Tired of carrying around a wallet stuffed with cards? Don’t like waiting for a chip card to process? Worried about the germs on the payment terminal? Try using a mobile wallet!
What’s a Mobile Wallet?
Your smart device can do more than manage your financial accounts and make mobile deposits. Another tool at your disposal is the mobile wallet. You might have heard of mobile wallet apps such as Apple Pay®, Google PayTM or Samsung Pay®. These special apps can hold digital versions of your compatible credit and debit cards so you can use your smartphone or smartwatch to make purchases in-store or online – simply look for the logo of your mobile wallet or the contactless symbol. It’s a fast, secure and convenient way to pay.
The Benefits of Mobile Wallets
Mobile wallets come with a few advantages over their plastic counterparts:
- Payments are made in seconds by tapping or waving your smart device over the payment terminal.
- They’re more secure, for multiple reasons. One is that while it’s easy for someone to use your card if you lose it, it’s much harder for someone to use a mobile wallet on your lost (and locked) phone. Additionally, mobile wallets send a secure, single-use signal every time a payment is made, which isn’t useable even if intercepted by a thief.
- Millions of retail locations let you pay with mobile wallets, with more adding compatibility each day.
