German saving banks allow girocard use for payments with Apple Pay

Wednesday 26 August 2020 | 10:43 CET | News
German savings banks association Sparkasse said its customers can now also use their girocard for payments with Apple Pay. From now on, around 46 million Sparkasse cards can be used at over 756,000 contactless card payment terminals. Purchases with Apple Pay are safe because authentication is done via Face ID (facial recognition), touch ID (fingerprint) or device code, as well as with a unique dynamic security code.
