How to pay using Samsung Wallet
Once you have added your Aafaq Credit Card or Prepaid Card to Samsung Wallet, you can pay with these three simple steps:
1. Swipe up
Swipe up from the bottom of the display (from the home screen or lock screen) to open Samsung Wallet. Your default credit or prepaid card will show up on the screen. If you have multiple cards set up, simply swipe left or right to switch to the card you wish to use.
Tap the fingerprint or iris button if you have Samsung Wallet secured with the biometric sensor, or the "PIN" button if you want to enter your PIN. If you have Samsung Wallet secured via the fingerprint sensor, simply tap the sensor with your finger and the payment mode will activate.
Touch the back of the phone to the payment terminal or card machine. You might need to touch the phone to the side of the card machine in some cases. You have 30 seconds to do so, but if time runs out, simply repeat step 2. You can stop touching the phone to the payment terminal or card machine once your card has been detected. You may be required to enter your card’s PIN on the terminal or card machine to authorise the payment.
