Security and privacy is at the core of Apple Pay. When you use a credit or debit card with Apple Pay, the actual card numbers are not stored on the device or 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.
Ms. Kamill Fung, Deputy General Manager of BOC Credit Card (International) Limited, said “BOC Visa and MasterCard cardholders are now able to conveniently make daily transactions and at the same time enjoy a host of rewarding offers when they pay with Apple Pay. For their first five Apple Pay transactions they are entitled to 10X Reward Gift Points. In addition, they are rewarded with extra cash vouchers when they shop at any outlets of PARKnSHOP or Watsons in Hong Kong with Apply Pay”.
Apple Pay is easy to set up and users will continue to receive all of the rewards and benefits offered by credit and debit cards. In participating stores, Apple Pay works with iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone SE and Apple Watch.
Online shopping in apps accepting Apple Pay is simple, without needing to repeatedly fill out lengthy account forms or type in shipping and billing information.
