Should have chosen swipe card.

Samsung Pay uses magnetic secure transmission (MST) when the phone is held against one of these registers. The phone emits a magnetic signal that simulates the magnetic strip found on the back of a credit or debit card.

I tried it before at OG Orchard. The cashiers there were well trained with Samsung pay and did it with no problems.
Just tried a transaction at challenger Tiong Bahru Plaza for amount $315 and the MST method didn't work. the screen says insert or swipe card. any thoughts?
"Insert or swipe card" phrase is generic to start with a purchase. When you see this phrase, simply tap the samsung pay at the magnetic swipe area, you will be prompted to enter the value of the sales.

Challenger outlets support samsung pay, you might be scanning at the wrong position, thus causing an error.
