Pri-Num and Halyk Bank launch Apple Pay for Visa cardholders

Tbilisi, Georgia, July 13, 2020

Together with Pri-Num and Visa, Halyk Georgia Bank launched contactless payments via Apple Pay for Visa cardholders.

Apple’s popular payment service is now available to Halyk Bank customers.
Apple works with many banks around the world, giving its customers the ability to pay quickly and safely.

Apple Pay is a contactless payment application for Apple devices.
It is a simple, secure, and personalized payment method that is highly relevant for the current mobile payment market, offering speed and convenience.
With Apple Pay, you can make purchases on the Internet, pay for purchases in stores and applications using the iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, or Mac.
Instant payments can be made wherever contactless payment technology is supported. You only need a device that is always at hand (even when there is no Internet).

Apple Pay payment security is powered by Visa security tokens.
When using a credit or debit card with Apple Pay, the actual card number is not stored on the device or Apple servers and is not transmitted to the seller.
This is possible due to the fact that these cards are replaced by a Visa security system with a set of numbers (tokens), which allows users to make payments without fear of fraud or information leakage.

In order to take advantage of Apple Pay, Visa cardholders at Halyk Bank just need to add their card to an Apple Wallet on their phone.
It is enough to snap their card once and confirm subsequent payments using Touch ID or Face ID. Done! 
Now the bank’s customers are able to make instant contactless payments.
Apple Pay also eliminates the need to fill out long invoice forms, re-enter billing information, and carry a card or wallet.

The security of Apple Pay payments for Halyk Bank customers is ensured through the integration of  Pri-Num’s ITS platform modules.
The Pri-Num team implemented the project from the technical side and took an active part, advising colleagues from Halyk Bank at each stage of the project.

“Congratulations to partners and customers of Halyk Bank on an important launch, which will significantly expand opportunities for the bank and its customers.
Technical implementation is the result of the maximum commitment of Pri-Num experts and our partners.
We are pleased to successfully complete another joint project and to open the world of modern contactless payment methods to the bank customers!” Pri-Num team commented.
