The latest version of the Isis Mobile Wallet is now available to consumers for download in the Google Play app store and at thousands of AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless retail stores nationwide. The Isis Mobile Wallet allows customers to pay at contactless payment terminals, and to save money through special offers and loyalty cards at participating merchants – all from their Isis Ready smartphone.
The Isis Mobile Wallet allows consumers to shop and pay using their mobile phone, by securely storing virtual versions of a customer’s participating credit or prepaid cards, as well as coupons and merchant loyalty cards. To use the wallet, customers simply select a payment card and tap their smartphone on the point-of-sale terminal.
The redesigned Isis Mobile Wallet features a simplified user interface with a clean, white background and easy-to-navigate toolbars. Integration with American Express Serve makes it convenient for users to load funds to their American Express Serve Account from a U.S. debit or credit card, bank account, or through direct deposit, as well as pay bills online and send money to friends and family using an American Express Serve Account.
“Today’s nationwide launch of the Isis Mobile Wallet is a milestone for consumers, merchants and banks. It’s the start of a smarter way to pay,” said Michael Abbott, chief executive officer, Isis. “Together, with our partners, we’ve built a seamless mobile commerce experience. We’re pleased to bring the magic and simplicity of the Isis Mobile Wallet to consumers across the U.S.”
Customers with one of the more than 40 Isis Ready smartphones available from AT&T, T-Mobile or Verizon Wireless can receive a free enhanced SIM card from their wireless carrier and download the Isis Mobile Wallet for free from Google Play. Customers who visit a carrier retail store to activate the Isis Mobile Wallet will receive hands-on support and education from store associates.

“Isis is one of few truly independent wallets that is not tied to a specific financial institution, merchant or online marketing scheme. This wallet-as-a-platform approach positions Isis to unify the consumer experience across the many developing mobile shopping environments,” said Rick Oglesby, senior analyst, Aite Group. “The national rollout is an important step towards making mobile payments a part of everyday retail experiences.”
