Merchants can leverage their Verifone NFC-capable terminals today to support the Apple Pay contactless payment solution running on iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air 3, iPad mini 3 and Apple Watch. Launched in October 2014, Apple Pay is already being supported at 200,000 retailers with Verifone terminals. Consumers with iPhone 6’s have Apple Pay pre-loaded and can quickly add payment types or link to their iTunes credit card on file.
Verifone and Google Wallet have come together to make phone payments a reality. By the May 2011 launch date Verifone had enabled 12 of the 14 retailers accepting Google Wallet. Brands in the pilot included American Eagle Outfitters,® Bloomingdale’s,® Champs Sports,® Foot Locker,® GUESS,® Macy’s,® Radio Shack,® The Container Store® and Toys “R” Us.®
