Offering an Easy, Secure & Private Way to Pay
BGL BNP Paribas today brings its customers Apple Pay, which is transforming payments with an easy, secure and private way to pay. With Apple Pay on iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad and Mac, customers can make fast and convenient purchases in stores, in apps and on websites.
In Europe, the proportion of payments made via smartphone continues to rise, with the penetration of mobile devices and the increasing volume of uses representing significant development potential for the mobile payment market. BGL BNP Paribas is actively contributing to the development of mobile payment solutions in Luxembourg. From today, BGL BNP Paribas brings its customers Apple Pay for daily contactless payments with V PAY, Visa and Mastercard cards.
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.
Geoffroy Bazin, Chairman of BGL BNP Paribas’ Executive Committee and Country Head of the BNP Paribas Group in Luxembourg, states: “I am delighted that BGL BNP Paribas is now bringing Apple Pay to its customers. We are continuously improving our range of products and services to capitalize on the latest technological developments and respond to the changing needs and expectations of our clients. Mobile payments are increasingly in demand, and with Apple Pay we will offer our clients a fast, secure and easy-to-use solution”.
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.
With iPhone and Apple Watch, customers can pay with Apple Pay in stores, restaurants, taxis 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.
