Societe Generale brings personalized credit and debit cards to Apple Pay
Societe Generale announced that before the end of the week customers will be able to personalize the cards they use with Apple Pay.
With Apple Pay on iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad and Mac, customers can make fast and convenient purchases in stores, in apps and on websites.
Societe Generale offers over 180 personalized physical cards, but this marks the first time customers will see the exact same card as they have in their wallet in Apple Pay.
When you use a credit or debit card with Apple Pay, the actual card numbers are not stored on the device, nor on Apple servers. Instead, a unique Device Account Number is assigned, encrypted, and securely stored in the Secure Element on your device. Each transaction is authorized with a one-time unique dynamic security code.
With iPhone and Apple Watch, customers can pay with Apple Pay in stores, restaurants, taxis, vending machines and many more places. When shopping in apps or on the web in Safari with Apple Pay, there’s no need to manually fill out account forms or type in shipping and billing information. Every Apple Pay purchase is authenticated with a glance or touch with Face ID or Touch ID, or a device’s passcode.
