INTRODUCING BANCOMAT PAY: NEW DIGITAL PAYMENT SERVICES FOR 37 MILLION ITALIANS
BANCOMAT S.p.A. presents its new digital payment service with the BANCOMAT Pay brand. Thanks to an agreement with SIA, BANCOMAT Pay will integrate the Jiffy service, allowing PagoBANCOMAT® cardholders to pay, in stores and online, and to send and receive money in real time from their smartphone in total security simply by using their mobile phone number
This partnership will permit new payment services to be made available to PagoBANCOMAT® cardholders, based on technology solutions already created by SIA, in particular to transfer money between private citizens (P2P), to purchase goods and services both online and at the stores of PagoBANCOMAT®- subscribing merchants (P2B), and to make payments to central and local public administration bodies (P2G) through the PagoPA platform.
BANCOMAT Pay will be available for use by all PagoBANCOMAT® cardholders through the banks subscribing to the service, via their bank’s app or otherwise via the BANCOMAT Pay app. In just a few seconds and from the user’s smartphone, it will be possible for them to make money transfers and payments without the need to have the physical card with them or to enter the relative PIN.
“During our thirty years in business, we have consolidated our most precious asset – the trust of the market and the customer. From today we want to combine this value with all the potential of technological innovation, making money transactions even more simple and immediate. With BANCOMAT Pay, we intend to take our first step to entering the world of payment services of the future where it is not just cash that is dematerialized but the card itself. Together with banks we want to be the facilitators and champions of change and innovation for the country”, said Alessandro Zollo, CEO of BANCOMAT S.p.A.
“The strategic agreement with Bancomat and the significant digital transformation of the payment instrument most widely used by Italians represents the completion of a path in the design and implementation of innovative services started up by SIA many years ago alongside the Italian banking system. We have invested heavily in Jiffy, together with the 130-plus banks that already use it, and from today we are making its innovative features available to Bancomat to facilitate digitalization and make the Italian country system even more efficient“, commented Nicola Cordone, Deputy CEO of SIA.
