Gemalto’s Trusted Service Hub (TSH) ensures a swift and secure transition to the mobile payment service for El Corte Inglés card holders. The move makes Financiera El Corte Inglés the first private label card provider in Spain to adopt Samsung Pay.
The payment solution is based on PURE, a white label payment application which brings EMV technology to private label cards, reinforcing the Spanish retailer complete autonomy with its payment eco-system.
More than 11 million consumers currently hold an El Corte Inglés payment card. For these shoppers, creating a digital card on Samsung Pay will involve nothing more than an online enrolment powered by the Gemalto TSH platform. Gemalto’s TSH provides the entire digitalization and tokenization process. Customers benefit from the convenience brought by the digital card to pay for goods and services and can authenticate transactions instantly and securely using biometrics.
