Contactless Mobile Payments

Accepting Apple Pay can be more secure than accepting traditional credit and debit cards. Every transaction on your customer’s iPhone or iPad requires Touch ID—our fingerprint identity sensor—authentication or passcode. In addition, you don’t receive your customer’s actual credit or debit card numbers, so you aren’t handling actual credit or debit card numbers in your systems when they pay with Apple Pay. It works with Visa, MasterCard, and American Express cards and existing payment providers. To accept Apple Pay in your store, you need to have a contactless payment-capable point of sale terminal because iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus communicate directly with the payment terminal.

Android Pay helps merchants create a more engaging shopping experience, in-store or online. By allowing users to save targeted offers to Android Pay, merchants can drive more traffic to their stores. By making gift cards available on Android Pay, merchants can drive more sales by making sure customers don’t forget their gift cards at home. And by showcasing their loyalty program in Android Pay, merchants can acquire and engage customers. Additionally, merchants can create a fast checkout experience for their mobile sites and apps, thereby enhancing the shopping experience and improving conversion.

Accepting mobile payments is faster

than accepting traditional credit and debit cards.

Customers no longer need to spend time searching for their wallet and finding the right card.

Not all merchants accept mobile payments yet, though contactless mobile payments are catching on in popularity. Before merchants can accept payments via smartphone like Apple or Android Pay, you must have a compatible contactless terminal. Premier offers credit card terminals that are equipped to accept these mobile payment options.
