TORONTO & ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Global Payments Inc. (NYSE: GPN), a leading worldwide provider of
payment technology services, is pleased to offer its merchants in Canada
the ability to accept American Express payments made with Apple Pay™,
which is transforming mobile payments with an easy, secure and private
way to pay.
As an Apple Pay-qualified payment provider, Global Payments’ robust
suite of payments solutions is fully enabled for Apple Pay acceptance,
allowing merchants to offer their customers the convenience of Apple Pay
acceptance in-store, in-app and on-the-go.
“Following successful enablement in the U.S. and the UK, Global Payments
is pleased to be one of the first providers in Canada to offer merchants
the exciting opportunity to accept Apple Pay,” said Frank T. Young, SVP,
Global Product and Innovation. “Our continued commitment to leading
payments technology allows us to be at the forefront in delivering this
innovative payments solution to our merchants.”
Security and privacy are at the core of Apple Pay. The solution is
designed to leverage highly-secure fingerprint authentication
technology, as well as a unique Device Account Number that is assigned,
encrypted and securely stored in the Secure Element of the Apple device,
ensuring actual card numbers are not stored on the device or on Apple
servers. Further, each transaction is authorized with a one-time unique
dynamic security code, instead of using the security code on the back of
the payment card.
Apple Pay is easy to set up and users will continue to receive all of
their card rewards and beneﬁts. In stores, Apple Pay works with Apple
Watch and the iPhone 6 series of devices. When paying for goods and
services within apps, Apple Pay is compatible with the iPhone 6 series,
iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 4 and iPad Pro.
