Why use digital wallets when you have a tried and true wallet? Your digital wallet, also called a mobile wallet, is a safe and secure way to pay with your Numerica Visa® debit or credit card. This form of mobile payment lets you pay with your phone by using Samsung Pay™, Android Pay™ or Apple Pay™.
Getting started with understanding digital wallet
Leading the way with this new way to pay, Numerica was the first local credit union to offer this technology.
Why add your Numerica debit or credit card to your digital wallet
Safe and secure
Each transaction uses a one-time, unique virtual validation that does not use your actual card number. This is referred to as a secure token-based system and means that your sensitive financial information doesn’t get shared over the airwaves.
Paying is just a touch away. On qualifying smart phones, add your Numerica debit or credit card to your “mobile pay wallet.” No more fumbling with your wallet and looking for the right card. At participating retailers, you can now use your phone to checkout by using your fingerprint!
Convenient mobile shopping
More apps are integrating with your digital wallet for secure, convenient transactions.
How to set up your digital wallet
- Open your phone’s wallet feature. If you are on your mobile device, you can click which type of device you have and get more information. Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, and Android Pay. Select “Add Card” to add your Numerica Visa debit or credit card.
- Verify your identity.
You may be asked to call, text, or email in order to verify your identity.
- Use your mobile device to pay in store or online, and have fun!
How to use mobile pay (Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, Android Pay) at the store
When you’re at a store that accepts mobile pay, hold your device over the payment reader while placing your finger on the Touch ID button (which is an added layer of protection). You will feel a buzzing from your phone and a completion message of the transaction.
