So, this is an answer to "Thank you"? So in this context, could it mean "Same to you.", but not as an answer to "Have a nice day." ? We use "Same to you" more generally.

It is used just like "You're welcome" in English.

From what my girlfriend who is from Medan states, she said saying sama-sama is basically saying "same" or "back at you" "same to you". Not Your welcome. so basically sama-sama could be used as a response to someone saying thank you to mean your welcome. but in another example it could be used below.

Friend: Aku suka jeruk (i like oranges) You: Sama-Sama (same)
