IMG_5256JPMorgan Chase said that its Chase unit is discontinuing the standalone Chase Pay app early next year, although it is not shutting down Chase Pay.

The move comes as additional merchants are adding Chase Pay as a checkout option.

“We’re closing the Chase Pay app in early 2020,” the bank said in a letter to customers.  “You’ll still find Chase Pay as a payment option in more of your favorite websites and apps.”

Customers are using the Chase Pay button in apps and on shopping websites more than ever, the bank said in a statement As a result, “we’re shifting our focus to expand Chase Pay’s presence in more merchant apps and websites,” said Eric Connolly, head of Chase Pay.

The bank has 51 million “digitally active” customers that use Chase-issued debit and credit cards. Major companies that support Chase Pay include United Airlines, Shell, and Starbucks.  Chase said it has already added the popular merchant discount feature from Chase Pay into the Chase Mobile app as well.
