Societe Generale brings personalized credit and debit cards to Apple Pay

Societe Generale today announced that before the end of the week customers will be able to personalize the cards they use with Apple Pay, which is transforming payments with an easy, secure and private way to pay.

With Apple Pay on iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad and Mac, customers can make fast and convenient purchases in stores, in apps and on websites.

Societe Generale offers over 180 personalized physical cards, but this marks the first time customers will see the exact same card as they have in their wallet in Apple Pay.

"With Apple Pay’s personalization mirroring our cards personalization, we are demonstrating continuity between our digital and our physical products.” said Julien Claudon Head of Card and Digital Payment.

Security and privacy are 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.

With iPhone and Apple Watch, customers can pay with Apple Pay in stores, restaurants, taxis, vending machines and many more places. When shopping in apps or on the web in Safari with Apple Pay, there’s no need to manually fill out lengthy account forms or repeatedly type in shipping and billing information. Every Apple Pay purchase is authenticated with just a glance or a touch with Face ID or Touch ID, or a device's passcode.
