US lender Cardinal Bank has announced that its clients can now use Apple’s mobile payment platform Apple Pay for making payment with its credit and debit cards.
Apple Pay is a mobile wallet that allows customers to make purchases at participating stores with their iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch.
On adding a card to Apple Pay, actual card numbers are not stored on the device or Apple servers, and instead a unique device account number is encrypted and securely stored on the phone, thereby enhancing security.
Cardinal Bank said that customers will continue to receive all of the rewards and bene?ts that come with using its debit or credit cards.
Cardinal Bank chief operating officer Alice Frazier said: “We are very pleased to offer this new service to our clients. Apple Pay expands our mobile service offering of banking on-the-go. We continually strive to provide state-of-the-art products and services to meet our clients’ needs. Apple Pay is one example of how Cardinal Bank is leading the way with convenience banking.”
