Thales brings contactless payment functionalities to Axis Bank's Wear 'N' Pay wearables programme

Monday 15 March 2021 12:57 CET | News

Thales has partnered with Axis Bank to bring contactless payment functionalities to its Wear ‘N’ Pay wearables.

According to the press release, Thales chip form factor will leverage Tappy Technologies’ holistic payment solution to Axis Bank, to further enhance customers outreach by offering innovative purchase methods. 

Moreover, the company has managed to condense the technology of a contactless payment card into a tiny piece of secure payment technology – Thales Gemalto FlexiTag – that can be invisibly integrated into a vast range of wearable shapes and sizes. Axis Bank customers can therefore enjoy payment bands, key fobs, or loops to process fast contactless transactions, without having to take a wallet out.

Furthermore, the wearable is directly linked to the customers’ bank account and functions like a debit card. This allows purchases to be done at any merchant who accepts contactless transactions. Also, to ease accessibility, the Axis wearables can be purchased via phone banking or at Axis Bank branches.
