As they say: great things are worth waiting for, and after taking the time to ensure Arsenal’s systems were properly integrated with today’s newest mobile payment standards, we are excited to announce that your Arsenal Visa® credit and debit cards are now compatible with Apple Pay™, Android Pay™ and Samsung Pay™.
Checking device compatibility
Due to the technology required to securely relay payment information from your personal device to a payment terminal, not all devices will be equipped to utilize mobile payments. For instance:
- Apple Pay is limited to the iPhone 6/6S, 6 Plus/6S Plus and Apple Watch.
- Android Pay will only work with NFC-enabled Android devices running KitKat 4.4 or later.
- Samsung Pay will only work with the Galaxy S6/S6 Edge/S6 Edge+, Galaxy S6 active, Galaxy S7/S7 Edge and the Galaxy Note 5.
If you’re not sure if your device meets the criteria for mobile payments, please refer to your smartphone manufacturer’s website.
Setting up your mobile wallet
Depending on your smartphone make and model, your setup process may vary. Please click on the corresponding guide below:
Making a payment at participating merchants Once your Arsenal Visa credit and/or debit card has been securely stored on your device, using mobile banking is easy. After your cashier is ready to accept your method of payment, simply hold your device one inch above the payment terminal. Depending on your device’s capability, you will be prompted to authenticate your purchase by inputting your lock screen pass code or digital fingerprint. You will hear an audible sound from your device, accompanied by a vibration signifying the payment was transferred to the terminal.
And that’s it! You just used your new, secure mobile wallet! Welcome to the next phase of the payment revolution.
