Teens can now use Current with Apple Pay

We’ve got something exciting to share. Apple Pay is now available to Current customers.

With Apple Pay teens can make secure purchases and send and receive money with their Apple mobile device.

Setting up Apple Pay on an iPhone is easy. Open the Wallet app on your iPhone, tap the plus sign icon in the top right corner of the screen, and follow the instructions for adding a debit card.

Why add Apple Pay?
When you work with teenagers and money you learn their preferences pretty quickly. They want control over how they spend. They want to know their account balance at all times. They want instant payments for chores and work. They want visibility into their future cash flow. And they want to pay for things at stores and restaurants using their phone.

It is what they don’t want that is so interesting. They don’t want to have to carry anything but their phone. And they certainly don’t want cash -- it is too easy to lose and there is no record of spending or loans to friends.

Which is where digital payments come in. When we asked teens what we could add to Current to make it better the near universal answer was Apple Pay.

This generation of teens wants to carry one device to do anything and everything.

So what does that mean for the future? For one thing, you don’t want make wallets for a living.
