Whether you love the user-friendliness and reliability or hate the price tag and the status symbolism they represent, you’ve got to admit: smart devices are capable of doing amazing things. With new technology, comes a whole new approach to how you do everyday tasks – such as how you pay for things.
Today’s technology has turned smart devices into a mobile wallet. A mobile wallet is a way to carry your credit card and debit card information in a digital form on your smart device. Instead of using your physical plastic card to make purchases, you can pay with your smartphone, tablet, or smartwatch. Don’t worry, your smart device can’t track your behavior based on your transactions. It simply makes purchasing easier and more secure.
- Streamline check out. With mobile purchasing, at check out, you’ll use your phone instead of swiping your card by holding your phone near the terminal and okay your purchase with a fingerprint. Signatures may still be required.
- Simple to setup. It doesn’t matter whether you have an Apple, Android, Windows, or Samsung device—the mobile wallet setup is simple with each technology. In most cases, you add cards with your phone’s camera.
- Security smarts. With mobile payments, instead of sharing your information, a virtual card number is created. That virtual number is used for purchases— keeping your data safe. Visit your phone provider website for more information on security.
