Banco Santander launches NFC-based mobile payments in Chile

Tuesday 20 November 2018 | 11:30 CET | News
Banco Santander has announced the launch of its Santander Wallet app in Chile, allowing consumers to pay in stores using their phone's contactless technology. The Android app, available via Google Play, uses the smartphone's NFC technology to communicate with the retailer's point of sale system. Once a Santander Mastercard is chosen, users can simply pay by placing their phone close to the contactless POS. Banco Santander-Chile said it's the first financial entity in the country to implement a genuine NFC-based mobile payment system.
