CPort Blog Post Imagecontactless Payments

Did you know you can use your cPort debit card with Apple Pay, Android Pay, and Samsung Pay?  This way you make a payment at a store register without having to make contact and put yourself at risk.

As we prepare for Maine to reopen, people are already likely thinking of new ways to safely approach re-entering public places while COVID-19 is still active. We know that the use of contactless payment options will continue to increase while the virus is still able to live on surfaces.

Last week we talked about the convenient ease of cPort’s Pay-A-Friend eBanking feature to reduce cash handling. This week we want to remind you about the electronic payment feature on many of your devices. Electronic payments allow you to securely use your device (phone, Apple watch, etc) in place of a credit or debit card, thus creating a touchless and stress-free transaction!

If you haven’t already linked your cPort debit card to your device yet, there are a few steps you’ll need to take to make sure you’re set up before you can use your device to pay. Once you’ve synced your debit card to your device you can use it at any register where you see the Pay Wave® icon. That means you don’t have to worry about grabbing your wallet, touching a keypad, or using a pen— giving you peace of mind that your payment was made safely on all accounts!
