G&D, Caixabank distribute contactless payment bands at MWC

Wednesday 1 March 2017 | 10:02 CET | News
Giesecke & Devrient (G&D) has teamed up with Spanish financial services provider CaixaBank to distribute wearable wristbands for contactless payments at MWC 2017. The wristbands, manufactured by G&D, have a security chip with CaixaBank's payment application as well as an initial balance. As a certified by Visa product, the wristband can be used in shops in Barcelona and worldwide, much like a prepaid chip card, said G&D. It can also be used as a building access control system or as a public transport card thanks to inbuilt NFC contactless technology and various mobile applications.
