Wirecard brings mobile payment app boon to Apple Pay in Ireland
After the initial launch to the UK, France and Switzerland, Ireland is the fourth market where people can use boon with Apple Pay.
Georg von Waldenfels, EVP consumer solutions with Wirecard, says “even more users in Europe can experience a new level of mobile payments without being a customer of a specific bank”.
Boon is based on an automatic app-to-wallet integration via a prepaid account with a digital Mastercard, issued by Wirecard Card Solutions. This allows users to top up their account via wire transfer, debit or credit card. Boon works at any NFC-enabled terminal everywhere the Mastercard Contactless logo appears.
Apple Pay works with iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and later, iPhone SE and Apple Watch.
