Wirecard has collaborated with Fitbit to offer contactless payments using Fitbit Pay across Europe.
In the next couple of weeks, all Fitbit Pay customers in Europe will be able to benefit from boon mobile payments, developed by Wirecard.
The boon mobile payment solution is a seamless and secure fully digital payment method to make mobile payments at the point of sale. This allows customers to leave their physical wallets at home and be mobile phone free.
From today, users from Italy, Ireland, Spain, Switzerland and the UK will be able to add their digital boon cards to Fitbit Pay and make secure purchases with their Fitbit Ionic or Fitbit Versa smartwatch devices anywhere that Mastercard Contactless is accepted.
Georg von Waldenfels, executive vice president of consumer solutions at Wirecard, commented:
“We are proud to announce our partnership with Fitbit, offering our customers increased flexibility and freedom of choice when selecting their favourite devices to use their digital boon cards. boon customers can now even lock away their phones and worry less about their belongings during sporting activities without compromising their daily activities.”
Fitbit Pay can easily be set-up on Fitbit Ionic and Fitbit Versa by following the simple steps in the Fitbit mobile app to add a credit or debit card to the user’s Fitbit Wallet.
