FirstMerit Bank Now Offers Apple Pay for MasterCard Debit and Credit Card Customers

FirstMerit Corp. (Nasdaq: FMER) announced that Apple Pay is now available for Consumer, PrivateBank and Business MasterCard debit and credit cards customers with a compatible Apple device. Apple Pay is a convenient and secure way to make purchases without reaching for your wallet.

Participating retailers and in-app merchants will not see any bank or account information as the purchase is made directly from a contactless payment device on an iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, Apple Watch™, iPad Air® 2 or iPad mini™ 3. Not only are debit and credit card numbers not stored on the mobile devices, purchases are only authorized with a fingerprint scan on the device. FirstMerit charges no fees for Apple Pay transactions.

"FirstMerit is excited to offer such secure convenience to our customers," said Julie Tutkovics, chief marketing officer at FirstMerit. "The numbers of mobile payment transactions and the people making those transactions continue to grow. To accommodate our customers' needs, we are giving them an easy-to-use tool to help make purchases faster and safer than ever."

In addition to in-app transactions, Apple Pay is a convenient way to make purchases wherever there is a contactless payment device near the register. To pay at a retailer, the customer simply holds their Apple device near the contactless reader with their finger on the Touch ID. There is no need to open an app or even wake the phone's display. The payment is confirmed with a soft vibration and a beep.
