Monday 6 May 2019 | 14:28 CET | News
Hungarian bank Erste's MobilePay app was upgraded with a NFC function thanks to the expertise of Cellum's software engineers. As of 7 May, Erste customers will be able to use their Android smartphones as a debit card at any vendor equipped with contactless POS terminals by using the new NFC feature in the Erste MobilePay application. As of June, Visa cards will also be supported by the app for the first time in Hungary. Purchases above HUF 5,000 must be confirmed by either a fingerprint scan or password.
