Well, we dont know where it started from, but someone with a review device or an early shipment of the Galaxy S7 has reported that the Verizons Galaxy S7 is not compatible with Samsung Pay on the Play Store. It simply wasnt allowing them to download it.
After reaching out to Verizon, Android Central was able to receive confirmation that Samsung Pay is, in fact, coming to the Verizon S7. The app was simply not available because it was still undergoing testing before flicking the switch and releasing the app. The Samsung Pay app is up on the Play Store now and downloadable by the Verizon S7.
Verizon executive, Jeffery Nelson, tweeted regarding this issue to clear the air once and for all.

The Samsung Pay app will be ready for users when they get their new Galaxy S7s on Verizon when the ACTUAL launch of the phone comes around on March 11.
