Discover has just revealed that it has secured an agreement with Apple that will let Discover cardmembers (those in the U.S., at least) to make contactless payments in participating stores through Apple Pay.
It’s yet another major financial services giant to warmly embrace Apple’s red-hot mobile payments platform.
“As the mobile payments landscape matures, Discover remains committed to giving cardmembers secure options for using their cards and mobile devices,” said Diane Offereins, Discover’s president of payment services. “Discover’s focus on simplicity and value for our cardmembers aligns well with the way Apple Pay makes purchases easy and convenient.”
The option to pay via Apple Pay will be available to Discover Card members beginning this fall.
