M1, together with DBS Bank, today announced the launch of DBS One.Tap - Singapore’s first virtual credit card on a Near Field Communications-enabled (NFC) mobile phone.
Customers who have the M1 NFC service and DBS/POSB credit card will be able to activate DBS One.Tap, and enjoy the simplicity and convenience of making secured purchases and payments on the go.
With DBS One.Tap, M1 customers will enjoy the freedom and benefits in making mobile payments, with just a tap of their NFC-enabled phones at over 30,000 MasterCard Paypass acceptance points islandwide.
The DBS One.Tap is the latest addition to M1’s growing suite of NFC services that were first launched in August 2012. Before the launch of DBS One.Tap, there were only two NFC services: M1 NFC Prepaid MasterCard and EZ-link CEPAS.
To activate the service, existing M1 NFC and DBS/POSB credit card customers may apply for DBS One.Tap through DBS/POSB iBanking or mBanking, and once approved, download the virtual card via the M1 Mobile Wallet App.
