Apple Pay is coming to the UK
Worldpay will offer its customers access to Apple Pay, a new category of service that transforms mobile payments with an easy, secure and private way to pay when it launches in the UK.
To support the rapid growth of m-commerce and in-app purchases in the UK, we are helping integrate Apple Pay into some of the world’s biggest travel and retail apps. Worldpay customers will be able to accept Apple Pay in iOS apps to improve their online conversion – all without needing to develop a bespoke payment capability.
Security and privacy is at the core of Apple Pay. When you add a credit or debit card to Apple Pay, the actual card numbers are not stored on the device, or 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 authorised with a one-time unique dynamic security code, instead of using the security code from the back of your card.
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. In stores, Apple Pay works with iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch. When paying for goods and services within apps, Apple Pay is compatible with iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3.
