Apple Pay

What is Apple Pay?

Apple Pay is a mobile wallet that takes advantage of NFC (Near-Field-Communication) technology, also known as "Tap & Pay". It allows consumers with iPhones to "load" their various credit cards into their phone. When ready to make a purchase, they open the wallet app and tap their phone against the credit card reader.

Apple Pay

Are there limitations?

With it's recent release, there are some limitations with ApplePay:

How much does it cost to accept ApplePay?

Transactions are handled using the traditional interchange rates associated with the customer's credit card. There are no additional fees to the merchant.

How do I accept ApplePay?

As a merchant, all you need is a terminal that supports NFC. Most of Helcim's terminals now support near-field payments, and merchants are able to automatically accept Apple Pay through these terminals. Transactions work the same way as exiting Tap & Pay cards such as MasterCard's PayPass and Visa's PayWave. There is no need for any special request when you open your Helcim merchant account. As long as your terminal supports NFC, your business will be able to accept Apple Pay transactions.
