Apple Pay Now Available to HarborOne Bank’s Customers Offering an Easy, Secure & Private Way to Pay

HarborOne Bank, the largest co-operative bank in New England, now offers its customers access to Apple Pay, a new category of service that will transform mobile payments with an easy, secure and private way to pay.

Apple Pay provides an added layer of security for in-store and in-app purchases by enabling payments using a HarborOne credit or debit card without having to use the physical card. Once the HarborOne credit or debit card is enabled within Apple Pay, a customer can make payments by holding a phone in close proximity to a payment terminal.

Security and privacy is at the core of Apple Pay. When you add a credit or debit card with Apple Pay, the actual card numbers are not stored on the device nor on Apple servers. Instead, a unique Device Account Number is assigned, encrypted and securely stored in the Secure Element on your device. Each transaction is authorized with a one-time unique dynamic security code, instead of using the security code from the back of your card.

“At HarborOne, we are always looking to provide innovative ways to make all facets of banking faster, more convenient and – most importantly – more secure,” HarborOne President and CEO James W. Blake. “We’re excited to provide access to the streamlined, secure Apple Pay so that our customers continue to have an exceptional banking experience from a community-centered bank, close to home.”
In participating stores, Apple Pay will work with iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch, upon availability. Within apps, Apple Pay is compatible with iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3.
