Bank of America has announced that their cardless ATM’s now support Google’s Android Pay, there are a total of 2,400 of these in the US at the moment and there will be around 5,000 by the end of the year.
These new ATM’s allow you to withdraw cash from your account by using your smartphone and Android Pay.
Bank of America becomes the first bank to begin a broad rollout of the technology, which lets customers withdraw cash, make transfers and check balances using a digital wallet stored on their smartphones. Earlier this year, the bank rolled out the feature to select ATMs in Boston, Charlotte, New York City, San Francisco and Silicon Valley.
“Consumers are increasingly using their mobile devices to manage their daily lives, and we’re committed to delivering solutions that give them convenient and secure options when it comes to managing their money,” said Moore. “Now in addition to using digital wallets for purchases, customers can use them to get cash at the ATM.”
Cardless ATMs allow customers to access most features of Bank of America’s ATMs. Customers can identify cardless-enabled ATMs by the contactless symbol Contactless ATM Symbol near the card reader. When ready to perform a transaction, the customer will select their Bank of America debit card in their digital wallet and hold their device over the ATM’s contactless card reader to activate the ATM. Then, they follow the normal process to enter their PIN, select their account and initiate a withdrawal, transfer, or balance inquiry.
