eWAY, the online payments provider that powers 21,000 online stores and processes a quarter of all online spend in Australia, will bring its customers Apple Pay, which is transforming mobile payments with an easy, secure and private way to pay that’s fast and convenient.
 
eWAY and Apple Pay will allow Aussie retailers to offer one­-touch mobile payments to their customers, within their app or in-­person, with eWAY’s SmartPOS mobile payments device. Accepting Apple Pay​ will be simple for merchants already on the platform, as eWAY already accepts contactless American Express payments, and now with Apple Pay it is even more convenient and secure. eWAY offers the most competitive AMEX rate on the market, included in its simple f​lat fee pricing structure,​ at 2.6%.

eWAY merchants who will accept Apple Pay within their app include some of Australia’s biggest online brands — Kogan.com, Living Social, Brands Exclusive, Eat Now and The Home.
 
Security and privacy is at the core of Apple Pay. When you add a credit or debit 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 authorised with a one-time unique dynamic security code.
 
“We are proud to offer Apple Pay to merchants. Our goal has always been to ensure Australian merchants are able to offer the most innovative, seamless payment solutions to their customers," said Matt Bullock, founder and CEO of eWAY.

"After 17 years in eCommerce payments we know what Aussie merchants need to be able to grow. Offering Apple Pay with our SmartPOS devices will undoubtedly help merchants improve the payments experience for their customers and in turn, increase their revenue.” 

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 store, Apple Pay works with iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch. 

When shopping online using apps that accept Apple Pay, it is as simple as the touch of a finger with Touch ID, removing the 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 and Apple Watch, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 4 and iPad Pro.
