To use the wallet, you have to download the marketing network app and enter credit information in it. • The Shufersal chain is also currently working on developing their own wallet.
Rami Levy at the launch of the digital wallet
Businessman Rami Levy has long been more than just the Jerusalem retailer who maintains several crowded grocery store branches. Still, yesterday he returned to his addiction to launch a digital wallet for his clients.
Using the digital wallet, it will be possible to pay at the box office without the need for a credit card or cash.
Recently, a pilot was conducted for this wallet, which ended successfully. The chain itself is the first to release a digital wallet to the market, and it is to be expected that other competing chains - including Shufersal - will do so soon.
The wallet is based on the fintech infrastructure of Switch, which is also controlled by Levy. It will be used by customers for payment both in supermarkets, online channels and in the app, and in the future also in all the group's subsidiaries. That is, Kopix and Good Pharm.
Its use is not conditional on holding a Levy credit card, but it does require downloading the food chain's app to your mobile and entering personal and credit information into it. This, both on iPhones and Android devices.
When you arrive at the checkout with the shopping, give the cashiers your mobile number and receive a "push", a pop-up message with a request to enter a secret code or biometric confirmation means, before payment. You create the code for yourself and need to remember it orally, in order to verify the payment at the checkout. Click on "Payment Confirmation" - and the transaction is completed.
The wallet also offers detailed tracking of the payments made in it and displays all of this on the wallet payment history screen.
Rami Levy told Israel Today that he estimates that "millions will download the digital wallet app. In the end, all the networks will be there. We will cooperate with them, even though competition is a good thing."
