Samsung Pay has one benefit over both its competitors that it uses magnetic secure transmission (MST). When you hold the phone against any terminal, it emits a signal that simulates the magnetic strip on a card.

Thus this also works on terminals which accept card with magnetic strip. Due to this they work on all terminals, without the merchant having to update their point of sale systems. It does not work on systems which require you to insert card in payment system.

Also all the thee support offline payment, for limited transactions.


Mobile payment systems use a technology known as tokenization to keep card details secure. It creates a virtual account number after adding card. So when you tap phone on payment terminal your virtual token is shared with merchant. Thus your personal card details remain secure.

There are different authentication methods used by the three tech giants. You can authenticate payment using TouchID , FaceID or PIN if you own iPhone. If you have Samsung device then you can authenticate payment using iris scanner, fingerprint or PIN. In case of Google Pay your phone needs to be unlocked with pattern, pin or fingerprint scanner for payments.

All three allow you to remotely wipe the device including card details, in case you loose your phone.
