Carrefour Italia has collaborated with Italian payments firm SIA and local lender Intesa Sanpaolo to enable its customer make payments for their purchases through the Jiffy app.

With Jiffy, customers at Carrefour Italia’s iper, market and express stores can make payments directly from their current account.

Carrefour Italia director of financial services Tiziano Depaoli said: “Thanks to the innovative solution Jiffy and to exceptional partners like SIA and Gruppo Intesa Sanpaolo, Carrefour Italia further enriches the range of services it offers to its customers, improving the shopping experience at its stores and strengthening even more the relationship of trust with the brand.”

Using Jiffy through the XME Pay digital wallet, consumers can make transactions at self-service or manned cash desks. The transactions will be authenticated via fingerprint or facial recognition technology.

In order to complete a payment, customers need to download the Intesa Sanpaolo mobile app and tap at the QR code generated at the cash desk using their smartphone.

Intesa Sanpaolo head of global transaction banking Stefano Favale said: “With the introduction of this solution, Intesa Sanpaolo customers can pay at Carrefour with XME Pay, the wallet available in the Intesa Sanpaolo Mobile app that today counts 50 million logins every month, by 3 million customers.”
