FNB has announced that it now accepts Apple Pay, allowing consumers to link their credit and debit cards to the Apple Wallet.
According to a statement released on Tuesday, over one million customers utilize the iOS version of the FNB App, which allows them to connect their card to Apple Pay or simply open the Wallet app to add FNB cards (3 August).
FNB Payments chief Raj Makanjee said the bank’s Credit, Debit, and Fusion cardholders are adopting contactless payments in droves. Between March and April of this year, FNB consumers conducted almost 30 million contactless transactions in a row, totalling R10 billion.
Apple Pay, according to Chris Labuschagne, CEO of FNB Card, will expedite the implementation of contactless payments for clients, and it is accessible to all FNB clients with supported Apple devices.Once Apple Pay is installed on the smartphone, it may be used to make safe and secure payments right away.
FNB now has over 300,000 FNB Virtual Cards on our new issuing infrastructure, with over R600 million in expenditure, and Apple Pay is the most recent customer-centric digital innovation.
Customers may easily set up Apple Pay on their iPhones by selecting ‘Cards’, creating a new Virtual Card particularly for Apple Pay or selecting an existing Virtual Card, then selecting ‘Add to Apple Wallet’ and following the steps.
Apple Pay allows you to conveniently pay for things such as grocery deliveries, make online shopping transactions and much more. Apple Pay can also be used in applications and on the Apple Watch to make payments.
Customers will continue to get all FNB’s incentives and benefits, including eBucks and purchase protection on eligible purchases, according to the bank.
