Starting March 17, KeyBank (www.Key.com) customers will be able to use Apple Pay to make secure payments at more than 700,000 businesses across the United States and select iOS apps.
“We’re thrilled to add Apple Pay to the fast-growing range of digital banking services we offer banking customers,” says Matthew D. Lehman, senior vice president and head of digital banking.
Using their iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus mobile devices running iOS 8.1 or later, KeyBank customers can use Apple Pay, a mobile payments solution, to complete credit or debit card transactions without revealing their card information. Customers simply hold their iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus near a contactless reader with their finger on the Touch ID fingerprint sensor. KeyBank customers can also make in-app purchases with either the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air 2 or iPad mini 3 mobile devices.
Lehman says that adding Apple Pay to KeyBank’s digital banking program is part of a customer-focused plan that” redefines the entire user experience across all digital platforms to give KeyBank customers the access and control they want.” One of the nation’s largest bank-based financial services companies, Key has assets of approximately US$94 billion.
