Offering an Easy, Secure & Private Way to Pay
Global Payments Inc. (NYSE: GPN), a leading worldwide provider of payment technology services, now supports PARKnSHOP - the ability to accept credit and debit card payments with Apple Pay - which is transforming mobile payments with an easy, secure and private way to pay that is fast and convenient in Hong Kong.
Apple Pay is now live in the PARKnSHOP mobile app so customers can enjoy the convenience of paying quickly and easily with Apple Pay while grocery shopping on an iPhone or iPad. Global Payments is pleased to enable PARKnSHOP to offer this checkout option.
Security and privacy are at the core of Apple Pay. When you use a credit or debit card with Apple Pay, the actual card numbers are not stored on the device, nor on Apple servers. Instead, a unique Device Account Number is assigned, encrypted and securely stored in the Secure Element on your device. Each transaction is authorized with a one-time unique dynamic security code.
It is PARKnSHOP’s mission to bring customers the best mobile shopping experience by embracing cutting-edge technologies. Apple Pay is designed to allow PARKnSHOP to deliver greatly increased security, privacy and convenience to customers. With Global Payments, PARKnSHOP is able to integrate with Apple Pay seamlessly and offer an enhanced mobile shopping experience to the customers.
“Global Payments continues to focus on implementing and delivering innovative and secure payment technology solutions,” said Frank T. Young, SVP, Global Product and Innovation of Global Payments. “Making Apple Pay available in the PARKnSHOP mobile app demonstrates this commitment and we’re excited to offer this to our merchants in Hong Kong.”
Apple Pay is easy to set up and users will continue to receive all of the rewards and benefits offered by credit and debit cards. Online shopping in apps accepting Apple Pay is as simple as the touch of a finger with Touch ID, so there is no need to manually fill out lengthy account forms or repeatedly type in shipping and billing information. When paying for goods and services within apps, Apple Pay works with iPhone 6 and later, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, and iPad mini 3 and later.
