StarHub Brings Apple Pay to Customers
Singapore, 19 April 2016 – StarHub today brings customers Apple Pay, which transforms mobile payments with an easy, secure and private way to pay that is fast and convenient.
Security and privacy is at the core of Apple Pay. When you use a credit or debit card with Apple Pay, the actual card numbers are not stored on the device, nor on Apple servers. Instead, a unique Device Account Number is assigned, encrypted and securely stored in the Secure Element on the device. Each transaction is authorised with a one-time unique dynamic security code.
“Digital commerce is fast catching on with Singapore consumers, and we want to be at the forefront of enriching our customers’ lifestyles using technology. Being among the first Apple Pay-enabled merchants in Singapore, we are pleased that customers can now conveniently tap to pay at StarHub Shops using their iPhone and Apple Watch,” said Ms Yeong Mun-Ling, StarHub Head of Business Strategy.
Apple Pay is easy to set up and users will continue to receive all of the rewards and beneﬁts offered by credit and debit cards. In stores, Apple Pay works with iPhone SE, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch.
Online shopping in apps accepting Apple Pay is as simple as the touch of a finger with Touch ID, so there’s no need to manually fill out lengthy account forms or repeatedly type in shipping and billing information. When paying for goods and services within apps, Apple Pay is compatible with iPhone SE, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 4 and iPad Pro.
