First National Bank, the largest subsidiary of F.N.B. Corporation (FNB), will make Apple Pay™ available to customers beginning in the first quarter of 2015.
Apple Pay will enable customers to easily make secure mobile payments with their First National Bank debit card. The new service adds leading-edge payments technology to the Bank's robust online and mobile banking options.
Apple Pay allows users to make purchases with just the touch of a finger at hundreds of thousands of stores. Payments are secure and private. Each card added to Apple Pay is assigned a unique, encrypted Device Account Number, so actual credit or debit card numbers are never shared with merchants or transmitted with payments.
"At First National Bank, we continuously invest in technology, enhancing our product offering to provide customers with convenience and security," said Vincent J. Delie, Jr., President and CEO of F.N.B. Corporation and CEO of First National Bank. "With Apple Pay, we will expand our state-of-the-art online and mobile banking offering to incorporate the latest in payments solutions while keeping customer security a top priority."
First National Bank customers already have access to a leading mobile banking app, F.N.B. Direct, which allows customers to pay bills and to deposit checks by taking pictures using the smartphone camera. F.N.B. Direct and Apple Pay complement First National Bank's comprehensive online banking platform, which includes an intuitive budget center as well as a number of other necessary banking functions.
Apple Pay works with iPhone® 6, iPhone 6 plus or Apple Watch™ in stores accepting contactless payments. Purchases can be made within participating apps on iPhone 6, iPad Air® 2, and iPad mini™ 3.
