Germany-based global provider of digital payments and commerce solutions Wirecard announced on Wednesday it brings Austrian customers Apple Pay through its payment app boon. The platform stated:
“With the integration of Apple Pay, Wirecard is delivering on its strategy of consequently driving forward the digitization of payments. With the latest iOS boon app, now available in the Austrian App Store, users can top up their boon account using any Mastercard or Visa credit or debit card and via bank transfer. Security and privacy is 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 authorized with a one-time unique dynamic security code.”
Speaking about the expansion, Georg von Waldenfels, EVP Group Business Development at Wirecard, shared:
“We have already successfully launched boon with Apple Pay in a number of countries. Users have reacted very positively to the fast and convenient payment method. This is why we are particularly delighted to now offer boon via Apple Pay to Austrian consumers. With Apple, we are further advancing the digitization of payment processes.”
Wirecard then added that with iPhone and Apple Watch, customers may pay with Apple Pay in stores, restaurants, taxis, vending machines, and many more places.
