Sallie Mae innovation means customers can make payments from their wrist
Sallie Mae has kicked off the new year with its latest customer service enhancement: the ability for customers to view and make payments on their student loan accounts from an Apple Watch. Sallie Mae is the first major private student lender to support customer payments from an Apple Watch.
The expansion into wearables comes just weeks after Sallie Mae introduced its mobile app for iPhone and Android devices. The company’s new mobile app lets customers access loan information, including current balance, total amount due, interest rate, and payment history, as well as make loan payments. To perform those functions on an Apple Watch, iPhone users simply sync their phone to the watch.
