Discover cardholders get Apple Pay and Android Pay™ support
Discover is going to allow their cardholders to make contactless payments at participating merchants through Apple Pay beginning this fall.
The long anticipated deal between Apple and Discover was finally made. The companies reached agreement that will allow Discover cardholders in the U.S. to make contactless payments in participating stores through Apple Pay using iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch.
In addition to paying in stores with iPhone, the cardholders will also be able to use Apple Pay when paying for goods and services within apps supporting the platform on all iOS devices.
Focusing on simplicity and value, Discover continues providing their cardholders with secure options for using their cars and mobile devices. And Apple Pay makes purchases easy and convenient.
Those who do not use iOS devices and prefer Android phones can also rejoice. Discover cardholders using Android 4.4 (KitKat) phones in the U.S. soon will also be making contactless payments but through Android Pay™, Google’s mew mobile payment solution.
Discover wants to give their customers the freedom, options and simplicity by making mobile payments available to their cardholders. Adding Android Pay and Apple Pay will expand Discover’s ability to enhance the convenience and experience for its mobile users.
