Apple Pay is available for your Peoples Community Bank Visa Credit Card and Mastercard Debit Card. Designed to protect your sensitive card information and make purchases as quick and easy as possible, Apple Pay is changing the way we shop.  Just activate Apple Pay on your iPhone 6 or newer model and follow the prompts to quickly add your credit card to your mobile wallet. Once verified, you are instantly able to make purchases by simply holding your phone near the contactless reader at checkout and verifying the purchase with a scan of your fingerprint. Simple as that.

Security

In recent years credit card fraud has grown to become a larger issue for consumers and businesses alike. The transition to mobile wallets and Apple Pay, specifically, is changing that. Each time you swipe your credit card an exchange of your information is triggered making it vulnerable to fraud. With Apple Pay, your credit card information is not shared with the merchant. Instead, when you add your card, a unique Device Account Number is assigned and encrypted on your mobile device. That number, along with a transaction-specific security code, is used to process your purchase. Your card information is never transmitted. And unlike swiping your credit card, a fingerprint or passcode is required to verify the purchase is being made by the actual cardholder.

Convenience

To pay in stores, just hold your iPhone near the contactless reader with your finger on the Touch ID. A subtle vibration lets you know your payment was successfully processed. No waiting to sign a receipt or shuffling through your belongings to find your wallet and the correct credit card. Simply scan and be on your way.
