Apple Pay Coming to All Shopify Stores
Ecommerce platform Shopify will be an early adopter of Apple Pay's new web-based payments.
Apple Pay will allow consumers to quickly and securely check out via Safari on iPhone, iPad, and Mac with one touch. Apple Pay was previously only available for in-person purchases.
All Shopify stores, in every country, will be able to accept Apple Pay if they're using Shopify Payments, Stripe, Braintree, FirstData Payeezy, Authorize.Net or CyberSource.
"Currently, online shoppers encounter a lot of friction when trying to purchase items on a mobile device. Apple Pay can help provide consumers with seamless purchase experiences," said Jason Normore, Director of Engineering at Shopify. "Shopify's mission has always been to enable our merchants to offer their customers the best experience, and that's why the announcement of Apple Pay coming to the web is so exciting. Now more than 275,000 small and medium-sized businesses are laying the groundwork for a better shopping experience on iPhone, iPad and Mac."
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 the device. Each transaction is authorized with a one-time unique dynamic security code.
