What is a Mobile Wallet? Mobile wallets are essentially digital versions of traditional wallets that someone would carry in their pocket. While there are many variations, usually they can hold digital information about credit and debit cards for making payments, store coupons and loyalty programs, specific information about personal identity and more.
How does a mobile wallet work? When ready to make an in-store purchase, simply hold your smartphone over the payment terminal and follow the instructions on your phone. The app then utilizes information transfer technology such as Near-Field Communications (NFC) to interact with mobile wallet ready payment terminals. The payment will process to your selected default payment method. Want to use a different card or payment method? Before starting your payment transaction, open up your mobile wallet and select the payment method you wish to use.
