Deutsche Bank brings mobile payments to Germany: The smartphone as a wallet
Deutsche Bank press release ------- Easy, contactless mobile payments have arrived in Germany. From April 5, 2017, Deutsche Bank customers will now be able to use their smartphones to make purchases. Deutsche Bank has become the first bank to offer mobile payments in Germany via its “Deutsche Bank Mobile” app to Android device users enabled with Near Field Communication (NFC). The procedure is as follows. The customer's Deutsche Bank Mastercard is displayed automatically in the app; no need to order a new credit card or to replace the smartphone's SIM card. In just two simple steps the payment function can be activated and then used immediately. Customers who have the app loaded on their Android smartphone (version 4.4 and above) can make cashless payments worldwide at six million Mastercard acceptance points.
