How do I issue the immaterial digital debit card for the North Evia-Samos Pass?
Through the special application and once the application has been submitted and approved, you are entitled to the issuance of an immaterial digital debit card, to which the corresponding amount is credited. After the immaterial digital debit card is issued, the Payment Service Provider informs you of the procedure you must follow, to activate the card and credit the amount of money, by sending:
a) text message (sms) to the mobile phone number you have registered in the special application, with integrated instructions for activating the immaterial digital debit card and
b) e-mail message (e-mail) to the e-mail address you have registered in the special application, with an embedded link to activate the immaterial digital debit card.
After entering the above link, you create a personal access code (password) and receive a confirmation code, with a new text message (sms), in order to activate the immaterial digital debit card.
Where can I use the card?
The North Evia-Samos Pass can be used for purchases in businesses in the regions of North Evia and Samos (depending on the destination chosen by the beneficiary) and covers the costs of local transport, accommodation and dining in the eligible areas. Its use may refer to one or more payments, for part or all of the amount for the product or service you wish to obtain.
