ITALY, 2017-May-23 — /EPR Retail News/ — Carrefour is now offering its customers IN ITALY the new easy, secure and personalised Apple Pay payment system which is transforming the mobile payments system thanks to its speed and convenience.
Apple Pay functions on POS devices featuring the Contactless logo which can be found in all Carrefour sales outlets and most retailers.
To be able to use Apple Pay in Italy, it is not necessary to open a new bank account; you can simply request the PASS Card at Carrefour Banca counters or on the www.carrefourbanca.it site which works with all Mastercard circuit terminals in the world. PASS Card is the answer to the need for an easy and fast payment method expressed by our customers. Apple Pay not only enables customers to complete payments faster and more efficiently, but also helps to consolidate Carrefour’s position as a cutting-edge player capable of understanding market requirements and the innovations that will transform it.
Security and privacy are a priority for Apple Pay. When you use a credit or debit card through Apple Pay, the card number is not recorded either on the device or the Apple server. Instead, a unique encrypted code, called Device Account Number, is assigned and securely saved in the Secure Element of the actual device. Each transaction is authorised by a unique dynamic security code.
Thanks to the PASS Card, Carrefour meets two goals: to be a precursor in the mobile payments sector and to complement the extensive portfolio of advantages offered to the customers, including PASS Day (10% discount one day a week in member hypermarkets and supermarkets), the collection of extra PAYBACK points and the possibility of paying all the purchases made in Carrefour in 3 installments with zero interest.
Apple Pay is easy to activate and users will continue to receive all the advantages and benefits offered by credit and debit cards. Apple Pay functions in sales outlets through iPhone SE, iPhone 6 devices and subsequent versions and Apple Watch.
Online app purchases and online purchases on Internet sites which accept Apple Pay are as simple as touching the Touch ID sensor with one finger: there is no need to complete long payment forms manually or to click repeatedly on the delivery and billing information. When you make payments on the move for goods or services in the app or on the Safari browser, you can use Apple Pay on devices like iPhone 6 or subsequent versions, Apple Watch or on the new MacBook Pro by means of the Touch ID sensor.
