the NAB Visa card from the Samsung app on your paired smartphone. If your paired smartphone is the Samsung device you chose to use Samsung Pay on and you lose this paired smartphone, you can log into Find My Mobile with your Samsung account to reset your device which will delete your card(s) in Samsung Pay. If you delete the card, you'll need to re-enrol it. For further information, please refer to the Samsung Pay FAQs.

A secondary cardholder removing their Samsung Pay service won't affect the primary cardholder's use of Samsung Pay.

If your card is lost or stolen, you can block your card immediately in the NAB Mobile Banking App, NAB Internet Banking or by calling us on 1800 033 103 (within Australia) or +61 3 8641 9121 (from overseas), 24 hours, 7 days a week. When your card is blocked you won’t be able to use it for Samsung Pay. But as soon as your new physical card is delivered, you can re-enrol it for Samsung Pay and start using it for contactless payments.

What happens if I suspect fraud?

The Samsung device is protected by your chosen device code or biometric identifier (eg. fingerprint). This needs to be entered to enable the Samsung device to be used to make transactions. Please refer to the Samsung device FAQs.

If you suspect fraud on your account please contact us immediately on 13 22 65 (or +61 3 8641 9083 if you're overseas). We (NAB) will follow the usual process to resolve any fraudulent or suspicious transactions.

If you're giving your device to someone else you’ll need to factory reset it to erase apps and all personal data from the device. Please refer to the Samsung Pay FAQs. You may be liable for any transactions not made by you if you shared your Samsung device.

How do I reverse or dispute a transaction?

The process is the same as any other NAB Visa card transaction refund or reversal. First speak to the merchant, as each merchant’s return policy does vary.

To dispute a purchase made using Samsung Pay contact NAB on 13 22 65 from 8am - 7pm Mon-Fri, or 9am - 6pm on weekends (AEST/AEDT) or +61 3 8641 9083 if you're overseas. Alternatively you can also dispute a Samsung Pay transaction using Internet Banking and Mobile Internet banking app.

What are my spending limits?

For a NAB Visa Debit Card the limit of your spend is determined by cleared funds available in the NAB account you are accessing.

For a NAB Visa Credit Card, the limit of your spend is determined by the credit limit for your NAB credit card account as well as how much of that limit is available for use.

Separate limits cannot be set specifically for Samsung Pay purchases. Important: Some merchants may set their own transaction limits for contactless purchases.
