PFS Launches Fitbit Pay in the UK

May 9, 2019

LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 9, 2019--PFS’ First Fitbit Pay Solution for Cards Issued & Managed by the FinTech in the United Kingdom is Live

Customers of PFS in the UK can add their Mastercard prepaid card to their device, enabling them to make payments on the go directly from their wrist. Fitbit Pay brings convenience and freedom to users to leave their smartphone and wallet at home, and easily make purchases at thousands of stores where contactless payments are already accepted.

Valerie Moran, Head of Operations & Client Relations at PFS stated: “Our collaboration with Fitbit allows PFS cardholders in the UK to become part of a growing payment innovation they can experience directly on their wrist. The trend towards cashless is growing and we are delighted to be at the heart of the evolution of payments.”

Fitbit Pay transactions use an industry standard tokenization platform, ensuring user card information is never revealed or shared with merchants or Fitbit. Plus, a protected PIN is chosen by the user during device set-up for an added layer of protection.
