About the availability, after you add your card to one of these mobile wallets you should be able to use them in any country that receives contactless payments as long as you will be able to use your physical card at that location. For Samsung Pay, which has a terminal with a magnetic card reader.

Technology and availability

Simply you can use Apple Pay and Google Pay NFC and some of like this. Simply tap your phone in a compatible terminal and the transaction is complete.

Samsung Pepper uses a technology called NFC and Magnetic Protective Transmission (MST). When you hold the phone in a terminal, it displays a signal that imitates the magnetic pitch of a card.

This means that it works very much with all terminals, merchants do not update their sales system updates. A situation where MST will not work when you need to insert a card in a slot, like a gas station.

One interesting fact is, “Offline payments” are also supported on all of these three platforms, so you can make a limited number of transactions because of don’t have any cell or Wi-Fi signals.

Advantage: Samsung Pay


Mobile payment system protects card details using a procedure called Technonization. Once you add your card to the app, it creates a virtual account number and your actual card number is not given to the merchant. When you start and tap on your phone to pay, it sends a tokenized card number (autogenerated) and a crypt that works as a password. Card network then verify and payment process.

Before Apple can go through a payment, you must authenticate using the TouchID (fingerprint), FaceID or PIN before Apple.

But before dealing with transactions, Google Pay only needs to have your phone unlocked with phonefreen, password, pattern or PIN.

If you lose your phone, three of you can remotely delete the device which will delete all your card details.

Advantage: Apple Pay (though TouchID is still more convenient than FaceID.

Other ways to pay

  • Apple Pay: Apple Watch (in stores); IPad and Mac (for online purchase).
  • Google Pay: Some Android Wire Clocks
  • Samsung Pay: Gear Sport, S2 and S3 (But MST Support Only Gear S3).

Apple Pay (for Safari) is available for browser payments, and you have to authenticate with your fingerprint or FaceAid; You can do this from an iPhone or iPad; A MacBook Pro with Fingerprint Support; Or verify with a Mac and an iPhone or Apple Watch.

Google Pay also offers browser payouts as well as Chrome, Safari and Firefox, but many online stores do not use it anymore.

Samsung Pay and Google Pay work on 340,000 sites which use Visa checkout, if you make purchases from your phone. Chase pay users have options associated with Samsung Pay link to their wallets.

All three services also work when checking out on several apps.

Advantage: All three

Peer-to-peer payments

Apple Pay and Google Pay are the only two services that allow you to pay friends. Samsung Pay is currently not a peer-to-peer option.

With Apple Pay Cash, you can send money to contact Apple IDs via iMessage. Unfortunately, this means you’re cutting off from those who are not an Apple device. Money can be saved on your virtual card in the wallet application or you can withdraw it on your bank account. Apple Pay Cash is available for now only for the US.

You can give a phone number or email address from the Google Pay application on iOS, Android or desktop interface. (It was previously found in the Google Pay Sender application.) Like Apple’s Pay, you can keep a balance or move to your bank account.

Receive or pay payments from friends on Google Pay are coming soon to users in the United States and the UK.

For Apple users, your only choice in the real world is Apple Pay when Android users use Google Pay. Samsung owners can choose between Samsung Pace or Google Pay – you can have both on your phone, but if you want to use another you have to set it as default and change it.

For perfect compatibility across a broad range of terminals, Samsung won the pay because of MST technology.
