What is a Digital Wallet?
A digital wallet allows you to make purchases without using an actual credit or debit card. If you’ve ever forgotten your purse at home or lost your debit card, you know this is a big deal! By removing the need for physical transactions, your digital wallet drastically reduces the risk of loss or fraud.
When you add your card to your digital wallet, a unique Device Account Number is assigned, encrypted, and securely stored. Then, when you make a purchase, the Device Account Number is used to process your payment along with a transaction-specific dynamic security code.
Since your actual credit or debit card numbers are never shared with merchants or transmitted with payments, your privacy is protected. If you’re making a purchase in person, the cashier never sees your name, card numbers, or security code.
