Apple Pay Coming to 28 Degrees Platinum Mastercard and GO MasterCard's Customers

Offering an Easy, Secure & Private Way to Pay

MELBOURNE, Victoria - 15 August, 2017: Latitude Financial Services, credit provider of 28 Degrees Platinum Mastercard and GO MasterCard, today brings its customers Apple Pay, which is transforming mobile payments with an easy, secure and private way to pay that’s fast and convenient.

Apple Pay will now be available for all Latitude Financial Services Mastercard products, including the award winning 28 Degrees Platinum Mastercard, Australia’s leading travel credit card. With no international transaction fees on purchases or currency conversion fees, 28 Degrees Platinum Mastercard customers can continue to travel with ease in just a touch.

Security and privacy is at the core of Apple Pay. When you 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 on your device. Each transaction is authorised with a one-time unique dynamic security code.

Apple Pay is easy to set up and users will continue to receive all of the rewards and benefits offered by credit and debit cards. In stores, Apple Pay works with iPhone SE, iPhone 6 and later, and Apple Watch. 

Online shopping in apps and on websites accepting Apple Pay is as simple as the touch of a finger with Touch ID, so there’s no need to manually fill out lengthy account forms or repeatedly type in shipping and billing information. When paying for goods and services on the go in apps or Safari, Apple Pay works with iPhone 6 and later, iPhone SE, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, and iPad mini 3 and later. You can also use Apple Pay in Safari on any Mac introduced in or after 2012 running macOS Sierra and confirm the payment with iPhone 6 or later or Apple Watch, or with Touch ID on the new MacBook Pro.
