U.S. Bank implements Apple Pay

Banking

U.S. Bank has  announced its integration with Apple Pay, providing customers an easy, secure and private way to pay using their U.S. Bankconsumer credit and debit cards right from iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch. By integrating Apple designed hardware, software and services, Apple Pay creates a unique and incredibly intuitive experience that will be available to U.S. Bank customers later this fall.

“We are thrilled to be part of this historic moment with Apple,” said Richard Davis, chairman, president and chief executive officer of U.S. Bancorp. “As we focus on U.S. Bank’s future, we will continue to grow our mobile technology in order to keep pace with the current and next generation of banking customers, and anticipate how to make our products and services more convenient. Working closely with Apple to bring Apple Pay to U.S. Bank customers across the country aligns with our legacy of simplifying customers’ lives, developing exceptional banking products and services, and our ability to make cultural connections with current and future customers through the utilization of technology in innovative and practical ways.”

“Having been a part of a group of industry leaders paving the way to more convenient and secure mobile and online payments, it’s clear that Apple Pay is a tremendous step forward,” saidPamela Joseph, vice chair and head of the payments division at U.S. Bank. “Consumers are never far from their mobile devices, so making it safer and easier to pay with those devices is great news for our customers and for the industry. Combining Apple’s history of innovation with the scale and loyalty of U.S. Bank, Apple Pay has the ability to impact and drastically accelerate the adoption of mobile payments."

Approximately 29 percent of all online retail sales in the United States will be transacted on smartphones and tablets by the end of 2014, according to a Forrester Research, Inc., report, “US Mobile Phone And Tablet Commerce Forecast, 2013 To 2018,” May 2014. Forrester also expects U.S. mobile payments to reach $90 billion in 2017 (US Mobile Payments Forecast, 2013 To 2017; January 2013).
