Deutsche BankCredit and debit card holders of Deutsche Bank will now be able to make contactless and cardless payments just using their mobile phones based on Android operating system. In order to use the new service customers need to link their Mastercard credit or debit card to their NFC-powered Android devices and complete the transaction by unlocking their smartphones and waving over the POS terminal.

The transaction limit without authentication will be €25, while larger amounts will have to be authorized by entering the PIN code.
