U.S. bank Chase introduces Chase pay app for Android and iOS
U.S. bank Chase has introduced its own mobile wallet app and service. Available on Android and iOS, it's called Chase Pay and it currently works in over 7500 Starbucks locations and around 1400 Best Buy stores.
Once customers download the app and sign in using the same User ID and password as they use on Chase.com, they will see their Chase Visa Credit, Debit and Liquid cards already loaded. On Apple devices, Touch ID can be used for future use of the app to make it easy to pay at the register. The same functionality doesn't seem to be available for Android devices with fingerprint scanners.
Customers can then use the Chase Pay app to pay with a mobile phone using QR codes at participating Starbucks and Best Buy stores, reload their Starbucks Card in the Starbucks mobile app for iPhone or online at Starbucks.com (this functionality will be available on Android soon), check Chase account balances and available credit, and view transactions from the last 90 days.
Security-wise, the app gives merchants a unique device account number (token) instead of sharing your actual card number to process the payment, and notifies users of suspicious activity. In the future, customers will be able to use Chase Pay at Phillips 66, Conoco, 76, Walmart, ShopRite, The Fresh Grocer, and at participating Shell stations.
