ID TECH's contactless readers now Apple Pay compatibleID TECH, a manufacturer of secure payment solutions, mobile payment, point of sale and digital signage, this week announced its contactless readers support Apple Pay.
ID TECH, which claims to have the largest installed base of unattended NFC and contactless devices deployed worldwide, said its contactless product line now allows Apple Pay users to make payment transactions with the tap of their iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus or Apple Watch.
"ID TECH with the ViVOpay products has been at the forefront of the NFC adoption since its beginning," said Eric Lecesne, COO and vice president of products at ID TECH. "With Apple Pay, ID TECH's long term commitment to NFC has been validated once again."
ID TECH's contactless product line has a variety of product offerings from all-in-one NFC, magstripe and EMV payment terminals to contactless and NFC-only reader modules. ID TECH's ViVOpay 4800, ViVOPay 5000 and Xpress CM100 are products for merchants to integrate contactless payment acceptance into existing point-of-sale systems to support NFC and Apple Pay. These products, as well as ID TECH's contact EMV products, allow for merchants to prepare for the October 2015 mandate of contact and contactless EMV, according to the press release.
In addition to Apple Pay, ID TECH's contactless products are also capable of accepting Google Wallet, Softcard (formerly Isis Mobile Wallet) and other NFC mobile wallets, and support all major payment brands. ID TECH said its contactless readers and technology are currently being widely used in retail, quick-service restaurants, public transportation and other unattended solutions such as vending machines, kiosks and the parking industry.
