Wirecard, a global innovation leader in digital financial technology, brings its German boon customers Apple Pay, which is transforming mobile payments with an easy, secure and private way to pay that’s fast and convenient.
Wirecard consequently drives forward the digitisation of payments to approach new consumers. As of now, the iOS boon app is available at the App Store to users of iOS devices in Germany. Which makes it possible for everybody to use Apple Pay instantly. Users can top up their boon account using any Mastercard or Visa credit card and via bank transfer. As a result, it is not necessary to already own a credit card from a bank supported by Apple Pay.
Security and privacy are at the core of Apple Pay. When you use the boon card information 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 on your device. Each transaction is authorised with a one-time unique dynamic security code.
Georg von Waldenfels, Executive Vice President Consumer Solutions at Wirecard, said: “We welcome the launch of Apple Pay in Germany. We are delighted to now offer boon via Apple Pay to all owners of an Apple device. Together with Apple Pay, we are further enhancing the user experience for consumers and thus advancing the digitisation of payment processes globally.”
Apple Pay is easy to set up and users will continue to receive all of the rewards and beneﬁts offered by credit and debit cards.
