One of Africa's leading payments platforms, Paystack, has rolled out its "Pay With Apple Pay" payment option in Cote D'Ivoire and South Africa. Paystack rolled out the feature in Nigeria in 2021 and later introduced the option in Ghana.
Apple Pay is a mobile payment and digital wallet service by Apple. It enables frictionless payments that allow customers to authorise payments with Touch ID or Face ID instead of manually filling out long payment forms.
By enabling Pay with Apple Pay, merchants can automatically improve their business' reach and enable payments via a fast, easy, and secure method that's native to millions of Apple users across the world.
In the latest announcement, Paystack said, "Today, we're excited to announce that Pay with Apple Pay is now available to Paystack merchants in South Africa and Côte d'Ivoire. With Apple Pay, you can accept payments quickly and securely from millions of Apple Pay users in the 60+ countries where Apple Pay is supported, including the USA, UK, and Canada".
From now on, customers in Côte d'Ivoire and South Africa paying with an international-issued card with Apple Pay enabled on their Apple devices will automatically see the option to checkout using Apple Pay and can complete the transaction using Touch ID or Face ID.
