Apple Pay becomes available to cardholders of the Mir payment system in Russia

20 iulie 2021

From now on, Mir cardholders have the opportunity to use Apple Pay – a safe, secure and confidential payment tool that allows them not to touch the buttons of the payment terminal and not to transfer money from hand to hand, according to a press release. Every Apple Pay transaction is secured by innovative iPhone technologies.

“ Connecting to Apple Pay will provide MIR cardholders with another convenient, fast and secure contactless payment method. Users will also have access to all the benefits of paying with Mir – discounts when paying for metro fares, cashback for paying for purchases from partners of the Mir payment system and other relevant offers *. Sberbank, VTB, Rosselkhozbank, PSB, Post Bank, Center-invest Bank, Tinkoff Bank and Primsotsbank were the first banks to provide their clients with the Mir cards with Apple Pay, „said Vladimir Komlev, CEO of the Mir payment system.

To make a payment, you must first set up a Mir card payment in Apple Pay – it’s very easy. All you have to do is go to the Wallet app on your iPhone, click the plus sign, and follow the instructions to add a Mir credit or debit card. Apple Pay is ready to use as soon as you’ve linked your card to your iPhone or Apple Watch.

To pay for purchases, just bring your iPhone or Apple Watch to the payment terminal. Every transaction through Apple Pay is reliably protected – the user needs to be authenticated using Face ID, Touch ID or a password, in addition to this, a unique one-time dynamic security code is used. With Apple Pay, you can pay for purchases at grocery stores, pharmacies, taxis, restaurants, coffee shops, and more.


Joint Stock Company National Payment Card System (NSPK) is the operator of the Mir payment system, established on July 23, 2014. 100% of the shares of NSPK JSC are owned by the Central Bank of the Russian Federation.
