Offering an Easy, Secure & Private Way to Pay
ATLANTA & BARCELONA, Spain--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 29, 2017--
Comercia Global Payments EP, S.L, a joint venture between U.S.-based
Global Payments Inc. (NYSE: GPN), a leading worldwide provider of
payment technology services, and CaixaBank, the leader in retail banking
in Spain, announced today that it now brings its customers Apple Pay,
which is transforming mobile payments with an easy, secure and private
way to pay that’s fast and convenient.
Using the new CaixaBank Pay app users can now add their Caixabank cards
to Apple Wallet and seamlessly use Apple Pay for purchases at any
contactless enabled retail location.
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.
"With Apple Pay, we continue to focus on implementing and delivering
technology enabled, software driven solutions that enhance the customer
experience globally," said Joan Morlà Tomàs President of Comercia Global
Payments. "Given the widespread mobile device adoption across Spain,
extending our omnichannel acquiring services allows us to be at the
forefront in delivering cutting-edge mobile payment solutions in Spain
and across Europe."
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. In stores,
Apple Pay works with iPhone SE, iPhone 6 and later, and Apple Watch.
Using Apple Pay is simple with Touch ID, or just double-click the side
button and glance at your iPhone X to authenticate with Face ID. When
paying for goods and services on the go, Apple Pay works with iPhone 6
and later, iPhone SE and Apple Watch.
