    • American Express to bring Apple Pay to Singapore and Hong Kong

      American Express is planning to bring the Apple Pay services to members in Singapore and Honk Kong in the year 2016. Through this service, AMEX (American Express) cardmembers will be able to pay using their Apple watch or iPhone in stores that accept contactless payments through AMEX cards and also within participating merchant apps.

      AMEX cardmembers using the Apply Pay service will get details for their purchases and real time notifications. Additionally, they will also have seamless access to the AMEX Mobile App for enhanced account servicing, monitoring and also to available offers and rewards.

      AMEX is also promising the same level of customer service and protection that cardmembers usually expect from a credit card company. According to the AMEX Company, once the AMEX card number is added to the Apple Pay service, the actual card numbers will not be stored on the device. Instead of this, a unique Device Account Number will be assigned and encrypted, which will then be stored in the Secure Element on the cardmember’s device. Each transaction made will be authorized with a onetime dynamic security code.

      The expectation is that the Apple Pay service will become available in Singapore, China and Hong Kong in 2016 as the mobile payment market is further expected to grow this year.
