N26 is now live with Apple Pay in France

posted by Daniel Schwarzmueller • News • October 24, 2017

At N26, we believe barriers are made to be broken and that there is always a simpler way to do the things you want to do. That’s why today we are launching Apple Pay in France to give N26 customers there the ability to pay with their Apple devices.

What is Apple Pay?

Apple Pay is a mobile payment system that makes it easy to use your Apple devices to pay in stores, apps, and on the web. It integrates directly with your N26 bank account, meaning you can quickly add your Mastercard to Apple Pay right in the N26 App. After quick card verification, customers can already start making payments. Since it’s fully integrated with your Mastercard, you’ll see your transactions in real-time and receive push notifications.

Using Apple Pay

Apple Pay is exciting because of its almost endless possibilities. You can make payments in stores, secure payments online, and pay in apps. It uses the NFC technology in your Apple device for easy contactless payments. Hold your Apple device next to the reader, confirm with your fingerprint and go. In apps, you can also use Apple Pay to order things like food or a taxi.

Since Apple Pay doesn’t store your card information on your device or share it when you pay, it is more secure than normal card payments. It’s the perfect marriage of security and convenience.

With Apple Pay, our French customers have another way to manage their money and make mobile payments with the devices they love. We’re excited to see what you all think of it. Let us know what in the comments below. Not in France? Don’t worry, we’ll be launching in other European countries soon.
