Idaho unwraps digital wallet

Residents of Idaho now have a way to make mobile electronic payments to the Department of Agriculture with eGovExpress Digital Wallet, a “virtual pocketbook” that securely consolidates and stores a user’s payment information into one password-protected online location. The solution paves the way for citizens and businesses to pay multiple government Idaho government entities with only one account.

The eGovExpress Digital Wallet allows users to track their transaction history, create custom notes on a dashboard, make mobile payments via a secure connection and receive email notifications regarding their accounts. Rather than having to repeatedly enter payment information, eGovExpress consolidates credit cards, pre-paid gift cards and electronic check information for user convenience. 

State financial officers can view real-time transaction reports online from mobile devices or computers with Internet access.  All transaction information is password-protected and transmitted via a secure connection.

The service is offered to all levels of Idaho government – agencies, counties, cities and school districts. The digital wallet follows payment card industry standards and integrates with Access Idaho’s secure government payment engine.
