What advantages come with incorporating Apple Pay and Google Pay?

Transactions made through Google or Apple Pay undergo thorough verification and authentication via fingerprint or facial recognition, providing a heightened level of security with minimal fraud risk. Consequently, our sales team can handle mobile payments more efficiently, ensuring secure transactions through our rigorous fraud verification process.

NOTE: Similar to standard Credit/Debit Card payments, we do not store any card details on our servers; Stripe is utilized to process the actual transactions.

What does Apple Pay entail?

Apple Pay, in essence, provides a user-friendly means of conducting payments through various Apple devices, including iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple Watch.

To utilize this service, users simply add their preferred payment method, like credit or debit cards, to their device.

Once Apple Pay is configured, the process is straightforward: users merely need to bring their mobile device near a compatible contactless payment terminal for swift transactions.

Additionally, when shopping online, users can conveniently opt for Apple Pay as their preferred payment method, eliminating the need for repetitive entry of card and shipping details.

What is Google Pay all about?

Google Pay is a versatile digital wallet and payment platform designed for transactions using Android devices. It allows users to make payments both in physical stores and on supported websites, mobile apps, and Google services like the Google Play Store.

To utilize Google Pay, users must link their credit or debit cards to their Google Pay account, which serves as the hub for transactions, whether in-store or online. When employed on an Android device, Google Pay relies on near field communication (NFC) technology to interact with payment terminals, ensuring a seamless and user-friendly process.

For users signed into their Google account via the Chrome browser, Google Pay is a viable option for online transactions on websites that support this service. Given the growing popularity of digital wallets, Google Pay presents a convenient solution for users to simplify their payment procedures.
