Apple Pay now available for Buy Way Mastercard Customers Offering an Easy, Secure & Private Way to Pay
Thanks to Buy Way 300.000 Belgian consumers access Apple Pay.
Brussels, November 20, 2019 - After the largest Belgian bank - BNP Paribas Fortis - it is now the turn of Buy Way, Belgium's largest Fintech, to bring to its Apple Pay customers today the technology that offers easy, secure and private payment. With Apple Pay on iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad and Mac, customers can make quick and convenient purchases in stores, apps and websites.
Cardholders of cards managed by Buy Way will be able to pay for their purchases via Apple Pay. Whether they are Mastercard cards issued to retail and banking companies or Buy Way's own cards. Among the happy partners able to offer this new payment experience are IKEA, Makro, MediaMarkt, Electro Dépôt, FNAC, Vanden Borre, bpost bank and Switch.
Security and privacy are at the core of Apple Pay. When you use a credit or debit 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 on your device. Each transaction is authorized with a one-time unique dynamic security code.
Christophe Hamal, CEO of Buy Way, is very enthusiastic: "Buy Way will continue to innovate in order to offer consumers the best possible shopping experience. For them, Apple Pay is now the ultimate in digital payment. As for our retail partners, Apple Pay provides them with a great opportunity in terms of image and visibility.
Apple Pay is easy to set up and users will continue to enjoy the benefits of the cards managed by Buy Way.
With iPhone and Apple Watch, customers can pay with Apple Pay in stores, restaurants, taxis, vending machines and many more places. When shopping in apps or on the web in Safari with Apple Pay, there’s no need to manually fill out lengthy account forms or repeatedly type in shipping and billing information. Every Apple Pay purchase is authenticated with just a glance or a touch with Face ID or Touch ID, or a device's passcode.
