Chase to Focus Chase Pay on Merchant Apps And Websites; Will Close Its Own Stand-Alone App
NEW YORK, NY Aug 21, 2019 Chase customers will soon be able to use Chase Pay in more merchant apps including Grubhub and with many more merchant websites in the coming months, the bank announced today. The bank will close its stand-alone Chase Pay app in early 2020.
“We continue to focus on our customers and they are using the Chase Pay button on merchant websites and in merchant apps, and now their tap-to-pay Chase cards more than ever,” said Eric Connolly, Head of Chase Pay. “So, we’re shifting our focus to expand Chase Pay’s presence in more merchant apps and websites.”
“This will make it quick and easy for Chase’s 51 million digitally active customers to use their Chase-issued Visa debit and credit cards at more places. They already are using Chase Pay on websites and in merchant apps such as Starbucks, Shell, United and Atom Tickets. They can also link Chase Pay to their PayPal account to shop at millions of places online.”
Customers soon can use Chase Pay:
- In the apps for Grubhub and its portfolio company LevelUp
- In the new Chase Center venue app launching for the 2019-20 Golden State Warriors season
- With the more than 60,000 merchants in the Big Commerce network
“Customers love that they can save time and money using the Chase Pay button,” Connolly said.
Merchants can easily reward customers for using Chase Pay on their websites or in their apps. For example, United Airlines is offering extra miles to UnitedSM Visa® customers who use Chase Pay to purchase flights on United.com from August 15 through October 15 this year.
Chase already has incorporated merchant discounts – a popular feature of the Chase Pay app -- into the Chase Mobile app and offered it to its 35 million regular users.
