Wells Fargo & Company and Isis, the mobile commerce joint venture created by AT&T Mobility, T-Mobile USA, Inc. and Verizon Wireless, has announced the first phase of an agreement that allows Wells Fargo Visa consumer credit card holders to load their cards into the Isis Mobile Wallet.
This launch enables cardholders to securely pay, redeem coupons and present loyalty credentials, all with the tap of their phone.
“We are committed to helping our customers succeed financially. Helping them make payments when, where and how they want is part of that promise,” said Peter Ho, manager of digital payments for Wells Fargo’s Consumer Financial Services group. “Our customers lead mobile lives and their ability to pay for things should reflect that fact. During this pilot phase with Isis, we will test and learn with customers who want to be on the leading edge of this technology.”
“Wells Fargo is among the most innovative brands in the country and we are pleased to introduce Isis Mobile Wallet to their credit card customers,” said Ryan Hughes, chief marketing officer, Isis. “We look forward to our work together as we deliver new payment features to consumers.”
First Data Corporation will serve as Wells Fargo’s Trusted Service Manager to deliver card information safely and securely onto the mobile device.
