Does my Samsung smartphone support Samsung Pay?

Does Samsung Pay support every bank in Singapore?
Once Samsung Pay is launched, your American Express, MasterCard and Visa cards, along with banks such as DBS/POSB, OCBC Bank and Standard Chartered, will be supported. UOB, unfortunately, is missing from the list.
Can I spend as much as I want with Samsung Pay?
Payments made via NFC, meaning payWave or PayPass, are limited to S$100 per transaction. Fortunately, if you're looking at a weekly grocery run that costs more than S$100, you can still use Samsung Pay on normal credit card terminals as there's no transaction limit with MST.
Show me where I can tap and pay with Samsung Pay
Oh boy, this is going to be a long list. But safe to say, any stores that already accept your credit cards will support Samsung Pay. Think grocery stores like NTUC, Cold Storage or retailers such as Challenger, Harvey Norman. Trust us, you can use Samsung Pay almost anywhere.
Well, except for hawker centres, where cash is still king.
