A digital wallet, also known as a mobile wallet, is a virtual platform that serves as an electronic version of a physical wallet. The wallet stores a virtual version of your debit card, so that electronic transactions are made effortlessly and securely. You can manage payment information, save digital tickets, make online purchases, and tap and pay.
Apple Pay is an easy and secure way to make purchases. To pay, just hold your supported iPhone® near a participating merchant’s contactless reader or use it with other participating online merchants. A vibration and beep let you know your payment has been accepted.
Using Apple Pay is safe. Your card number is not stored on your phone nor given to the merchant, instead a digital code is created specifically for the device.
A Simple Way to Get Started
To get started, you need a supported iPhone® or iPad®. Simply add your GeoVista debit card to your Apple Pay account with your iSight ® camera or by entering it manually.
The first card you add will automatically become your default payment card. You can go to Apple Wallet anytime to pay with a different card and add or remove any of your cards as needed.
A Secure Way to Protect Your Account
If your mobile device is ever lost or stolen, you can use the "Find My iPhone" feature in your iCloud to quickly set your device to "Lost Mode," or you can erase all information from your iPhone. To do so, sign into your iCloud account.
To add your GeoVista Debit Card open the Wallet® app, swipe down and tap the plus sign. Use your camera to add the card or enter it manually.
