Santander Mastercards Now Available on Apple Pay

April 26, 2017, Written By Natalie Rutledge

Santander Bank customers can now add their Mastercard debit and credit cards to Apple Pay. This adds to the 1,800+ banks compatible with Apple’s mobile wallet.

Santander Mastercards can be used through Apple Pay anywhere the mobile wallet is accepted, including websites that feature Apple Pay. Santander has a full set of instructions on its website that explain how to link a debit or credit card to Apple Pay and which devices are compatible with the wallet.

In recent months, Santander has revamped its mobile banking app to be more convenient and secure. Account holders can now use the app to deposit checks with their mobile devices or pay bills. Santander improved the navigation on the app to make it easier for people to access such things as their account balances and money transfer portals. The app supports Touch ID login, so users with compatible devices can use their fingerprints to log into their accounts.

The Santander app is available for Apple and Android devices, but Apple Pay is only available for Apple products. Santander cards are compatible with Android Pay in the UK, but cannot currently be used with the U.S. version of the mobile wallet.
