ATLANTA & HONG KONG–July 22, 2016 — Global Payments Inc. (NYSE: GPN), a leading worldwide provider of payment technology services, is pleased to offer merchants in Hong Kong the ability to accept credit and debit card payments via Apple Pay™, which is transforming mobile payments with an easy, secure and private way to pay that’s fast and convenient.
Global Payments’ robust suite of payments solutions are fully enabled in Hong Kong, allowing in-store as well as iOS app merchants to offer their customers the convenience of paying quickly and easily with Apple Pay.
Security and privacy is at the core of Apple Pay. 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 your device. Each transaction is authorized with a one-time unique dynamic security code.
“Global Payments continues to focus on implementing and delivering innovative and secure payment technology solutions to all of our customers around the world,” said Frank T. Young, SVP, Global Product and Innovation. “Making Apple Pay available demonstrates this commitment and we’re excited to offer our merchants in Hong Kong the ability to accept the easy, secure and private way to pay.”
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 SE, 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 SE, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 4 and iPad Pro.
