- A more secure and private way to pay with iPhone and Apple Watch and Cards
- American Express Cardholders who use Apple Pay for the first time will receive a refund of up to $ 500 pesos for their purchases.
Mexico City, February 23, 2020.- American Express México, whose vision is to provide the best experience to its customers, every day, around the world, today offers its Cardholders enrolled in Apple Pay a secure and private way to make payments without having to touch a terminal or cash.
American Express Customers simply have to hold their iPhone or Apple Watch near a payment terminal to make a contactless payment. Every purchase made through Apple Pay is secure because it is authenticated with Face ID, Touch ID or the device access code, as well as a unique dynamic security code. This will allow Company Cardholders to use Apple Pay in supermarkets, restaurants, stores and many more places that accept American Express Cards. All Company Cards can be used in Apple Pay.
“At American Express, we provide our customers with exceptional products, services and experiences every day. Therefore, we are very excited to offer Apple Pay to our Cardholders in Mexico, since contactless payments are becoming part of our lifestyle ”, said Santiago Fernández Vidal, President and CEO of American Express Mexico. “It is also another benchmark of our digital capabilities, focus on innovation and, of course, one more example of our support for Clients.”
American Express Cardholders will be able to use Apple Pay on iPhone, iPad, and Mac to make faster and more convenient purchases through apps, or via the Internet in Safari, without having to create accounts or repeatedly enter shipping and billing information. Apple Pay makes it easy to pay for food and grocery deliveries, online shopping, and private transportation services, among others. It can also be used to make app payments on Apple Watch.
In addition, as of February 23 and until May 20, 2021, American Express Cardholders who use Apple Pay for the first time and who previously activate the promotion, will be able to receive a refund of $ 100 MXN for every $ 100 MXN spent on different stores (up to a maximum of $ 500 MXN), which will be reflected in your account statement *.
One touch security and convenience
Security and privacy are at the center of Apple Pay. When American Express Customers use Apple Pay, their actual Card numbers are not stored on the device or on Apple’s servers. Instead, a unique Device Account Number is assigned and encrypted and stored in the Secure Element, an industry-standard certified chip designed to store payment information securely on the device.
In addition to these, security is provided through biometric authentication (Face ID and Touch ID on Apple devices), as well as through direct approval from American Express, which also protects its Cardholders with its fraud protection guarantee.
Apple Pay is easy to set up too. On iPhone, the Customer simply needs to open the Wallet application, touch + and follow the steps to add American Express Cards. Once a Card is added to iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, and Mac, Apple Pay can be started on that device right away. Cardholders will continue to receive all the rewards and benefits that American Express Cards offer.
