According to a press release issued by Santander, their customers can now make worldwide purchases using their mobile phone via the Bank’s Santander Wallet App, which uses either a QR Code or Contactless technology.
Santander aims to make payments via the app, both practical and safe. The app is available on the Bank’s website and is easy to use as you only have to confirm your card details to be able to use it.
The new shopping app is available for iOS systems which captures the QR Code and, in the case of Android smartphones, using their contactless system. The system uses NFC (Near Field Communication) technology, allowing the exchange of information between devices without the need for physical card contact.
In addition purchases and sending money to a mobile phone number is now available on Santander Wallet, with new features to be added later in the year. These new features are part of the Bank’s objective of supporting its customers in managing their day-to-day lives through simple and innovative solutions.
