Start using your mobile Western Card 

Your phone must be awake to use your mobile Western Card, but you do not need to unlock it. Tap the power button to wake the screen and tap your phone against the reader.

Note: the antenna location may vary by device, although it is often in the middle of the phone. As a result, you may have to adjust the orientation of your phone against the reader to have your mobile credential recognized. 

  • To display your Western Card, open the Transact eAccounts app and select the View in Google Wallet icon.
  • Contact information for the Western Card Office is also available from the Western Card menu in Google Wallet.
