Blue Code

Dear customer,

from now on you will see another menu item called „Blue Code“ displayed in your current account.

You can easily activate here the “Blue Code” App, which allows to pay cashless with your smartphone at selected retailers – just activate and get started.

The Activation of Blue Code App can be easily done in your  “George” or “netbanking”. And it works as follows:

  1. Download the App „Blue Code“ (available for iOS and Android). Set your personal PIN-Code when you open the App for the first time.
  2. Afterwards you must select „Erste Bank und Sparkasse“. Then an Activation-Code will be displayed directly in the APP. Please notice that the activation code is only valid for 10 minutes, afterwards the App displays a new activation code
  3. Further you have to specify in your “George” or “netbanking” which account will be used for the payment with the App. Therefore in George you choose the appropriate account for which you want to activate Blue Code to start the activation – and in netbanking you choose the relevant account during the activation process. And last but not least  enter the Activation-Code which is displayed in the App to successfuly complete the Activation Procedure.
  4. After activating you can start to pay at the available retail-shops.
  • After entering your personal PIN-Code, the “Blue Code-App” will be opened and a Barcode will be displayed on the Screen
  • The cashier at the supermarket can easily scan with a handscanner
  • And that’s it – the payment is successfully done.

Currently you can pay with „Blue Code“ at Billa; Merkur, Hartlauer, Megaplex  Kinos, Mpreis and a few other retailers within Austria. The retailer network will be extended constantly.  An overview of current retailers who provide payment with „Blue Code“ is listed on or directly in the App.

The “Blue Code” App can be deactivated anytime directly in your “George” or “netbanking” or contact our sService Center under 05 0100 + BLZ.

Kind Regards

Your George / netbanking Team
