A first to market, one-touch parking payment experience for drivers
LONDON, United Kingdom, Jan. 30, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PayByPhone, the world's leading mobile parking payment provider, announced today its extension of Apple Pay to the UK. The one-touch payment experience is an industry first in the UK parking market.
Drivers within select UK cities will automatically default to Apple Pay if their device is already set up to make payments using the service. The option to change payment methods remains, giving users the freedom to select from multiple payment options.
For those currently without Apple Pay, set up is very intuitive and users can follow instructions in their phone settings and be up and running in minutes. Drivers can then choose Apple Pay as a default form of payment within the app. 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 then authorised with a one-time unique dynamic security code.
"Apple Pay will transform the parking journey for PayByPhone users, creating an industry leading experience for our growing user base. We're now challenging coins and credit card payments for speed, and of course, with PayByPhone you can extend your parking session on the move," explains Kevin Bird, Commercial Director of PayByPhone UK.
Apple Pay is easy to start using, and drivers will continue to receive all the rewards and benfits offered by credit and debit cards. For a full list of cities currently offering Apple Pay or for more information, please visit us at www.paybyphone.co.uk/applepay
