Huntington Bancshares, a Columbus-based bank holding company, has revealed its plans to offer Apple Pay allowing consumers to use their iPhones to make purchases at stores and restaurants.

Apple Pay, which is to be rolled out in January, will allow the bank customers to store and use their Huntington VOICE credit card and Huntington debit card in a digital, tokenized form with the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

The service that enables in-store and in-app purchases with a single touch using Touch ID will present a private and secure payment environment without giving any credit or debit card or account information to the store or payment processor.

Huntington executive vice president and director of payments and channels Mark Sheehan said: "Apple Pay is another in a series of initiatives Huntington has undertaken to make banking easier, along with rolling out mobile deposit and Quick Balance, which allows customers to use their phones or tablets to find their balances fast.

"Huntington is excited about what the future holds and looks forward to bringing this technology to our customers."
