Yea this issue was resolved, reset the Samsung Pay app and Samsung Pay Framework app. Just the Samsung Pay app won't do.



I factory reset my phone over the weekend, to clear some issues. I can now use Samsung Pay (with nfc off) but no transactions and points. Maybe I'll try again later
glad it works for you now

Hmm, I can't seem to find your previous post but what seems to be the issue? On my end, Samsung Pay has all permissions are given and Framework with none. NFC is left on cause it does SOOO little hurt to the battery life. If you are constantly turning off NFC, you are certainly over managing a smartphone.
Turn off NFC is meant for security reason, not for saving the battery.
Example: See below text (via Google Search)

NFC devices suffer from a risk of downloading malware or otherwise unwanted applications without the device owners knowing. If the NFC device gets close enough to another NFC device, a connection could be made and malware downloaded. This malware could then sniff your device for sensitive data such as credit card numbers, bank numbers, passwords, etc. and send them to the attacker over the web or back through the NFC channel if the devices are still within range.

Yeah, that does not happen so easily like that. There is still MULTIPLE layers of safety net to pass through to ACTUALLY install anything on the device. Even if NFC somehow managed to pass the device a URL to an installer, you will still need to MANUALLY allow the application to install by pressing the install button.

EVEN BEFORE ALL OF THAT, you have to allow applications to be installed from UNKNOWN Sources which again is a MANUAL trigger by the user themselves.

Then people are going to say, OH it is automatic and somehow installs it all. Yeah no.. things don't happen like that so easily on Mobile devices anymore.

Agreed with deathst.. there is indeed no immediate benefit from turning off nfc.

I k3ep mine on and the settings were correctly set to my preferences, example android beam off.

The annoying part is when my device keeps beeping on the cards when they are wrongfully placed below the phone.. other than that, my nfc is on because of the nfc ezlink transit..

Hi renfred,

Saw your post in the apple pay forum saying that you can add the MasterCard registered in ABT under the transit portion in samsung pay. Can share how you do it? I'm currently using nfc sim also. Don't see the option to add the MasterCard into the transit section.

Thanks.

transit option in Samsung pay is for NFC Sim ez-link.. don't think it applies to MasterCard ABT..

Try google for mastercard transit mobile payment. It can be used for apple pay, samsung pay and android pay. But must go register at any one of the 3 mrt stations. Only remember cityhall is one of them. Saw the poster before but forgot the exact details. Pai seh. Or are you not talking about this?

You can visit the apple forum for more details on the registration and setting up of mobile wallet on ABT portal. I shall not share more in this section to avoid confusion, since this is still a trial phase with limited users.

To answer your question, so long the mobile device is registered successfully, samsung pay should have a section for you to choose, "select payment card", then it will prompt you to select default NFC option, which you should choose android operating system, then samsung pay will take over the transit portion for tap and go without authentication.

Currently, samsung pay for nfc ezlink sim card offers a platform for you to see the details, but does not interfere with payment. meaning with or without samsung pay, you still can tap the nfc ezlink sim card.
