What is a digital wallet?

A digital wallet is a contactless form of payment which allows you to use your smart phone to check-out at a payment terminal.  Read our article on digital wallets to learn more.

 

How do digital wallets work?

First, you'll need to add your debit or credit card to your device's digital wallet, either Apple Pay®, Google Pay™ or Samsung Pay®.  The steps are a bit different in each case, but you'll need to open the payment app on your phone and follow the instructions to add your method pf payment.  Once a form of payment is added, you are ready to use your smart phone at in-store point-of-sale, in apps or online to check-out.

 

Where are digital wallets accepted?

Many merchant payment terminals are now equipped to accept a digital wallet payment, but look for the contactless payment symbol to be sure.  Then you simply tap and pay. (Some merchants pay prompt for a PIN.)
