TUPELO, Miss., Aug. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Renasant Corporation (NASDAQ: RNST) (the "Company") announced today that MasterCard cardholders with a Renasant Bank MasterCard® Debit Card now have access to faster, more secure everyday payments through Apple Pay™. Renasant clients can pay wherever Apple Pay is accepted and enjoy the added freedom of mobile payments and enhanced payment security.
"We are excited to offer our clients the opportunity to use Apple Pay with their Renasant Bank MasterCard Debit Card," said John Oxford, Director of Corporate Communication and External Affairs for Renasant. "Adding Apple Pay to our retail banking product line is further evidence of our continued commitment to mobile and online banking technology and meeting the digital banking needs of our clients."
Not only are payments quicker with Renasant Bank MasterCard® Debit Card and Apple Pay, they are more secure. When you add your card to Apple Pay, the actual card numbers are not stored on the device, nor on Apple servers. Instead, a unique Device Account Number is assigned, encrypted and securely stored in the Secure Element on your device. Each transaction is authorized with a one-time unique dynamic security code. And, if a device is lost or stolen, you can use Find My iPhone to quickly put it in Lost Mode to suspend Apple Pay, or you can wipe your device clean completely or stop the ability to make payments on iCloud.com.
Apple Pay is easy to set up and users will continue to receive all of the rewards and beneﬁts offered by credit and debit cards. In stores, Apple Pay works with iPhone® 6, iPhone® 6 Plus and Apple Watch™. When paying for goods and services within apps, Apple Pay is compatible with iPhone® 6, iPhone® 6 Plus, iPad Air® 2 and iPad Mini™ 3.
