Making payments with your smartphone also allows for greater fluidity because you are not bound to have the amount necessary for a cash purchase with you, so let’s see what are the best, safest and fastest methods to pay with your smartphone.

Payment by smartphone

Google Pay we can use it to pay as if it were a normal credit card or an ATM, simply by bringing it closer to the POS , just like with contactless credit cards. Using this application is really very simple.

Payment by smartphone: Satispay

Then you need to establish the weekly budget you want to have available on the App: every week, automatically, the money needed to reach the set amount will be credited from your current account.

Even making payments is really very simple, it will be enough to frame the QR Code of the shop or business in which you want to use Satispay with your smartphone (if it is not displayed, ask the shopkeeper to show it to you), click on ” Pay ” and enter the amount of money you have to pay. At this point the contact will confirm the payment and that’s it. Important thing: Satispay is free, you will not have any nasty surprises and additional expenses when you use it.
