At Stash, we know our customers are always looking for ways to make their financial lives simpler, and better. That’s why we’re always working on new products and services—to serve you better.
And we’re so excited to tell you that you can now load your Stash debit card onto the most popular digital wallets available today.
What’s a digital wallet?
Digital wallets—also known as eWallets—are payment systems that let customers pay electronically, either online or in stores at the register. Digital wallets are a feature on customer smartphones, and they house customers’ credit and debit cards, like a wallet. This allows customers to get the most out of mobile payments by freeing them from the need to pull out credit cards or cash for purchases.
How you can use your digital wallet with Stash
Your Stash debit card works with Samsung Pay™, Google Pay™ (formerly known as Android Pay), and Apple Pay®, three of the most popular digital wallets today.
You can use your digital wallet in stores, by tapping your phone at registers that allow digital wallet payments. The technology used is called near-field communication, or NFC. Basically, that’s a complicated term for an encrypted form of payment that lets the chip in your card communicate directly with a merchant’s register.
You can tell which merchant accepts digital wallets by these logos:
You can also use your digital wallet online, if the merchant accepts digital wallet payments. Simply click on the digital wallet payment option at checkout, and select it for payments. The same thing applies to merchants with their own apps.
How can I add my Stash debit card to my digital wallet?
- Go to your digital wallet on your phone
- Follow the instructions on your device to add your card
- Accept the Terms & Conditions
- Confirm the security code we send
Is it secure?
Not only can digital wallets make your purchasing process faster and easier, but it can also make it more secure. Digital wallets encrypt banking and personal data, meaning it’s encoded and hidden by software, and it’s also encoded whenever it’s transmitted in a transaction. Additionally, most smartphones today come with their own layers of security, including the use of biometrics, to help keep things safe.
We look forward to working with you in the months and years to come as we roll out more products and services that will make your financial life easier and more enjoyable.
In the meantime, enjoy your new payment option, and keep on Stashing!
