"Our mission is to deliver compelling services and technology to exceed the expectations of today’s bank customer."

Popular Community Bank, a subsidiary of Popular, Inc. (Nasdaq: BPOP), today announced the launch of its newest technology release, the enablement of three leading mobile wallets for its debit cards.

Consumer and business banking customers can now enroll their eligible debit cards and pay quickly at participating merchants in store or through an app, using an Apple®, Samsung or Android™ device.

“Mobile wallets are rapidly being adopted by consumers and merchants as a convenient, safe, and fast way to make purchases. We’re proud to now offer the benefit of the latest mobile payment technology to our customers,” said Manuel Chinea, COO of Popular Community Bank. “Our mission is to deliver compelling services and technology to exceed the expectations of today’s bank customer.”

With Apple Pay®, customers can make purchases using an iPhone® or Apple Watch®. Android™ users can pay in-store or in-app through Android Pay™ on their eligible smartphone and select wearables. Customers can also make in-store purchases with Samsung Pay virtually anywhere with an eligible Samsung smartphone.

Enabling debit cards in the three leading mobile wallets is one of several recent digital features Popular Community Bank has deployed. The PIN Password and Touch ID™ features were launched last September as Popular Community Bank prepared for the rollout of Mobile Cash in early 2016.  The bank also rolled out People Pay, a person-to-person payment solution earlier this year.
