Isis Mobile Wallet Adds Wells Fargo Cards
Isis today announced that holders of Wells Fargo Visa cards will soon be able to use their cards with Isis' mobile payment service. Wells Fargo joins American Express and Chase as supporters of the Isis program, which is the mobile payment venture backed by AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon Wireless. Consumers with Isis-compatible devices can make contactless payments at 1.3 million retail locations around the country, including those operated by 24 of the top 100 merchants. The system uses a pin code for payments, and Isis says that customer banking data is safe. The service can be disabled if the device is lost or stolen. Isis also requires a special, secure SIM card that must be purchased from AT&T, T-Mobile, or Verizon Wireless.
