Tbilisi, Georgia, July 13, 2020
Together with the Georgian bank Halyk Bank, Pri-Num successfully added Apple Pay contactless payments feature for Mastercard cardholders.
Now the bank’s customers will be able to use their smartphones to make payments wherever Mastercard technology is accepted.
Apple Pay is a contactless payment technology that enables users of Apple devices to pay quickly, securely, and conveniently.
It also saves them from having to carry a card or wallet, enter billing information, and fill out lengthy invoice forms.
To make a payment online, in a store or in transport, you only need an iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, or Mac device.
Security and privacy are at the core of Apple Pay.
When you use a credit or debit card with Apple Pay, the actual card number is not stored on the device or on Apple servers. Apple Pay is easy to set up and users can enjoy all the bonuses and benefits the bank has to offer.
Halyk Bank Georgia customers only need to add their card to an Apple Wallet on their phone once. Payments will only need to be confirmed using Touch ID or Face ID.
According to Mastercard, Georgia is one of the leaders in the CEMEA region in the use of contactless payment methods. Almost every other transaction made here using a payment card is contactless. In addition, 74% of smartphone users in Georgia prefer to use this device to any other payment instrument.
As with the launch of Apple Pay for Visa cardholders for Halyk Bank Georgia, we have implemented the technical side of the project and took an active part at every stage, advising our colleagues.
“We have always viewed Georgia as a promising region for the development of contactless payments and are delighted to contribute to another important launch for our partners, Halyk Bank.
By offering and implementing innovative payment solutions, we strive to help banks transform and implement modern technologies. We also want convenient payment solutions to be available to as many Halyk Bank clients in Georgia as possible.
Congratulations to the bank’s clients, all involved, and especially the Pri-Num and Halyk Bank Georgia teams with another successfully implemented project,” the Pri-Num team says.
