Bank of Ireland announced Tuesday that its customers can now use Apple Pay. The launch followed the rollout of the bank’s new app. It means they can make contactless payments using an iPhone or Apple Watch, secured with Face ID or Touch ID.
Bank of Ireland Customers Can Now Use Apple Pay
Commenting on the introduction of Apple Pay, Director of Business Transformation at Bank of Ireland, Christine Hamill said:
Apple Pay is now available for Bank of Ireland customers, making it even easier for those who prefer the convenience of paying in-store with their iPhone. The financial wellbeing of our customers is a top priority for us and this new capability helps our customers manage their day to day finances in a safer, more secure way. From today customers can add their personal and business debit cards and personal credit cards to Apple Pay and start using the service to enhance their payment options.
Other features available in the new iOS app include the ability to viewing and downloading statements; set up, view, and manage Standing Orders, and add an account online. Apple Pay also makes it easier for customers to complete transactions on any of their Apple devices. The service first became available in Ireland in 2017 and continues to expand to countries around the world. Israel users are set to get access this year.
