PayHawk promises physical protection in Apple Pay partnership


PayHawk has signed an agreement to introduce Apple Pay in a bid to protect its customers from handing their payment card to someone else, touching physical buttons and exchanging cash.

The financial technology companies have made it possible for PayHawk customers to hold their iPhone or Apple Watch near a card machine to make a contactless payment. 

Ensuring security involved in the transactions, each Apple Pay purchase is authenticated with Face ID, Touch ID, or device passcode, as well as a one-time unique dynamic security code.

Customers can use the new integration on iPhone, iPad, and Mac as PayHawk promises for faster and more convenient purchases in apps or on the web in Safari without having to create accounts or repeat shipping and billing information.

Apple Pay continues to enhance its customer reach as June this year saw the integration of the digital wallet to Coinbase Card, along with its BitPay partnership in February. This comes at a time where mobile payments are heavily increasing post-pandemic for health purposes.
