What do I need to pay with my mobile phone?

A mobile phone with Android Lollipop 5.0 and higher with NFC support, an activated Edenred card, the Google Pay app, and Internet connection to insert the card into your phone. Internet connection is not necessary for the payment itself.

Are mobile payments safe?

It may surprise you, but it's safer than contactless payments with a credit card. The number of your actual plastic card is not listed anywhere. If you lose your phone or it is stolen, you can simply block it remotely or delete the data. This does not affect the function of your plastic Edenred card, which remains functional so you do not have to request a new card.

Where can I pay with my mobile?

Everywhere where you can pay with the Edenred card - in the TicketCard by Edenred mobile application, you'll find a simple search engine of places for your card.

What if I lose my mobile phone?

In upleasant cases like this, you need to block mobile payments as quickly as possible - you can do this with FIND MY DEVICE, which lets you remotely erase data or block your phone. If you remove your mobile card from your phone for this reason or any other reason, your plastic card will remain functional. If you block your plastic card, your mobile card will also be blocked.

How do I pay with my phone?

Do you know how to tap your phone on a payment terminal? Then you know how to pay with a Google Pay mobile card. The device must be active (no black screen); from time to time, your phone will ask you to unlock the screen. And the best part - you don't pay any extra! Google Pay is completely free of charge.

And what about a PIN code?

You don't need one - for payments over 500 CZK, you confirm the payment by unlocking of your phone.

I have mobile payment with my bank - what should I do?

If your bank uses Google Pay you'll know it, because when you download Google Pay to your device you'll see your credit card. Google Pay always uses the card that is first (on top) for payments. To change the order, simply drag the card to the desired position. If the bank uses a different technology, you need to choose the application in your phone settings to specify which one will be used for the payment.

What makes the Edenred Card more advantageous than the original Ticket Restaurant and Edenred Benefits cards?

  • Edenred Card is the most modern type of employee benefits, which allows you to use up to 2 wallets within one card - meal voucher and / or leisure wallet.
  • If you are currently using only one of these benefits (meal vouchers or leisure benefits), with the Edenred Card you can reward employees with a new benefit at any time without additional costs for additional cards. All you have to do is recharge your second wallet.
  • If you are already contributing to employees for meals and leisure activities, thanks to the combination of benefits into one card, you will save the costs of issuing new and issuing expired cards. Instead of 2 Ticket Restaurant and Edenred Benefits fees, you only pay 1 of the Edenred Card. In addition, employees will appreciate the simplicity and greater comfort of payment.

When paying, is it necessary to decide from which wallet the funds are to be deducted?

No, paying the Edenred Card is extremely comfortable. You don't have to tell anyone or pick up at the payment terminal. When paying, the Edenred Card knows what the employee is paying for and deducts money from the correct wallet.
