As of today, customers of Arion Bank and Landsbanki can make payments with Apple Pay.
Valitor has in collaboration with Arion Bank, Landsbanki, Visa and Apple, implemented this exciting payment solution for Visa cardholders. Cardholders can now register their Visa cards in the Apple Pay Wallet.
Apple Pay is a fast and secure solution based on Visa Token Services technology. Virtual numbers replace card numbers in smart devices while card information is not stored on the device. Cardholders securely identify themselves using the devices when making a payment.
The solution can be used with any contactless terminal, it is also possible to use Apple Pay for online payments and other apps. Apple Pay is available for most Apple devices such as iPhone, iPads, Apple Watch and MacBook Pro (with Touch ID functionality).
Apple CEO Tim Cook said in March that Apple Pay will be available in more than 40 countries and regions by the end of 2019.
