A safer, more secure and private way to pay with iPhone and Apple Watch
Luxembourg, July 7th,
2020 – Advanzia Bank, the European digital bank specialising in credit cards
and payment solutions, today brings its German customers Apple Pay, a safer,
more secure and private way to pay that helps customers avoid handing their
payment card to someone else, touching physical buttons or exchanging cash —
and uses the power of iPhone to protect every transaction.
Customers simply hold their iPhone or Apple Watch near a
payment terminal to make a contactless payment. Every Apple Pay purchase is
secure because it is authenticated with Face ID, Touch ID, or device passcode,
as well as a one-time unique dynamic security code. Apple Pay is accepted in
grocery stores, pharmacies, taxis, restaurants, coffee shops, retail stores,
and many more places.
Customers can also use Apple Pay on iPhone, iPad, and Mac to
make faster and more convenient purchases in apps or on the web in Safari
without having to create accounts or repeatedly type in shipping and billing
information. Apple Pay makes it easier to pay for food and grocery deliveries,
online shopping, transportation, and parking, among other things. Apple Pay can
also be used to make payments in apps on Apple Watch.
Security and privacy are at the core of Apple Pay. When
customers use a credit card with Apple Pay, the actual card numbers are not
stored on the device, nor on Apple servers. Instead, a unique Device Account
Number is assigned, encrypted, and securely stored in the Secure Element, an
industry-standard, certified chip designed to store the payment information
safely on the device.
Apple Pay is easy to set up. On iPhone, simply open the
Wallet app, tap +, and follow the steps to add Advanzia’s Mastercard Gold credit
cards. Once a customer adds a card to iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, and Mac, they
can start using Apple Pay on that device right away. Customers will continue to
receive all of the rewards and benefits offered by Advanzia’s cards.
