  2. While selecting a payment card, select Pay.
  3. Select PIN or IRIS as your authentication method, and then enter the necessary security information. If you chose the fingerprint option, simply place your finger on the fingerprint scanner on your phone.
  4. Once finished, place the back of the device against the contactless reader and perform the actions you want to complete your payment.

Kindly note that if you had intended to make use of your smartwatch instead of the mobile phone, you would be required to have it paired with the payment card first of all; to have this sorted, you need to connect your Smartwatch to your phone and then add a PIN. 

If you're a user of Samsung Pay, you could just import cards you had already added, however, if first time using Samsung Pay, you would be required to add all the cards again.
