Vodafone SmartPass launches in Germany

Monday 16 December 2013 11:00 CET | News

Vodafone Germany has launched a mobile wallet with the integrated Vodafone SmartPass Visa payment application.

The German provider of electronic payment and risk management services Wirecard is set to handle all technical and financial services for the Vodafone SmartPass card solution.

Customers with an NFC-enabled and wallet-certified smartphone receive a SIM card with the NFC function and can then pay with their Vodafone SmartPass credit at all Visa-certified contactless terminals. Owners of mobile phones without integrated NFC technology can attach a SmartPass NFC sticker to the device. The Visa card information can be used in connection with an NFC SIM card or sticker to enable contactless tap & go payment processing.

In recent news, Vodafone has selected Wirecard as its partner for the launch in Spain of mobile payment service Vodafone SmartPass in partnership with Visa.
