PAY IN STORES WITH SPEED AND SECURITY
You no longer need to swipe to pay. Just touch, tap or hover.
Gone are the days of counting change and writing checks to make payments. You can add your FirstBank Debit Card to your Apple, Samsung or Android devices to make payments easier in your favorite stores with just one touch of your device – no need to swipe your card.
You’ve got purchasing security in the bag.
Mobile payment technologies use a combination of sophisticated software and hardware that makes payments secure. Your physical card is digitally encrypted, retailers don’t store your payment information and no card information is passed on to Apple, Google or the merchant. Plus, your fingerprint or a code is required for purchase. Mobile Wallets give you peace of mind you can’t put a price on. For answers to your questions about Mobile Wallets, please go to the Mobile & Online section of our Help Center >
Just look for this symbol to use your Mobile Wallet. View your virtual cards and manage your settings in your smartphone Wallet.
Apple Pay® makes it simple to use your eligible FirstBank cards for secure, private purchases. If you have an iPhone, Apple Watch® or iPad® it’s easy to add your card information and start making purchases—in-app, in-store and on the web. Apple Pay is accepted in grocery stores, boutiques, restaurants, hotels, and many popular retailers and nonprofits across the nation. You can also use Apple Pay in all kinds of apps — and on participating websites using Safari on your Mac, iPhone, and iPad.

Fees: your usual wireless carrier fees may apply. Your standard fees associated with the use of your physical debit card also apply to your virtual card. FirstBank is not responsible for products and services offered by other companies. MasterCard, Visa and American Express will process transactions similar to how they process your physical card transactions today except most merchants won’t have access to your actual card number; they will receive the unique virtual card number associated with your credit or debit card. MasterCard must provide your actual card number to certain transit merchants (e.g., subway systems) in order to process real-time decisions.
