Amsterdam - ADYEN (AMS: ADYEN), the payments platform of choice for many of the world’s leading companies, now enables Dutch businesses to offer Apple Pay, providing them with an easy, secure and private way to pay that is fast and convenient for online in-app and in-store purchases. Businesses enabling Apple Pay through Adyen in The Netherlands include BCC, citizenM, G-Star RAW, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, Pathé Cinema, Thuisbezorgd.nl and Wehkamp.
Adyen has been supporting businesses to bring Apple Pay to their customers since 2014 and into over 30 markets including Australia, Singapore, Brazil, UK, France, Switzerland and most recently Luxembourg.
"According to our data, businesses offering Apple Pay benefit from higher conversion rates whilst customers gain integrated security through tokenization and biometric verification." said Edgar Verschuur, Adyen Head of Global Acquiring. He continues, “With the market moving to strong authentication mechanisms (SCA as part of PSD2 regulation) this September in Europe, Apple Pay is ready to go and provides even more choice for cardholders and merchants without affecting conversion.
Merchants can easily enable Apple Pay globally with one single integration to Adyen.
Security and privacy are 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.
With iPhone and Apple Watch, customers can pay with Apple Pay in stores, restaurants, taxis, vending machines and many more places. When shopping in apps or on the web in Safari with Apple Pay, there’s no need to manually fill out lengthy account forms or repeatedly type in shipping and billing information. Every Apple Pay purchase is authenticated with just a glance or a touch with Face ID or Touch ID, or a device's passcode.
