Review advice, updates, and news from West Gate Bank!
July 6, 2018
Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Samsung Pay are all available to use with your West Gate Bank Debit Mastercard. We are very excited to begin offering Mobile Wallets to our customers, and instead of just turning them on, we wanted to take a deeper look at these and talk about some of the things you can do with them.
As a reminder, Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Samsung Pay are primarily a feature on your smart phone where you can add your West Gate Bank Debit Mastercard. Once added, you can pay at participating stores right from your phone without having the physical card with you.
Let’s take a closer look at each of these, starting with Apple Pay.
Apple Pay also serves as a way to send money via your Messages app. Once you have a card within your Apple Pay app you can send money to your babysitter, dog walker, or friend right in Messages as long as they are also Apple Pay users. You can also utilize Apple Pay to make payments within other apps and websites on your iPhone making the check out process quicker. Finally, you can add your membership cards, event tickets, and gift cards through the wallet.
Google Pay also allows you to pay others via your mobile wallet. As long as you have their email address or phone number you can send money to them. With Google Pay active on your phone, you will also be given the option to pay through multiple apps and websites while browsing using your mobile wallet. If you opt in to receive emails from Google Pay, you can find out about exclusive offers and rewards at select merchants. Finally, you can add your membership cards, event tickets, and gift cards through the wallet.
Samsung Pay offers a wide array of cash back rewards through different merchants. Once enrolled through Samsung Pay, you can check deals nearby you through their app. You can use the app to purchase gift cards either for yourself or to send to a friend, and sometimes they are offered at a discounted price. You can also connect your Samsung Pay wallet to your PayPal account for ease of sending and receiving money. Finally, you can add your membership cards, event tickets, and gift cards through the wallet.
