Xpollens, which helps Fintechs, retailers and businesses integrate a full range of payment services, today brings its customers Apple Pay, which is transforming payments with an easy, secure and private way to pay.
With Apple Pay on iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad and Mac, customers can make fast and convenient purchases in stores, in apps and on websites.
Natixis Payments and Visa joined forces in early 2019 to develop Xpollens, a fully white labelled “Payments in a box” innovative payment service. Xpollens provides Fintechs with access to payment methods that were previously reserved for banks. Most importantly, the ‘Payments in a box’ solution, based on the merged APIs of Natixis Payments and Visa, can be implemented fast, in just 100 days. The integration of Apple Pay will help answer high demand for greater control, functionality and better user experience. Apple Pay will be available as soon as Xpollens’ solution goes live. Xpollens is also available for retailers and businesses.
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.
“Xpollens removes the complexity of issuing and managing payments methods, allowing Fintechs, retailers and businesses to concentrate on their core business by providing the best customer experience. Apple Pay is at the heart of Xpollens, offering an easy mobile payment solution to enhance the customers’ journey”, explains Pierre-Antoine Vacheron, CEO Natixis Payments and Member of the Senior Management Committee of Natixis.
“Offering Apple Pay will definitely help Xpollens’ Fintech users to provide a seamless, easy and fast payment experience to their customers”, says Visa Head of Strategic Partnerships Europe, SVP Bill Gajda.
Apple Pay is easy to set up and users will continue to receive all of the rewards and benefits offered by Natixis Payments and Visa cards.
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.
