FirstMerit provides Apple Pay for MasterCard debit and credit card holders

By Verdict Staff

FirstMerit is offering Apple Pay for consumer, privatebank and business MasterCard debit and credit cards customers having a compatible Apple device.

The offer will enable a purchase to be made directly from a contactless payment device on an iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, Apple Watch, iPad Air 2 or iPad mini 3, thereby restricting participating retailers and in-app merchants to see any bank or account information.

Purchases will be authorised with a fingerprint scan on the device, and debit and credit card numbers will not be stored on the device.

FirstMerit will not charge any fees for the Apple Pay transactions.

FirstMerit chief marketing officer Julie Tutkovics said: "FirstMerit is excited to offer such secure convenience to our customers.

"The numbers of mobile payment transactions and the people making those transactions continue to grow. To accommodate our customers’ needs, we are giving them an easy-to-use tool to help make purchases faster and safer than ever."
