Android Pay is being replaced with Google Pay. With Google Pay, you’ll have everything you loved about Android Pay with a fresh look and new features. All of the information you’ve added and your Android Pay settings will be the same on Google Pay.

If you’re already using Android Pay, you don’t need to do anything to get started with Google Pay. The next time you update your Android Pay app, it’ll become Google Pay. Learn how to update your app*.

You can enjoy all the benefits and security of your Arvest Bank debit card while using Google Pay. It's the simple, secure and private way to make purchases using compatible Android™ devices.** With the Google Pay app, you can snap a photo of your card and place your unlocked device near a contactless terminal to make purchases at more than a million stores*, online, and in apps.

Google Pay provides privacy and security during and after each transaction by:

  • Allowing you to leave your card in your purse or pocket;
  • Using a unique virtual account number instead of your actual card number; and
  • Sending you a notification (including the name and number of the store) after every transaction.

Consumers Find Convenience, Security in Digital Wallets

Thursday, July 13 at 10:00 AM
Category: Personal Finance

It’s no secret mobile phones serve consumers as more than just a communication device these days.

Smartphones alternate as cameras, navigation tools, encyclopedias and other resources on a daily basis. And as digital devices offer more and more, the more irreplaceable they become to those same consumers.

Enter the digital wallet of the 21st century. Payment options like Apple Pay™, Android Pay™ and Samsung Pay are increasing in popularity among the digital consumer. This means more and more smartphones also are alternating as wallets for many consumers.

This is especially true among Millennials. According to an August 2016 study published in The Financial Brand, 21 percent of these digital natives don’t carry or use cash for purchases, and 53 percent choose to pay only by debit or credit card. The shift in payment preferences is also growing among consumers of other age groups, as they become more familiar with the benefits of using a digital wallet.

Arvest Bank believes mobile payments are an easier and safer form of payment than most consumers realize, and digital wallets have the potential to be the dominant form of payment in the future, although cash and credit will always be options.

The biggest advantage of the digital wallet is convenience. Consumers can leave their traditional wallets at home and use a mobile payment option for everything from ordering coffee to shopping to ride sharing.

The potential for identity theft gives wary consumers pause when it comes to trusting technology with their money, but financial experts say contactless payments are more secure than using cash or a debit or credit card. Whereas cash can be lost or stolen, and debit or credit cards can be compromised, digital wallets offer multiple layers of protection against identity theft.

A customer’s account number that is stored in a digital wallet is never shared with the merchant. Instead, the technology in the phone produces a different code for every transaction, greatly lowering the chance for identity theft. Many digital wallets also require a password or fingerprint to authorize and finalize payment, which is added security in the event a phone is lost or stolen.

Integration with pre-existing loyalty and coupon programs is another driver of mobile payment adoption, and web-based data and statistics company Statista projected mobile payments to rise from less than $10 billion in 2015 to more than $300 billion in 2020 in a recent report.

Similar to mobile phones, digital wallets are becoming more comprehensive in what they offer. As consumers increase their adoption and fuel broader integration among retailers, the future of the digital wallet could expand well beyond users’ expectations.

Android Pay and Samsung Pay Compatibility Delayed

Tuesday, November 22 at 08:00 AM
Category: Arvest News

Android Pay and Samsung Pay availability to Arvest debit and credit cardholders has been delayed. Arvest is not able to move forward with the launch of Android Pay and Samsung Pay until our card processing partner completes its work. At this time we do not have a release date. We understand this is disappointing for you, our valued customers, and for us. We apologize for previously communicating Android Pay and Samsung Pay would be ready in late 2016.

Once Android Pay and Samsung Pay are available we’ll announce it on Facebook and Twitter

We’re sorry for this delay and are anxious to bring this capability to our customers.
