The official Samsung Wallet app which is available at ‘Samsung Galaxy apps’ or ‘Google Play Store’ supports devices like Galaxy S3, Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note or Galaxy Note II. Users will need to sign in to their Samsung Wallet in order to start collecting the Stamp Cards. These Stamp Cards are created using an electronic stamp that has five contact points on the bottom. Stamping it on the Samsung Wallet app will automatically create a Stamp Card.

The electronic stamp creates about 200,000 different electronic patterns according to the pattern values. Billions of different electronic stamps can be generated as per the order of the electronic patterns. The stamp patterns can hence be classified and perceived by brand and store.


It must be noted that in order to create the Stamp Cards, the stores must be affiliated with the Samsung Wallet. The main aim of the app is to minimize the need of carrying physical loyalty cards in you wallet that are prone to get misplaced. In addition, store owners can have database of customers’ preferences – frequently visited time and purchased products – and easily manage them.

The Samsung Wallet Stamp has been successfully tried in various stores in South Korea. There is no word about a global rollout of the new initiative from Samsung as of now.
