On the Wires:

  • Apple Announces Apple Pay - “Security and privacy is at the core of Apple Pay. When you’re using Apple Pay in a store, restaurant or other merchant, cashiers will no longer see your name, credit card number or security code, helping to reduce the potential for fraud,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services.
  • Apple Announces iPhone 6 & iPhone 6 Plus—The Biggest Advancements in iPhone History - "For the first time iPhone is available in two new sizes: iPhone 6 features a stunning 4.7-inch Retina® HD display with 1334 x 750 resolution, providing 38 percent more viewing area than iPhone 5s, while iPhone 6 Plus features an even bigger 5.5-inch Retina HD display with 1920 x 1080 resolution, providing 88 percent more viewing area and nearly three times the pixels than iPhone 5s."
  • MasterCard Works with Apple to Integrate Apple Pay - “We have been a pioneer of mobile commerce innovation for years – including the world’s first contactless and mobile payment solutions. We're thrilled that MasterCard cardholders will soon be able to make payments from their iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch, knowing that every purchase is secure and offers all the same guarantees and benefits they've come to expect from using their MasterCard.”
  • Visa and Apple Opening a New Era of Payments on Mobile Devices - “Combining the trust, scale and security of Visa payments with Apple Pay will accelerate adoption of mobile payments,” said Charlie Scharf, Chief Executive Officer, Visa Inc. “We said from the beginning that token services would provide great new consumer and merchant experiences, and you’re seeing it today in our efforts with Apple, and there’s more to come.”
  • Capital One Brings Payment Innovation to Customers with Apple Pay - “Working with Apple, we’re excited to bring Apple Pay to tens of millions of Capital One customers,” said Frank LaPrade, Chief Enterprise Services Officer, Capital One Financial Corporation. “We are laser-focused on the evolution of digital products and services. Our goal is to provide our customers with payment options that help them succeed and simplify their lives.”
  • U.S. Bank Provides Customers an Easy Way to Pay with Apple Pay - “Having been a part of a group of industry leaders paving the way to more convenient and secure mobile and online payments, it’s clear that Apple Pay is a tremendous step forward,” said Pamela Joseph, vice chair and head of the payments division at U.S. Bank. “Consumers are never far from their mobile devices, so making it safer and easier to pay with those devices is great news for our customers and for the industry. Combining Apple’s history of innovation with the scale and loyalty of U.S. Bank, Apple Pay has the ability to impact and drastically accelerate the adoption of mobile payments."
  • Visa Launches Innovative Token Service - "Visa Token Service replaces sensitive payment account information found on plastic cards with a digital account number or “token”. Because “tokens” do not carry a consumer’s payment account details, such as the 16-digit account number, they can be safely stored by online merchants or on mobile devices to facilitate ecommerce and mobile payments."
  • NCR to Help Industries Integrate Apple Pay - “With Apple Pay, Apple has transformed mobile payments and will have an impact on the industry like never before. We are thrilled to be working closely with Apple to help Retail and Hospitality customers integrate this new method of payment into their operations, providing an easy, safe and secure way to pay with a single touch,” said Jimmy Fortuna, Vice President of Product Development and Chief Technology Officer, NCR Hospitality.
  • The Debut of Apple Pay Creates a Dynamic New Platform for Powerful First Data Transaction Technology - “Apple Pay has transformed mobile payments in a way that our clients will love, and will have an impact on the industry like never before,” said Frank Bisignano, First Data’s Chairman and CEO. “We’re thrilled to bring First Data solutions to support Apple Pay, along with the financial institutions, merchants developing apps and consumers to provide an easy, safe and secure way to pay with a single touch.”
  • TSYS Supports Apple Pay - “TSYS’ support of Apple Pay is a landmark opportunity for us and demonstrates our people-centered approach to payments for all parties in the payments ecosystem,” said M. Troy Woods, president and chief executive officer, TSYS. “Our number one priority is security for the banks and retailers we serve, so their customers can conduct their lives with confidence and convenience. Apple Pay will change the face of the mobile payments industry and our role in the digital marketplace.”
  • The Home Depot Provides Update on Breach Investigation - “We apologize for the frustration and anxiety this causes our customers, and I want to thank them for their patience and support as we work through this issue,” said Frank Blake, chairman and CEO.

US Bank Introduces Community Card for Tax-Exempt Organizations

USBank logo 140pxUS Bank has announced a new Community Credit Card for non-profit organizations and small municipalities. The new card has fewer fees, a powerful online expense-management tool and other features crafted to their unique needs. The U.S. Bank Visa® Community Credit Card has no annual fees, no late fees and no over-limit fees and is now offered in all U.S. Bank branches.

The U.S. Bank Community Card is designed for non-profit organizations and municipalities where usual credit-underwriting standards sometimes aren’t appropriate,” said Cathi Stanton, senior vice president for U.S. Bank Retail Payment Solutions.

“For instance, instead of assigning liability to board members – which can be a tough ask for non-profits – the liability is held by the organization.”

"U.S. Bank’s free ScoreBoard tool lets tax-exempt organizations see, compare and control expenses more efficiently, giving staff more time to focus on the organization’s mission and needs,” Stanton said.

Examples of non-profits that can benefit include: religious organizations; cultural groups; foundations; social services; educational institutions; and other tax-exempt institutions. Municipal organizations that may qualify include: local, state, federal entities; schools; city or county offices; fire, police, and sheriff departments; and public housing administrations.

In October, U.S. Bank introduced another new specialty credit card: the U.S. Bank Visa Signature® Company credit card. Designed for companies with $1 million to $10 million in annual revenues, it offers unique advantages for businesses such as no personal guarantor and cash-back rewards.

U.S. Bank and American Express Announce Card-Issuing Agreement

USBank logo 140pxU.S. Bank and American Express have announced that U.S. Bank will offer credit cards accepted on the American Express network in 2014.

We actively listen to our customers and are focused on delivering the right financial solutions that best meet their needs,” said Pam Joseph, Vice Chairman of U.S. Bank.

“We believe that the American Express network provides a combination of benefits and services that many of our customers want. We’re proud to partner with American Express, a company with a rich history of service that’s dedicated to providing outstanding customer value.”

U.S. Bank is now working with American Express to design programs for U.S. Bank’s customers and expects to begin offering cards on the American Express network by fall 2014. The new American Express-branded cards will be available online, at U.S. Bank’s 3,088 branches and by phone.

US Bank Introduces Contour Prepaid Card

USBank logo 140pxU.S. Bank has announced the U.S. Bank Contour Card - saying that the new card "gives customers the convenience of a debit card, the control of a bank account and the freedom of cash."

We continue working to give customers innovative options to manage their finances,” said Kevin Morrison, senior vice president for U.S. Bank Retail Payment Solutions. “The Contour Card is our latest example. It’s a great tool to manage expenses by giving you the power to budget your money across multiple prepaid cards under the same account. Customers can use Contour as their primary payment card, but it is also a good fit for anyone who wants a new way to manage money.”

“Contour gives you control over your spending in so many ways,” said Whitney Bright, market leader for consumer prepaid at U.S. Bank. “From tracking your spending to transferring money between accounts, Contour gives customers the ability to manage it all from one location through their personal My Contour Dashboard.”

Cardholders can open up to five additional card accounts that can be linked to their primary account. Cardholders can use Contour anywhere Visa Debit cards are accepted, get free cash withdrawals at any U.S. Bank or MoneyPass ATMs, and direct deposit paychecks to their accounts at no additional charge.

“We share a strong commitment with U.S. Bank to helping local businesses thrive” “Commerce is changing,” said Dominic Venturo, chief innovation officer for U.S. Bank Payment Services. “The proliferation of smartphones is altering the way consumers shop, compare products and make purchases. Our goal is to be where our customers are, and with the evolving marketplace, it’s important for us to support a variety of state-of-the art payment solutions to give customers the flexibility that they have come to expect from U.S. Bank.”

“We share a strong commitment with U.S. Bank to helping local businesses thrive,” said Chuck Kimble, head of strategic partnerships with Square. “Square Wallet gives U.S. Bank customers an easy and engaging way to discover and pay at great businesses in their neighborhood – all from their phone.”

Square wallet can be used at merchant locations that sell with Square. Customers can discover nearby businesses using Square Wallet, and pay at the point of sale with their mobile device by simply saying their name. Square’s technology automatically manages the transaction from the customer’s U.S. Bank payment account to the merchant. Transactions are completed without the cashier ever having the customer’s account number and other sensitive data.
