Nexi makes Fitbit Pay available to customers of over 4.5 million Nexi cards are already enabled for Fitbit’s contactless payment system, which allows purchases to be made in-store via smartwatches and trackers compatible with the service.
Fitbit Pay, in fact, allows you to pay the expense in all stores equipped with a contactless POS, more than 75% of the shops in Italy, in a very simple way: just press the left button of your Fitbit wearable enabled and enter the PIN set when registering the card for the service. Once this is done, just bring the Fitbit wearable close to the POS to make the payment. Once the purchase is made, the customer receives a notification on his smartphone associated with the Fitbit device.
Activating the service is also very easy : access the Fitbit Pay app, select the Fitbit Wallet option, set the PIN and match the Nexi card (credit, international or prepaid debit) issued by one of the participating banks . From that moment it is possible to make purchases using one of the compatible Fitbit smartwatch models: Ionic, Versa, Charge 3 Special Edition.
The maximum security of the transaction is guaranteed by the fact that the physical card data on the device is not stored and, during payment, the code identifying the virtualized card and not the real one is used. To ensure even more security, whenever you take your watch off your wrist or 24 hours after the previous entry, you will be asked to re-enter your PIN.
“The customers of our partner banks have today another convenient, fast and secure payment service made available by Nexi – says Andrea Mencarini , Cards & Digital Payments Director of Nexi – The agreement with Fitbit is consistent with our mission of PayTech of the banks that guarantees credit institutions innovative payment solutions “.
