Czechs Spending Billions By Mobile Payments

Apple Pay, Apple’s mobile payment service, is expanding to Israel and South Africa soon, after launching in Mexico in February. First introduced in 2014, Apple Pay is now available in over 50 countries and regions helping Apple users with transactions through NFC chips built into their mobile phones around the world. At that time, it seemed like a revolutionary idea that would take a while to catch on. Six years later, more than half the iPhone users out there are paying with their mobile phones. Apple Pay currently accounts for 10 percent of all global card transactions. And the Czechs have already spent billions of euros since the Apple Pay and Google Pay service was launched two years ago.

Apple Pay vs. Apple Wallet

Apple Pay was designed to replace our leather wallets. And Apple is well on its way to doing just that. In today’s world, Apple Pay is truly one of the best ways to shop online and in person, and is much more secure than cards or cash. It is a secure and easy way for people to make purchases in stores, in apps, and on the web.

How Can You Set Up Apple Pay?

Apple Pay provides a more convenient way to pay. It is basically a digital wallet on your iPhone and other Apple devices that lets you pay in physical stores, within mobile apps, and on the web. Your actual card number is never stored on your phone or on Apple’s servers. Instead, Apple Pay uses a specific device number and a unique transaction code to process payments and protect your information. This allows Apple Pay to be faster and more secure than a plastic card.
