Mobile Wallets

Apple Pay™ and City National. Simple, secure and convenient.

With Apple Pay and Google Pay™, you can make purchases with a single touch using an eligible device1. Add your personal City National Visa Check and Credit Cards2 to Apple or Google Pay for a quick, secure and convenient way to make payments in-store or in-app at participating stores nationwide.

How Does it Work?

In-Store Purchases: Mobile Wallets use Near Field Communication (NFC) technology to wirelessly transmit payment information from eligible phone or wearables to a contactless point-of-sale (POS) terminal within close proximity.

In-App Purchases: You can also use Apple or Google Pay to pay with a single touch within apps. Checking out is as easy as selecting Apple or Google Pay and placing your finger on Touch ID.

A Secure Way to Pay

Instead of using your actual payment card number, Mobile assigns and uses a substitute account number, or token. Your card information is never stored on your device or shared with merchants.  When you use Apple & Google Pay, merchants only receive the token and a unique transaction code to process the payment.

Set up is simple

Add your City National Visa Cards to Apple or Google Pay and start enjoying our out-of-wallet experience.

Open your payment app and get started now:

  1. Press + (upper right corner).
  2. Select Add Another Card
  3. Key in the card information or use the device’s camera to capture the information.
  4. Accept the Terms & Conditions and begin the activation process.
  5. For security reasons, additional bank verification may be required, in which case you will be guided through the verification process. Which may include texting you a verification code to enter on your mobile wallet.

Make sure your City National Visa Check or Credit Card is the default payment card in Apple Pay.

  • If your City National Visa Card is the first card you enroll, it will automatically be your default. 
  • Otherwise, go to "Settings". Choose "Default card" then select your City National Visa Check or Credit Card.
