You can now withdraw cash from your Bank of America account using Apple Pay. Users on Reddit have already begun to see compatible ATM machines throughout America, like the one pictured above in Redondo Beach, California.
“Apple Pay, Android Pay, and Samsung Pay can be used to make withdrawals and transfers at Bank of America ATMs without the need for a physical card,” explains Reddit user WhatWhatTech. “This only works at some Bank of America ATMs, but it’s scheduled to roll out to all Bank of America ATMs this year.”
Compatible ATMs are equipped with an NFC reader, which lets them communicate wirelessly with your iPhone when you hold it up to the machine. Your fingerprint then authenticates your withdrawal and allows you to grab your cash.
Bank of America is said to be promoting Apple Pay support on compatible ATMs, so you probably won’t miss it when you stumble across one. However, it should be noted that only Bank of America cards and accounts are supported at this time.
If you attempt to use another card, the ATM might allow you to move past the PIN entry and amount selection screens, WhatWhatTech says. But then they will get stuck when attempting to process your cash.
“The ATM gave an error that the transaction was not supported and that the card should be inserted in the card slot to continue with the transaction, so third party cards seem to not work at this point.”
Other U.S. banks are looking to catch up with Bank of America. Chase announced a similar feature earlier this year, and Wells Fargo has confirmed it is working on it.[Via 9to5Mac]
