What exactly is Chase Pay?

Chase Pay is a digital platform for Chase customers that allows them to pay online and through the app. The Chase Pay app can be used at various in-store locations such as airport restaurants and shops, gas stations, retailers and grocery stores. Here’s a complete list of merchants that accept Chase Pay.

Chase customers can use their debit or credit card to pay quickly and securely. Popular Chase credit cards include the Chase Sapphire Reserve and Sapphire Preferred.

Reasons to use Chase Pay

Your credit card information will never be shared with the merchant because Chase Pay uses a “token” (algorithmically generated numbers) in lieu of your credit card. This means your data will never be passed to merchants when you shop online or with the app.

The app also allows you to order food at participating restaurants ahead of time so it’s ready for you to pick it up.

There are also various deals, called Chase Offers, you can take advantage of by using the app. For example, you can get a $10 off a restaurant order or extra points for using Chase Pay at a particular store.

There are also discounts for using it at Shell and 76 gas stations along with the benefits that come with Chase credit cards.

How to access Chase Pay

There are two ways to log in — one is through your computer. Log into your Chase account as usual and in the top left menu and click on “Pay and Transfer.”

Then click on the Chase Pay option.

Chase Pay app

Download the Chase Pay app to your phone and log in with your existing Chase credentials. After it’s downloaded, turn on your Chase location settings so you can see which merchants around you accept Chase Pay.  

It also gives you the option to use your Ultimate Rewards points to pay for items. Keep in mind there are other ways to get maximize your points, including booking travel or purchasing items through the Ultimate Rewards portal.
