1. What is ApplePay?

ApplePay is a mobile payment service created by Apple Inc. that allows users to make payments using their iPhone or iPad. The service was first announced in 2014 and launched in the United States in October 2014. Apple Pay can today be used at any retail locations as well as online.

2. How does ApplePay work?

When you add a credit or debit card to Apple Pay, your card number is not stored on your device, nor is it shared with merchants

2. How ApplePay works?

ApplePay uses Near Field Communication (NFC) technology to allow users to make payments by touching their iPhone or iPad to a compatible payment terminal. The NFC chip in the device communicates with the NFC chip in the payment terminal, allowing the user to complete the payment by inputting their PIN or using their fingerprint.

3. Why is it better than other payment methods ?

There are several reasons why ApplePay is a better payment method than other methods such as credit cards or cash.

First, ApplePay is more secure than other methods because it uses NFC technology, which makes it difficult for criminals to copy or steal your information. Second, ApplePay is more convenient than other methods because you can use it to pay for things with just your iPhone or iPad. Finally, ApplePay is more private than other methods because it does not require you to input your credit card number or personal information when making a payment.

4. Who can I use it with IPP?

ApplePay can be used by anyone who has an iPhone or iPad that is running iOS 8.0 or higher. Our Javascript Gateway applet works with ApplePay out-of-the-box.

5. Where can you use it

ApplePay can be used at any store that accepts contactless payments. In the US, ApplePay can be used at over a million stores, including major retailers such as Macy’s, Walgreens, and McDonald’s.
