Wirecards mobile payment solution now available on Fitbit Pay

Tuesday 17 April 2018 13:19 CET | News

Wirecard has collaborated with Fitbit, a US-based wearables company, to provide contactless payments using Fitbit Pay.

All Fitbit Pay customers in Europe will be able to make mobile payments at the point of sale. Users from Italy, Ireland, Spain, Switzerland and the UK will be able to add their digital boon cards to Fitbit Pay and make purchases with their Fitbit Ionic or Fitbit Versa smartwatch devices anywhere Mastercard Contactless is accepted.

Fitbit Pay can be set-up on Fitbit Ionic and Fitbit Versa by following the steps in the Fitbit mobile app to add a credit or debit card to the user’s Fitbit Wallet. To pay, they simply press and hold the left button until the debit or credit card is seen on the smartwatch screen, and hold the watch against the payment terminal until a payment confirmation appears on the device screen. 

Fitbit Pay uses an industry-standard tokenization platform; a user’s card information is never revealed or shared with merchants or Fitbit, a personal 4-digit PIN code being chosen by the user during device set-up for an added layer of protection.
