Apple Pay Coming to St1’s Customers

 St1 today brings its customers in Finland and Sweden Apple Pay, which is transforming mobile payments with an easy, secure and private way to pay that’s fast and convenient.

Security and privacy is at the core of Apple Pay. When a customer uses an St1 Mastercard with Apple Pay, the actual card numbers are not stored on the device, nor 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.

The new St1 Mastercard is now available to customers in Finland and Sweden and can be issued virtually to the customer in minutes, after applying and acceptance and it can be used immediately with Apple Pay. Naturally customers will receive a physical card as well. St1 Mastercard has no monthly fee if used once a month at St1 or Shell sites.

“We are so pleased to be among the first issuers in Finland and Sweden to bring Apple Pay to our customers. Being able to provide our customers the frontline payment services like Apple Pay enhances the customer experience enormously,” say Kim Wiio, CEO of St1 Nordic.

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 stores, Apple Pay works with iPhone SE, iPhone 6 and later, and Apple Watch.

Online shopping in apps and on websites accepting Apple Pay is as simple as the touch of a finger with Touch ID, so there’s no need to manually fill out lengthy account forms or repeatedly type in shipping and billing information. When paying for goods and services on the go in apps or Safari, Apple Pay works with iPhone 6 and later, iPhone SE, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, and iPad mini 3 and later. You can also use Apple Pay in Safari on any Mac introduced in or after 2012 running macOS Sierra and confirm the payment with iPhone 6 or later or Apple Watch, or with Touch ID on the new MacBook Pro.
