For your security, when you make a purchase using your digital wallet, you must enter either of these. As an added protection, your card number and identity aren’t shared with the merchant, and your actual card numbers aren’t stored on your device or on your mobile servers. A unique digital code is created specifically for your device. We strongly recommend you always secure your mobile device(s) with a password or PIN.

A: You will hear a small sound or feel a vibration to indicate that the payment was successful, as well as a paid message on your device’s display.

A: Look for Apple Pay, Google Pay, or Samsung Pay logos at checkout. More and more merchants are accepting digital wallets; however, we advise you to continue to carry your physical card in order to use them where they are not accepted.
Q: Will my device show my transactions?
A: Yes. You will be able to see your last transactions when you open your digital wallet. If you have Card Valet download and your card registered you will get a notification, only if you have your alerts set up.
Q: Can I continue to use my plastic debit cards?
A: Yes. If you choose, your plastic debit card will work as normal.
