Staples business customers have already been using Apple Pay for
purchases within the Staples iPhone app and in Staples’ stores. Now
users visiting Staples’ mobile website with Safari will have the ability
to check out using Apple Pay with just a finger on Touch ID, with no
need to manually fill out lengthy account forms or repeatedly type in
shipping and billing information.
“Staples’ customers demand seamless check-out when making purchases on
the go, so they can get back to running their business,” said Faisal
Masud, executive vice president, global e-commerce, Staples. “Apple Pay
on Staples’ mobile web lets customers securely shop on their phone
without having to open an app. We’ve been very pleased with the response
to Apple Pay in our iPhone app and look forward to similar success with
this new, seamless option on mobile web.”
Security and privacy is at the core of Apple Pay. When customers use a
credit or debit card with Apple Pay, the actual card numbers are not
stored on the device, or on Apple servers. Instead, a unique Device
Account Number is assigned, encrypted and securely stored in the
Secure Element on the device. Each transaction is authorized with a
one-time unique dynamic security code.
In Staples’ stores, Apple Pay works with iPhone 6 and later and Apple
Watch. When paying for goods and services on the go within the Staples’
App or on Staples’ mobile website, Apple Pay works with iPhone 6 and
later, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, and iPad mini 3 and later. Apple Pay in
Safari also lets customers use Apple Pay on any Mac introduced in or
after 2012 running macOS Sierra and confirm the payment with iPhone 6 or
later or Apple Watch. Staples also offers Apple Pay within Makr,
a proprietary iPhone and iPad app that enables people to design and
print one-of-a-kind materials.
