Global Payments boards the Apple Pay train
Global Payments Inc., one of the largest worldwide providers of payment solutions, today announced its Integrated Solutions division, OpenEdge, fully supports Apple Pay, and will deliver the service to more than 2,000 integrated software application developers, according to a press release.
OpenEdge will add Apple Pay to its software development kit, allowing developers the ability to embed the payment service into their offerings, according to the announcement.
"Our developers look to us to help them deliver a comprehensive, seamless and smooth consumer payment experience through multiple points of interaction such as physical point of sale and Internet," Sid Singh, senior vice president and general manager of OpenEdge, said in a statement. "Online purchases in apps through Apple Pay will transform how consumers interact with merchants. For instance, a diner will be able to order and pay at the table or order ahead and use self-checkout. We're excited our partners, across verticals, will be able to access mobile payments through Apple Pay."
