Germany-based payment service provider Wirecard is launching its mobile payment solution boon in Switzerland, following introductions in the UK and France. Boon is based upon a digital prepaid Mastercard, issued by Wirecard Card Solutions and works in combination with Apple Pay. The virtual credit card allows users to top-up their account via debit or credit card. The app enables smartphone payments at any NFC-capable point-of-sale terminal which accepts Mastercard Contactless payments. In stores, Apple Pay works with iPhone SE, iPhone 6 and later, and Apple Watch.
