Global Payments Announces Support for Apple Pay in Taiwan

Offering an Easy, Secure & Private Way to Pay 

Global Payments Inc. (NYSE: GPN), a leading worldwide provider of payment technology services, is pleased to offer merchants in Taiwan the ability to accept credit and debit card payments via Apple Pay, which is transforming mobile payments with an easy, secure and private way to pay that’s fast and convenient.

Global Payments’ robust suite of payments solutions are fully enabled in Taiwan, supporting in-store as well as iOS app merchants to offer their customers the convenience of paying quickly and easily with Apple Pay.

Security and privacy is 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.

“Global Payments continues to focus on implementing and delivering innovative and secure payment technology solutions. With the integration of Apple Pay, Global Payments is able to deliver convenient and secure payment technology solutions to merchants around the world,” said Frank T. Young, SVP, Global Product and Innovation. “Given the widespread mobile device adoption across Taiwan, extending our omnichannel acquiring services here allows us to be at the forefront in delivering cutting-edge mobile payment solutions in the Asia-Pacific region.”

Apple Pay is easy to set up and users will continue to receive all of the rewards and benefits offered by credit cards. In stores, Apple Pay works with iPhone SE, iPhone 6 and later, and Apple Watch.

Online shopping in apps and on websites accepting Apple Pay is as simple as the touch of a finger with Touch ID, so there’s no need to manually fill out lengthy account forms or repeatedly type in shipping and billing information. When paying for goods and services on the go in apps or Safari, Apple Pay works with iPhone 6 and later, iPhone SE, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, and iPad mini 3 and later. You can also use Apple Pay in Safari on any Mac introduced in or after 2012 running macOS Sierra and confirm the payment with iPhone 6 or later or Apple Watch, or with Touch ID on the new MacBook Pro.
