In 1983, the ATH® network revolutionized the way we used our cash by replacing it with a plastic card. Today we announce innovative services that will substitute the card with your cellular phone. We always talk about returning back to our homes if we left our cell phones behind, however this doesn’t always applies when we forget our wallets. With these innovative services that we have for you in the coming months, we will contribute to that tendency.
The following is an advance of some of the services that will be available soon:
With placing your mobile phone near an NFC payment station you will be able to pay for your purchases with your Banco Popular credit card faster and without having to present your card at the register. The service will work with smartphones running the Android™ operating system.
Mobile Cardless Withdrawals
With this service you will be able to withdraw money from ATH® machines using your smartphone without the need of inserting your Banco Popular ATH® card. You only have to connect to Mi Banco Mobile app, indicate the amount you wish to withdraw and visit one of our ATH machines to withdraw your money in just seconds by using your cell phone.
ATH Móvil in Mi Banco Mobile App
One password, one app to transfer money to family and friends. Soon you will be able to use ATH Móvil directly in Mi Banco Móvil. You will no longer need two apps installed in your smartphone because you will able to transfer money from Popular’s app, available for iPhone®, iPad®, Apple Watch™ and Android™.
We will announce more details about these new and innovative features soon. Let us know what you think about all these innovations and which one would you like to see.
