December 8, 2020 – Entercard, today brings all its Scandinavian customers with a re:member card Apple Pay, a safer, more secure and private way to pay that helps customers avoid handing their payment card to someone else, touching physical buttons or exchanging cash — and uses the power of iPhone to protect every transaction.
Danish LO Guldkort customers and all the Swedish cardholders included in the Entercard-partnership with the Swedish trade union LO, will also be able to use their different LO-cards with Apple Pay. Early next year, even more Entercard’s products in Scandinavia will offer Apple Pay. This includes Swedbank customers.
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.
-Entercard wants to offer its customers mobile payment solutions that are easy and secure. With Apple Pay, our customers can make their purchases in shops accepting contactless cards, in apps and on websites or simply by using their Apple watch. We hope this will make our customers’ everyday lives easier and safer, says Freddy Syversen CEO of Entercard Group AB.
Customers can 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. Apple Pay makes it easier to pay for food and grocery deliveries, online shopping, transportation, and parking, among other things. Apple Pay can also be used to make payments in apps on Apple Watch.
Security and privacy are at the core of Apple Pay. When customers 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, an industry-standard, certified chip designed to store the payment information safely on the device.
Apple Pay is easy to set up. On iPhone, simply open the Wallet app, tap +, and follow the steps to add your credit or debit cards. Once a customer adds a card to iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, and Mac, they can start using Apple Pay on that device right away. In the re:member or LO app, tap ‘Add to Apple Wallet’ and select the Entercard debit or credit card(s) to be added to Apple Pay. Customers will continue to receive all of the rewards and beneﬁts offered by Entercard’s cards.
