Bank of the West has added the Scan to Pay capability to its mobile banking app. Snap-to-Pay enables customers to pay bills with a snap of their smartphone camera. Bank of the West is the first to launch Snap-to-Pay, branded for their customers as Scan to Pay.
Scan to Pay is very user-friendly. It allows consumers to set up and pay a new bill. Essential bill information, such as the company to be paid and the account number, is captured by taking a picture of a paper bill, and then used to automatically populate the appropriate fields on the smartphone screen.
“As a relationship bank, we are squarely focused on enabling customers to bank with us on their terms. Scan to Pay is a perfect example of letting our customers choose how, when and where they want to bank with us,” said Andy Harmening, senior executive vice president and head of regional banking for Bank of the West. “We are proud to offer Bank of the West customers an innovative solution that is exclusive to our bank.”
Scan to Pay is deeply coherent with the general policy of the BNP Paribas Group, always striving for innovation, to serve its customers.
