Under the agreement, Westpac will participate in FitPay's Token Requester Program, which enables cardholders to securely add their payment credentials to devices that are integrated with FitPay's token management solution. The platform uses tokenization, a payment security technology that replaces cardholders' account information with a unique digital identifier (a "token"), to transact highly secure contactless payments. It allows consumers to pay at near-field communication-enabled point-of-sale terminals with a simple tap.

The FitPay Trusted Token Manager provides contactless payment capabilities and full digital wallet functionality to a variety of IoT and wearable devices. The Platform powers the Garmin Pay™ capability on several recently launched smartwatches by Garmin. Garmin Pay is currently enabled on the vívoactive® 3, the vívoactive 3 Music, the Forerunner® 645, the Forerunner 645 Music, and the fēnix® 5 Plus series.

"Westpac has a long tradition of using technology to make its customers lives easier," said Michael Orlando, COO of NXT-ID and President of Fit Pay, Inc. "Extending payments to more devices gives Westpac customers greater flexibility in how they pay and helps fit how they pay more seamlessly into how they live."
