What is a digital wallet?
A digital wallet is the ability to make secure contactless purchases in stores, and on participating apps and websites using your MOVE Bank Visa debit and/or credit cards via your smartphone or smartwatch device. There are many mobile payment services available in the market, however the two most common are Apple Pay* and Google Pay#. MOVE Bank currently supports the use of both services.
What are the benefits of using a digital wallet?
Using or having a digital wallet provides you with several benefits, including:
Security: Apple Pay and Google Pay require biometric (e.g. Face ID or Touch ID) or passcode authentication to make purchases, therefore it is more secure than physical debit or credit cards that can be taken and used to ‘tap and pay’ for authorised purchases under $200 without the need for a PIN code. Payments via Apple Pay or Google Pay are also secure and private as your card details are not stored on your device or handed over at the point of sale.
Fast, simple payment: You don’t have to take time looking for cards or entering in card details to make a purchase. Once you have your digital wallet set up, you can make a purchase with the touch of a button.
Convenience: If you accidently leave your debit or credit card in the car or at home, you can continue to make purchases on the go. You may also just want to travel lighter and not carry a full wallet. Having a digital wallet gives you this flexibility, whatever your needs may be.
How can I set up my digital wallet?
To use either Apple Pay or Google Pay, you first must have a compatible device. You can find more information on device compatibility as well as steps to add your card/s to your digital wallet on the following pages of our website.
