Conotoxia enables multi-currency card payments in Google Pay, Fitbit & Garmin
By Megha Bhattacharya
Conotoxia announced that holders of its multi-currency cards can make contactless payments with their phone and smartwatch, use online payments and withdraw cash from ATMs using Google Pay. The only requirement is to have the Google Pay app, available in the Google Play store, and to connect the card to it – this applies to both physical and virtual card versions. They also have the option to conduct contactless payments with their wearable device and withdraw money from ATMs with Fitbit Pay and Garmin Pay.
“We always aim to be as comprehensive as possible. People are opting more and more for modern forms of payment. They do not always have their wallet or payment card with them, and they want to be able to do their shopping quickly and conveniently, but also safely. This is the future of financial services, and we are evolving together with our customers and their expectations,” says Piotr Kicinski, Vice-President of Cinkciarz.pl, a company belonging to Conotoxia holding.
Adding multi-currency cards to Fitbit Pay and Garmin Pay will allow users to withdraw cash from ATM as well as make quick and secure payments anywhere contactless payments are accepted, without pulling out a wallet or phone. Fitbit Pay and Garmin Pay use a tokenization platform to protect the card information which is never shared with merchants, Fitbit or Garmin.
Recently, Poland-based payment institution Conotoxia launched a new online multi-currency lending service. The company said that users can decide on the amount and the currency they need the service in. They can fill in the application form online, and after receiving a positive credit decision, wait for the money. The multi-currency lending service is provided by Currency Lending Sp. z o.o.
