BNL BNP Paribas Group, one of the best-known Italian banks, 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. Apple Pay will be available to more than 2.5 million BNL customers across Italy.
Apple Pay integration with BNL, Mastercard and Maestro Cards is dramatically increasing the bank’s mobile payments offer, helping customers to achieve their needs and strengthening BNL and BNP Paribas Group’s innovation and digital strategy.
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.
Marta Feltrin, Head of Digital Evolution and Non Banking Offer of BNL BNP Paribas Group said: “BNL is expanding its digital services platform, offering innovative customer experiences also by partnership with the most important players in ITC. Apple Pay represents a great opportunity for BNL to exploit all the advantages of our payment cards, to facilitate the use experience and be aligned with the industry evolution. Our customers are changing the way they pay needing a fast and secure solution as Apple Pay. With Apple Pay our clients can use the digital cards to make payments all over the world.”
Apple Pay is easy to set up and users will continue to receive all of the rewards and beneﬁts offered by BNL BNP Paribas Group credit and debit cards.
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.
