Apple Pay Coming to Mastercard's Customers in Great Duchy of Luxembourg
Offering an Easy, Secure & Private Way to Pay
BGL BNP Paribas, today brings its Mastercard cardholders 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.
The Mastercard Digital Enablement Service (MDES) is key to enabling Mastercard credit cardholders to use Apple Pay. It is a secure payment system that has been built with ‘EMV cryptography’ – ensuring that transactions can take full advantage of the most advanced payment security in the world.
Security and privacy is at the core of Apple Pay. When you use a Mastercard 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. Henri Dewaerheijd, Country Manager Mastercard BeLux: “We are very happy to couple our MDES solution to Apple Pay. This highly secure tokenization process guarantees secure and fast transactions.”
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.
