Fast ApplePay Integration:
It is a good news for the users of Apple products; the leading merchant services provider and national Point of Sale Systems, Harbortouch, will now be supporting payment received through Apple Pay from the users of Apple products. After the said service will be launched, it will facilitate a huge number of customers of Apple products as the thousands of existing merchants will be able to receive payments through Apple Pay.
The option of paying through the newly announced method i.e. Apple Pay will be available for the customers at existing and new Harbortouch merchants that are using the Perkwave Terminal that is NFC-enabled by the Company.
The Supported Devices
The devices that will support the payment through Apple Pay will be Apple Watch, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus.
How to Pay?
The method of making payments through this option is rather easy. All they need to do is to tap near the contactless NFC reader on their Apple devices i.e. Apple Watch, iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 plus for making the payment to Harbortouch.
The biggest benefit that the customers will derive from this advanced payment method is a convenient and secure way for making payments. The fact that Apple Pay is supported by most of the banks in the U.S., this development is surely going to make things easier for its customers. The process used by Apple Pay is called “tokenization”. It secures the sensitive information during the transaction made through this method. A one-time security code is created through this process for every transaction initiated by the user. Through this method, the need of sharing debit or credit card number is completely eliminated and hence, there is no risk of theft attached.
Message from the CEO
Talking about this development the CEO of Harbortouch, Jared Isaacman, said in his statement that they, as a company, are excited on launching this advanced payment options for their customers as it will help in facilitating their customer. They were always keen on this integration and have been working on it for quite some time. Furthermore, he also stated that another ground-breaking program will be announced by them on the 2nd of October at Accelerate 2014 Sales Conference in New Orleans. Since Harbortouch is always looking to provide easy ways to their customers for making payments, the program in operation that will be launched soon will surely transform the way of making payments in restaurants and other hospitality purposes. It will be in sync with the Apple Pay for easy payment method.
The good news for the merchants using the Hospitality POS system from Harbortouch is that they will be able to take part in advanced initiatives by the Apple Pay. The initiatives will be announced at the end of this month. It is offered by Harbortouch as “free POS program” for the retail businesses and restaurants that allow that installation of the full-featured system without paying any up-front cost.
