Apple Pay is a revolutionary new service which may change the way in which we make our purchases. It gives the customer the ability to complete purchases by using a compatible Apple device.
Apple Pay is currently available on:
- iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus
- iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus
- iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus
- iPad Pro
- iPad Air 2
- iPad mini 4 and iPad mini 3
- Apple Watch and Apple Watch Series 2
How does it work?
A debit or credit card can be added and stored within the Wallet app on an Apple device. Once setup, no card details are visible on the screen. Customers can feel secure in the knowledge that should they misplace their device, no card details can be captured by another individual.
Finalising a purchase has never been so straightforward. Hover an Apple device over a contactless card machine at the checkout and hold the Touch ID fingerprint recognition button. That will complete the transaction.
Worried about security?
There is no need to worry – Apple Pay is secure and private. A transaction can only be finalised by using a fingerprint or personal pass code. No sale information is saved by Apple.
Is there a limit and where can it be used?
Most of the major banks within the UK accept Apple Pay payments. The contactless limit limit was recently increased to £30 per transaction. Some retailers are able to accept high value payments (HVP) via Apple Pay. This allows customers to use Apple Pay even if the transaction is above £30.
Why should you accept it?
Fewer customers carry cash than ever before. This is the perfect time to offer your customers this new payment method (which is sure to take the world by storm). It is only a matter of time before Apple Pay will become a new standard for how customers will look to finalise their purchases.
We are proud to offer state-of-the-art contactless card terminals, all compatible with Apple Pay technology. Save yourself from falling behind and potentially losing a sale by taking the first step to accepting Apple Pay and contactless payments.
