Your system uses a custom blade SSD which happen to be made by Samsung for Apple, while similar to a M.2 SSD it is not pin compatible. Your system has a AHCI/PCIe x4 (4 lane) interface.
 
I would recommend you stick with the correct drive made by either [https://eshop.macsales.com/shop/SSD/OWC/Air-Retina|OWC] or [https://us.transcend-info.com/apple/jetdrive_pcie|Transcend]. Both make replacement SSD's designed to work in your system.
 
Here's the IFIXIT guide to replace the SSD: [https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/MacBook+Pro+13-Inch+Retina+Display+Early+2015+SSD+Replacement/38520]
