Discover Jumps Aboard Apple Pay Wagon
Discover today said cardholders will soon be able to add their Discover-backed cards to Apple Pay on the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and Apple Watch for making mobile payments. Discover operates a payment network much like those of MasterCard and Visa, which have supported Apple Pay from launch. Discover Network will enable eligible financial institutions to let their card holders use Apple Pay. Discover says customers of participating financial institutions can add their credit card or debit card to Apple Pay, and they'll still be eligible for all their normal perks, such as Cashback Bonus and Freeze It. Discover said it expects its banking customers to begin rolling out support for Apple Pay by fall.
