Mobile Wallets are convenient way to securely make purchases at stores, as well as online and through some apps. First Alliance Credit Union’s debit and credit cards are compatible with Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Samsung Pay!

Key things to know about mobile wallets:

Mobile Wallets are Secure. Your card information isn't stored on your device or shared when you pay; this keeps your information safe at the sales terminal and online.

Mobile Wallets are Convenient. Make easy and secure purchases from a variety of compatible devices anywhere you see the contactless payment icon. Checking out is as simple as placing your finger on Touch ID with Apple Pay or gently touching your phone to terminal with Google and Samsung Pay.
