Athenry Credit Union announced a significant enhancement to their popular Current Account service with the introduction of Google Pay and Fitbit Pay.
Athenry Credit Union Current Account members can now add their Debit Card to Google Pay and Fitbit Pay digital wallets, making it easier for their members to make contactless payments using a mobile phone and/or Fitbit watch.
The use of digital wallet payments provides a safer more secure way to pay that removes the need to handle payment cards, touch physical buttons or exchange cash.
Philip Lavelle Marketing Officer with Athenry Credit Union said: “We are delighted to offer this convenient and modern way to pay, particularly given the recent demand for such advances in technology that avoid cash handling. Members with Current Account can now make contactless payments using their Mobile Phone and Fitbit in the knowledge that this is a safer way to pay and that Contactless Payments are free!
With advancements in technology Athenry Credit Union members have access to a wider offering of products and services than ever before including, our full-service Current Account, Online Overdraft facility, Online Banking, Mobile App and now Google Pay and Fitbit Pay.”
Current Account holders of Athenry Credit Union can use this new service wherever Contactless payments are accepted. To find out more about Current Account and using Google Pay and Fitbit Pay visit the Athenry Credit Union website www.AthenryCU.ie/Current-Account
