E*TRADE (ETFC) announced last week the release of Apple Pay functionality for E*TRADE debit card holders. This means that E*TRADE customers can now link E*TRADE debit cards directly to Apple Pay for a card-free payment.
George Fischer, SVP, Trading, Margin Lending, and Cash Management at E*TRADE said, “Traders and investors today expect an easy, seamless, and secure experience across the full investment lifecycle, from research to execution to monitoring. With the addition of Apple Pay, we take that one step further, allowing investors to access cash how they want, when they want, and where they want.”
Apple Pay is currently available using an iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, Apple Watch, iPad Air 2, or iPad mini 3 running iOS 8.1 or later.
E*TRADE has also created a short video announcing the release of this functionality. Check the video out below for a quick look at what to expect.
E*TRADE has always done a nice job with E*TRADE Mobile, and this is just another positive step. In fact, E*TRADE received a rare five star rating and was named Best in Class in the StockBrokers.com 2015 Online Broker review.
