Seqr: Tap & Pay also in Germany for Android smartphones with NFC




article_seqr In 2016, the subject of mobile payment is virtually non-existent. Neither Android Pay, nor Apple Pay are supported here. The NFC cards, which can now also be used with discounters, show that it would be technically possible. This gap could now fill an app called Seqr, because it can also use its smartphone for contactless payment at terminals. The app is linked to the bank account for this, then is paid by bank account. It can also be used if no Internet connection exists, up to five payments can be carried out.

I installed the app yesterday, you link it with the handynummer and an e-mail address. The bank account is linked by entering the bank data and you have to upload a picture of your card. In Germany, only this method is available; in addition, no loyalty accounts can be used.


If you want to pay with the app, tap & pay in the settings of the app. Then you can tap and tap Tap & Pay and simply keep to the payment terminal, the transaction is then confirmed on both the smartphone and the terminal – logical. Practically, the receipts are also collected in the app.

If the terminal is asking for a PIN, you can also display these via the display and then enter it. Sounds really useful, but the app requires more steps to complete a payment than it would be with an NFC card. In practice, I could not try the app, I also have no interest in it since I am interested in faster payment methods.

If you do not have an NFC card from the bank or just want to use the smartphone as a means of payment, the solution can look at once. All details to it on the website of Seqr . You can use the app in all countries where the app is available (except USA and Romania). If you have already had experiences with the app, this gladly shares in the comments, it is a topic that is at least as interested as it is equally controversial.

The solution does not convince me that I would actually link my account to the app just to try it out. In the long run I would not use them anyway. Available for Android, the download is logically free.
