Fintech Aumax enhances premium services with Metal Cards from G+D

29/06/2021 Munich Giesecke+Devrient

For its premium service package, the French fintech company Aumax is teaming up with Giesecke+Devrient (G+D). G+D’s metal card is an exclusive option for the most selective Aumax pour moi customers.

As of late, Aumax pour moi, a subsidiary of the French Credit Mutuel Arkea, is offering its customers a premium package of services. Aumax customers who book these services will also have access to a special payment card – the Aumax Metal Card.

This complete service package is designed to offer high convenience to premium customers: fee-free withdrawals worldwide, refund guarantees, higher cashbacks, advantageous insurance benefits, concierge service and prioritised chat access. “It was an obvious choice for us to offer a metal card to our customers. Not only for aesthetic reasons, but also and above all to offer a unique customer experience,“ explains Hugues Mercier, Managing Director of Aumax pour moi. While some markets favor exclusivity and reserve the metal cards to their most affluent customers, Aumax pour moi intends to broaden and modernize the use of metal payment cards. Aumax pour moi’s target audience is composed of customers of all ages who appreciate more than just the status symbol conveyed by the metal; they also value and identify to its resilience and style. Because customers interact digitally with Aumax, the payment card becomes one of the few physical bonds the fintech has to offer. Aumax decided on the heaviest of the metal cards, which includes a dual-interface for easy contactless payments and special attention to the card’s design“.

When choosing the right partner to craft its Metal Card, Aumax pour moi picked G+D not only for their expertise in payment cards, but also for their deep understanding of Fintechs’ particular needs and the special expectations of their clients. „More and more, banks, fintechs and credit card companies are taking the opportunity to provide unique experiences through the use of metal cards for their customers,“ explains Dr Carsten Wengel, Head of Sales & Distribution for Smart Card and Digital Payments at G+D.
