Apple Pay Express Checkout

Overview

Latest eCommerce trends indicate that an increasing number of customers are opting in for a mobile paying experience when buying goods and services online. Simultaneously, when considering companies with a strong presence in the world of mobile devices, laptops and tablets there is a player we all know: Apple.

Combine the first two statements and you'll understand why using a checkout flow that links the mobile experience with an Apple operating system only leads to positive results.

Apple Pay provides an easy and secure way to make payments via iOS apps, watchOS apps, and websites on Safari. Nonprofits can accept donations within their apps and websites with Apple Pay. 

Benefits

  • Seamless payment experience. Shoppers are finalizing orders with minimum effort, with only a few clicks.
  • Cross-platform support. The checkout experience is consistent across many platforms and devices: computers, tablets, or smartphones. 
  • Enhanced security. Shoppers authorize the payment using their fingerprint or face print, while the payment information is sent by Apple Pay in a tokenized form.
