Users of the Android mobile payment app boon are now able to use their virtual prepaid credit card, which can be topped up and which forms the basis of the app, for mobile online purchases. The app issued by Wirecard offers a transparent overview of the entire transaction process. Wirecard, a supplier of internet technology, is therefore expanding its mobile payment solution by this extra additional function for all users in Spain, Ireland and Germany. Value added offers and financial services such as microcredit, peer-to-peer (P2P) payments and much more will follow in due course.
In future, boon users will conveniently be able to launch and close the “online payment” function in the app. After the function is launched, the credit card is immediately ready for use. The credit card number is copied into the app and can be added via the user’s smartphone to the respective online shop in which a payment needs to be made. If the credit card is deactivated, no online payments are possible. Using the digital MasterCard incurs no additional fees for the user.
Georg von Waldenfels, Executive Vice President Consumer Solutions at Wirecard: “Our intention is to continually expand boon by integrating innovative features. The possibility of now making online purchases via the boon app offers users a unique multichannel payment experience – this is advanced modern technology offering decisive value added.”
The desired credit can simply be loaded onto the digital prepaid MasterCard by credit card or bank transfer. Wirecard’s mobile payment solution can be used by anyone who owns an NFC-enabled Android smartphone with OS 4.4 or above. boon is currently available in seven countries.
