Did you know that you can make payments with your Central National Bank debit card via Android Pay and Samsung Pay, in addition to Apple Pay? These three payment systems represent a faster, more convenient way to make payments using the wallet on your smart phone.
What are Android and Samsung Pay?
Android and Samsung Pay are payment systems that allow you to make purchases using your smart phone, tablet, or smart watch instead of sliding your debit or credit card.
Why should I use my digital wallet?
Using a Digital Wallet is faster, safer and more convenient than carrying around a wallet full of cards. Set your Central National Bank debit card up in your digital wallet today. Your wallet uses tokenization to create a unique randomized set of numbers to be used at each new transaction, meaning your card number is safe during the point of sale transaction.
How does it work?
Samsung Pay: Once you have added your cards, all you have to do to access them is swipe up from the bottom of your lock screen. Next, it will prompt you to choose a card to make your payment with. After selecting a card Samsung pay will have you verify your identity by fingerprint or pin number. To make the payment you will place the back of your device near a compatible card terminal.
Android Pay: Once your card is stored in your device all you have to do is open the app and hold your phone near the compatible card terminal. If you’re prompted, choose credit.

What if you lose your phone?
Samsung Pay does not store or share your payment information and requires a thumbprint or pin code to make a purchase. For extra security if your phone is lost or stolen you can lock or erase your Samsung pay account from separate devices.
Likewise, if you lose your phone you can use Android’s Device Manager to lock it or secure it with a new password as well as wipe all of your personal data from the device.
