UK banking group NatWest recently announced it is bringing Apple Pay to its Business credit card customers. NatWest reported that the option will provide a safer, more secure, and private way to pay, as well as helping customers avoid handing their payment card to someone else.
NatWest further revealed that it, along with Royal Bank of Scotland and Ulster Bank, have integrated Apple Pay across a range of Mastercard credit and charge cards for its Business and Commercial Banking customer base.
“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.”
Speaking about the new offer, Matt Tuck, Head of Customer Propositions & Delivery, Commercial Banking, NatWest Group, stated:
“Apple Pay allows customers to make safe, fast payments with minimal effort. This innovation supports our broader efforts to assist customers during this time with flexible, safe and easy options, and ultimately helps them to continue running their business.”
NatWest then added that customers may 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.
