Samsung pay card added verified
After your card is added to Samsung Pay, it will be verified by the payment card network (i.e., Visa, MasterCard, or American Express) and the card issuer (e.g., Bank of America, Citibank, or U.S. Bank). On average, verification will take approximately 5 to 10 minutes. During that time, you will be unable to use your card in Samsung Pay.

Note: You can continue to add cards while others are being verified.

After the card is verified, it can be used immediately to make a purchase.
