Apple Pay arrives for Starling Bank customers, offering an easy, secure & private way to pay
London, July 2017
Starling Bank, the leading mobile-only bank that recently launched its new current account in the UK market, today brings its customers Apple Pay, which is transforming mobile payments with an easy, secure and private way to pay that’s fast and convenient.
Starling Bank will be the first bank in the UK to offer the ability to setup Apple Pay right within the Starling app. This means that new Starling customers will be able to add their card into their digital wallet with a single tap even before the physical MasterCard Debit Card arrives in the post.
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 your device. Each transaction is authorized with a one-time unique dynamic security code.
