PLANO, Texas, Nov. 19, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GlobalOnePay, a leading provider of omni-channel payment processing technologies and merchant services, now supports Apple Pay, which is transforming mobile payments with an easy, secure and private way to pay that's fast and convenient.
GlobalOnePay merchants will now have another payment method in Canada to offer buyers. The GlobalOnePay payments processing platform is already accepting Apple Pay in the United States and United Kingdom, where the mobile payment service was already operating.
To begin accepting Apple Pay, Canadian GlobalOnePay merchants just need to show buyers that Apple Pay is now an accepted form of payment for American Express cardholders in-store or within apps. Apple Pay transaction processing has been built into the GlobalOnePay payment gateway and requires no additional software development or integration between the merchant and GlobalOnePay.
Security and privacy is at the core of Apple Pay. When you add a card to 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.
"Many consumers want additional, convenient payment methods, and GlobalOnePay is committed to ensuring our merchants can meet those demands," said Philip Fayer, president and chief executive officer of GlobalOnePay. "As of today, GlobalOnePay merchants in Canada can now accept Apple Pay across all commerce environments, including online, card present in-store, and mobile, including mPOS and within apps."
Apple Pay is easy to set up and users will continue to receive all of the rewards and benefits offered by their payment cards. In stores, Apple Pay works with iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch.
Online shopping in apps accepting Apple Pay is as simple as the touch of a finger with Touch ID, so there's 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 is compatible with iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3 and iPad Pro, upon availability.
Payment gateways, just one aspect of GlobalOnePay's payment processing platform, link mobile, in-app, in-store, POS software and e-commerce Web sites with payment networks. Merchants, developers and value-added resellers save time and money by using gateway services, because there is no need to integrate with multiple third party processors. The gateway provider market is primarily divided into well-established companies that have a traditional financial/payments background and technology, mobile and API-driven "new kids."
"GlobalOnePay is different in that it offers the size, services and reach of the large, traditional providers, but with the technology-driven savvy of the upstarts," said Fayer. "Our technologies simplify the critical payment process for omni-channel commerce without bureaucracy, the hassles of managing multiple providers or having to learn deep technical skills."
The GlobalOnePay merchant services platform accepts an ever-changing range of online, in-store and mobile payment options, including card not present, EMV, magnetic stripe and contactless payment, making it easier for businesses to deliver a unified purchase experience online, in-app and in-store. One of the few payment gateways with truly international reach, GlobalOnePay enables businesses to access 130+ global payment processors and sell and price in 80 currencies, making it easy for merchants to accept all major credit cards, bill and receive funds in their primary currency, and accept local and alternative payments, as well as to test and enter new markets without significant upfront capital costs.
Integration to the GlobalOnePay payment processing platform via API is simple, and once completed, merchants can access a unique, modular, integrated set of payment technologies to support omni-channel commerce, including: multi-currency processing, smart transaction routing, automatic account updating, automatic recurring billing, transaction decline recycling, and tokenization. GlobalOnePay supports all major independent software vendor/value-added reseller/shopping cart integrations, minimizing development time and cost.
As a full-service merchant service provider, GlobalOnePay offers a comprehensive portfolio of services to help businesses domestically and internationally, as well as global multi-currency processing for all commerce environments, including mCommerce, mPOS, in-app, and card present EMV; gateway and transaction routing; reporting and reconciliation; and credit card data security/PCI management.
GlobalOnePay, formally known as GlobalOne, provides a modular, scalable, cloud-based platform that enables omni-channel businesses of all sizes to grow faster by processing a wider range of payments from virtually any market in the world. Easy-to-implement, GlobalOnePay provides access to an industry-leading set of integrated technologies that increase sales revenues, efficiencies and security for online, in-store, in-app and mobile payments.
