Pay With Your iPhone.
If your iPhone has facial recognition, double-click the side button. And if prompted, authenticate with face ID or enter your passcode. If your phone has touch ID, double-click the home button. From there, hold the top of your iPhone near the contactless reader until it displays the word “Done” and a checkmark.

Pay With Your iPad.
This process is similar to that of the iPhone. On an iPad with touch ID, authenticate via that method or enter your passcode. For iPads with facial recognition, simply double-click the top button, then glance at your device to authenticate with face ID, or enter your passcode.

Pay With Your Apple Watch.
Double-click the side button, then hold the display of your Apple Watch near the contactless reader until you feel a gentle tap.

Mobile wallet is a convenient way to carry your Gate City Bank debit card information in digital form on your mobile device (smartphone, tablet or smartwatch). Once cards are digitally stored and secured within the mobile device, users may use the mobile device for transactions anywhere they are accepted.

With mobile wallet, each transaction is securely encrypted, meaning your actual card or account numbers are never shared with the merchant. Mobile wallet also adds an extra layer of protection as each transaction requires the user to verify via face ID, touch ID, fingerprint or passcode.

Mobile wallet works by using contactless technology, allowing your phone to complete transactions through nearby payment terminals. When a mobile device is used for purchases, the merchant will send a secure, encrypted code through the network and route the transaction to Gate City Bank.

Mobile wallet transactions may be used in stores, within apps or on the web. For in-person transactions (in a store, for example), simply:

  1. Open the mobile wallet app and verify the transaction by using the options compatible with the mobile device:
    • Facial recognition
    • Fingerprint ID scanner
    • Your passcode (used to secure the device)

  2. Tap the phone to the card reader (Apple Pay/Google Pay/Samsung Pay) or hold the top of the phone a few centimeters beside the magnetic stripe reader. When the transaction is complete, your mobile device will display "Done," and a checkmark will display on the device.
