What is Apple Pay?
Apple Pay is Apple’s own payment method, available in more than 35 countries for all Apple users. It uses the Wallet app, in which a consumer places their payment cards. The actual payment method therefore depends on the cards that are placed in the Wallet app. Currently, only credit cards are supported. The Wallet app stores all details and preferences of the various payment cards it holds. The payment is completed with a fingerprint or face scan. With this, Apple Pay complies with the Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) regulations required under the Payment Services Directive 2 (PSD2).
How does Apple Pay work?
Our system automatically detects whether your customer is paying from an Apple device. Only then will Apple Pay be shown as a payment method. After selecting Apple Pay as a payment method, the payment is completed with the Touch ID or Face ID, creating a seamless experience for your customers.
For the merchant, there are no additional costs for using Apple Pay. You only pay the regular costs for credit card.
