An Post releases Apple Pay addition to its current account offering
By Megha Bhattacharya
Dublin-based An Post has announced the addition of Apple Pay functionality to its An Post Money Current Account. An Post Money Current Account customers can now benefit from their Mastercard debit card with Apple Pay on iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad and Mac. The new addition can be used for contactless purchases above the €50 limit in countless shops, apps and online.
John Rice, Financial Services Director for An Post said, “The addition of Apple Pay is another good reason why customers are turning to the An Post Money Current Account debit card. The card has been key to An Post’s move into a wider range of financial services and another example of our commitment to being human about money.”
Every Apple Pay purchase 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.
The addition of Apple Pay feature will allow customers on iPhone to simply open the Wallet app, tap +, and follow the steps to add eligible NatWest Group 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. Customers will continue to receive all of the beneﬁts offered by An Post and Mastercard cards.
Sonya Geelon, Country Manager, Mastercard Ireland, said, “Using Apple Pay for your everyday purchases couldn’t be easier so we’re delighted this new capability is on offer for An Post Mastercard cardholders. This innovation brings further speed and convenience when making payments, all underpinned by the safety and security you would expect from Mastercard.”
