More than a Mobile Wallet



Mobile Wallet platforms like Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Samsung Pay process transactions using a virtual card number that is different from your actual credit or debit card number. This offers an extra layer of protection to safeguard your account. Payments are also authorized using your unique thumbprint or passcode.


Using mobile wallet platforms offers more than just safety and convenience. Many merchants are encouraging customers to pay with their phone’s mobile wallet by allowing customers to order ahead when paying for their purchase with a mobile wallet. Stores such as Best Buy and Starbucks have been able to lead the quick-service market with the incentive for customers to pay ahead using their Apple Pay, Google Pay, or Samsung Pay. Next time you order within a merchant app, search for payment options of Apple Pay, Google Pay, or Samsung Pay to see if it allows you to order ahead and save time! 


Samsung Pay customers are reaping even more rewards just for using the payment platform. The more a customer uses Samsung Pay, the more rewards they receive. Customers earn points for every qualifying purchase and can use the points they earn to purchase gift cards and merchandise from a catalog of items.
