Now you can carry the Signal Financial cards you keep in your wallet, without even bringing your wallet along. Signal Financial has joined the list of institutions participating in the highly anticipated Apple Pay service. And that means your transactions can be simpler, more secure and more private than ever.

Apple Pay is available on the iPhone® 6 and the generations that follow, and it’s free to use, apart from any message or data rates specified in your wireless plan. Once you’ve entered your cards into your phone’s Wallet app, you’ll be able to make purchases at thousands of merchant locations. Apple Pay also lets you use your iPad Air® and iPad Mini 3 for online-only shopping within certain apps.

Apple Pay’s advanced technology works behind the scenes to make your purchases more secure than ever before. In participating stores, you just hold your phone near the merchant’s contactless reader, with your finger on the Touch ID sensor. That’s it. Not only do your name and card number remain anonymous to cashiers and bystanders, but your phone itself carries only a unique, encrypted Device Account Number rather than your actual debit or credit card numbers.

How easy is it to get started with Apple Pay? Just open your Wallet app, swipe down and tap the plus sign. Then enter your card by snapping a photo with your device’s iSight® camera, or adding the data manually. If you already have a card in iTunes, you’ll be prompted to add it to your Wallet. Start shopping with greater ease and confidence today.
