S8 international version


S8 international version

Hi, I bought my Galaxy S8 a while ago as an international unlocked version. The model name is SM-G950F which, I believe, is from Europe. I haven't had any problem until now, when I tried to install and use Samsung Pay. When I try to open it, it says "Unable to connect to Samsung Pay temporarily. Try again later". I did some research myself and it turns out it is not guranteed to use Samsung pay if you got an international version. 


Okay, first of all, I don't get it why it's not guranteed when I'm in the US. where Samsung pay is available. I should have been noticed about this when I got the phone, before I spent more than $600 on this.


Also, if it is 'not guaranteed', then does it mean for some phones if might work? How come it is so random? If it is available for some international version phones, how can I make it work? 


I'm a little frustrated now.


Thanks so much for you all in advance for reading and answering.
