FNB launches support for Fitbit Pay & Garmin Pay

Thursday 2 August 2018 | 11:21 CET | News
FNB said that customers can now make payments through their Visa-enabled FNB banking cards by tapping their compatible Fitbit or Garmin wearable device on any contactless point-of-sale terminal. They select the wallet feature and then tap their wearable on the contactless PoS, just as they would when paying with their FNB Pay-enabled smartphone or contactless card.
