BMO Harris Debuts Small Business Masterpass™, Apple Pay™, Android Pay™ and Samsung Pay™

Everyday business purchase needs can now be facilitated through a seamless, contactless payment system across mobile devices

CHICAGO, Sept. 25, 2017 /CNW/ - BMO Harris Bank today announced the release of Small Business Mastercard® for BMO Harris Bank Masterpass™, Apple Pay™, Android Pay™ and Samsung Pay™ digital wallets. Small business credit card customers can take advantage of an additional method to make purchases for everyday business needs, whether it's in-store, in-app or online.

With the new digital wallet lineup, small business customers' purchase transactions can be conducted right from their mobile devices without the need of a wallet or a card. This additional payment feature aligns with the bank's mission to provide small business customers a simpler and more efficient way to make business purchases. Additionally, customers can enjoy added peace of mind against unauthorized purchases with the zero liability protection1 feature.

"Small business owners are busy, and we're here to help by offering them a simpler purchasing experience on their smartphone devices," said Jennifer Hawkins, Head of North American Retail Payments, BMO Financial Group. "Our digital wallets are secure and easy to use, making for a simple, straightforward buying experience."

The contactless payment system is easy to use with a quick tap using the digital wallet application, which pays securely with the user's tokenized credit and debit card registered within the application. Digital wallet accounts also include the fingerprint or passcode security feature, which prompts users to confirm their identity. Transactions remain secure with uniquely encrypted assigned numbers, which are not tied to the physical credit or debit card number and can also be quickly and easily suspended in the case a device is lost – without disabling the physical card.
