Never Forget Your Card Again (with Interior’s Digital Wallet!)

Tired of fumbling with your wallet at checkout? Or maybe you’ve even lost or forgotten your card a few times and not realized until the last minute? Hate repeatedly having to enter your card details in every online purchase? Ditch your bulky wallet and make payments more conveniently, securely, and confidently by adding your cards to your digital wallet! With a digital wallet, you can tap your way to a faster, more convenient payment experience. Plus, you’ll never have to worry about digging through a pile of receipts or loose change again. That’s not all – digital wallets also make earning rewards, like points and cashback, so much easier! Take the leap and join the millions who are already enjoying the benefits of digital payments.

What Makes a Digital Wallet Better?

  1. Convenience: With a digital wallet, you don’t need to carry around physical cards anymore. Digital wallets allow you to store all your payment cards in one place, making it easy to access them when needed. This can be especially helpful when traveling or running errands. You can simply use your smartphone to make payments on the go, saving you time and hassle.


  1. Security: Digital wallets use advanced security features, like tokenization, to protect your payment information, making them more secure than traditional payment methods. Your card details are not stored on your phone or in the digital wallet app itself, which can help protect your payment information from fraud and identity theft.


  1. Accessibility: Digital wallets are compatible with a wide range of merchants and payment terminals, making it easier for you to make payments at more places. You can simply tap your phone or smartwatch to make a payment (it’s so convenient in the Starbucks drive thru!) Online payments can also be made so much simpler. Just choose your digital wallet to pay and your shipping and billing info will be automatically filled!


  1. Rewards: Using a digital wallet makes accumulating rewards like points, cashback, and fuel redemption much quicker. This can help you earn more as you spend more over time.


  1. Organization: Digital wallets can help you keep track of your spending and transaction history, making it easier for you to manage your finances and stay on top of your budget. Check your recent transactions right in your native digital wallet app. This can be helpful if you’re trying to stick to a specific spending plan, monitor your expenses more closely, or combat stolen card information.
