Walking around with a bulky wallet is thing of the past; making payments using apps and cards is now the new normal since customers are looking for an easier way to complete their transactions. This is particularly so with online shopping and Apple has now upped the ante on how your customers can make payments in your physical and online stores using Apple Pay.
As simple as activating Apple Pay in your Shopify Store and leaving the rest to Shopify, gives visitors to your online store a hassle free experience of paying for their items by touching their phones. There is no need to for customers to go through the process of putting in their credit card information every time they buy. Here’s how it works:
- Customers can add the credit or debit card they wish to use for their purchases to Apple Wallet by entering the security code. They can add as many cards as they wish on their Apple devices using the Wallet App.
- After adding the card, a unique Device Account Number is assigned to the customer, encrypted and securely stored in the Secure Element, a dedicated chip in Apple devices.
- Purchases are made by touch ID to scan your fingerprint, simply touch your phone to complete the transaction. When a purchase is made the Device Account Number along with a transaction specific dynamic security code is use to process the payment.
Shopping with Apple Pay provides for safe, secure and simple shopping. Customers’ cards are never stored to their phones or their payment details shared with merchants.
Shopify-powered online stores will be among the first to accept Apple Pay. With Apple Pay, your customers will be able to quickly and securely check out from your online store with their iPhone, iPad, and Mac by simply tapping the Apple Pay button and scanning their fingerprint.
