Revolut Junior brings Apple Pay to customers

Revolut with more than 16 million customers worldwide, has announced it will bring Apple Pay to Revolut Junior customers across Europe and the UK

The introduction of Apple Pay is Revolut's response to the feedback received over the last few months from their customers, and specifically parents and their teenage children. Contactless payments especially cater to teenagers, who will now be able to make quick and hassle free payments from their Junior account using their iPhone or Apple Watch.

Apple Pay is a safe and secure way for teens to pay without having to use their payment card, touching physical buttons or exchanging cash. 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.

To use Apple Pay, customers simply hold their iPhone or Apple Watch near a payment terminal to make a contactless payment. Every purchase is secure because it is authenticated with Face ID, Touch ID, or device passcode. Apple Pay is widely accepted in grocery stores, pharmacies, taxis, restaurants, coffee shops, retail stores, and many more places. Customers can also make faster and more convenient purchases in apps or on the web without having to create accounts or repeatedly type in shipping and billing information.

The integration of Apple Pay will allow Revolut Junior customers to use Apple Pay in place of their physical card anywhere contactless payments are accepted - with the exception of stores classed as adult retailers, such as off-licences and betting shops.
