One-handed payments are the wave of the future
Here's another smart use for your smartphone - use a Digital Wallets app to link it to your CoastHills debit or credit card. When you go to pay for products, restaurant meals, entertainment tickets or other services, just tap your phone against - or wave it over - the merchant's electronic terminal.
It's quick and secure - and it beats digging around in your pocket for cash or a check. Mobile payments are actually safer than using a physical card because your card and account numbers aren't stored. Instead, they're heavily encrypted into a unique code, which is then replaced by a token randomly generated with each use. And that token is useless and unreadable for fraudsters.
- Apple Pay: To get started, you need a supported iPhone or iPad. Simply add your CoastHills Visa® debit or credit card to the Wallet app already on your phone by tapping the plus symbol (+) on the top right, then scanning your card with your camera.
- Google Pay: First, download the Google Pay app from the Google Play store. If your CoastHills Visa® debit or credit card is already linked to your Google account, you can simply add it to the Google Pay app by confirming a few details. To add a new card, it’s as simple as taking a picture.
