Starting today, Apple Pay payments are also available for Alpha Bank Romania customers with Mastercard cards. Apple Pay is a simpler, more secure and personal way to pay, helping customers avoid handing their card to another person to make a payment, tapping POS buttons or paying in cash – using iPhone features that protect every transaction.

To make a contactless payment, customers simply need to bring their iPhone or Apple Watch close to a payment terminal. Every Apple Pay purchase is secure because it is authenticated with Face ID, Touch ID or device passcode, and a dynamic, unique security code. Apple Pay is accepted in grocery stores, pharmacies, taxis, restaurants, cafes, retail stores and many other places.

Customers can also use Apple Pay on their iPhone, iPad and Mac to make quick and easy in-app or web purchases in Safari without having to create accounts or repeatedly enter shipping and billing information. Apple Pay simplifies payment for grocery deliveries, online shopping, transportation and parking, among other things. Apple Pay can also be used to make in-app payments on Apple Watch.

Security and privacy are fundamental to Apple Pay. When customers use a credit or debit card with Apple Pay, card numbers are not stored on the device or on Apple’s servers. Instead, a unique device account number is assigned, encrypted and securely stored in Secure Element, a certified, industry-standard chip designed to store payment information securely on the device.

Apple Pay is easy to set up. On your iPhone, open the Wallet app, tap + and follow the steps to add credit or debit Mastercard cards issued by Alpha Bank Romania. Once a customer adds a card to their iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad and Mac, they can immediately start using Apple Pay on that device. Customers will continue to receive the benefits offered by Mastercard cards issued by Alpha Bank Romania.
