Enrollment of Mastercard issued by OTP Bank Romania in the two applications is easily and intuitively confirmed with a simple SMS. In addition, the OTPay application allows the enrollment of a card by simply touching it from the mobile terminal, through the NFC technology, the card data being automatically downloaded in the mobile application.
