please check the below link with eligible Samsung devices, I can't find J series supported here in UAE, I don't think its available on J series in other countries:

Samsung pay requires additional hardware that can emulate a magnetic stripe on a conventional debit/credit card. With this hardware you can use samsung pay to pay at any terminal where a conventional card is supported. Some devices which have NFC lack this specific hardware. The payments made with NFC needs specific NFC readers other than conventional card readers. That's the reason samsung pay doesn't work on certain devices.
Samsung pay is not supported in most of the countries, and banks.

Hope samsung will add support to more banks and will extend their support to more countries.

S-pay doesnt work on the devices which support nfc only the device need to jave both nfc and mst to use gulf region version of s-pay.
