Boubyan Bank announced today that Apple Pay is available to its customers in Kuwait. Apple Pay is a safer, more secure, and private way to pay that allows users to use their Apple devices to make payments in-store, online and in-app.

Boubyan Bank’s CEO - Consumer & Digital Banking, Mr. Abdulla Al-Tuwaijri, stated: “Today we announce we are bringing Apple Pay to all our customers, which is an important step to enhance the use of Boubyan’s digital services. This adds to Boubyan Bank’s track record of offering innovative digital payment solutions and providing customers with state-of-the-art payment technology for a seamless, secure, and convenient banking experience.”

Apple Pay will allow customers to make payments easily. Customers can simply hold their iPhone or Apple Watch near a payment terminal to make a contactless payment. Every Apple Pay purchase is authenticated with Face ID, Touch ID, or a device passcode, as well as a one-time unique dynamic security code. Apple Pay is accepted in stores, restaurants, cafes, hotels, and many other places around the world. 

Security and privacy are at the core of Apple Pay. When customers 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, an industry-standard, certified chip designed to store the payment information safely on the device

Apple Pay is easy to set up. On iPhone, simply open the Wallet app, tap +, and follow the steps to add Boubyan’s credit or debit cards. Once a customer adds a card to iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, and Mac, they can start using Apple Pay on that device right away. Customers will continue to receive all the rewards and benefits offered by Boubyan’s cards.
