You don’t leave your house without your phone – it can do just about anything you need. From taking pictures to playing music to checking your email, you use it throughout the day. Did you know your smartphone can also replace your credit card?
It can when you use a mobile wallet.
What is a mobile wallet?
A mobile wallet is just what it sounds like: a “wallet” that is on your mobile device. Through an app on your phone (or even your tablet or smartwatch) you store credit card information – which means you can leave your purse or billfold at home and make your purchases even more convenient.
Why use a mobile wallet?
It’s easy. It’s secure. You can store all of your credit card information in one place.
Mobile wallets can be used with apps such as:
- Apple Pay
- Samsung Pay
- Google Pay
We know you’re busy. That’s why this simple and secure way to make your business purchases – and add up any credit card rewards – is a smart choice.
How does a mobile wallet work?
When you choose the mobile wallet app you want, setting it up is easy.
- Add your cards in just seconds: Download and open the app of your choice on your eligible mobile device and add your favorite cards. You can enter credit cards, debit cards and rewards cards.
- Make purchases faster and easier: Use your device to make payments online or at a digital payment-enabled terminal at millions of participating stores nationwide.
- Enjoy added security: Information that you store in a mobile wallet is encrypted, which makes it potentially safer than carrying physical credit cards with you. You can set a strong pass code and enable fingerprint authentication if your device is lost or stolen.
