Fort Worth, TX (PRWEB) September 16, 2014
First American Payment Systems, a leading payment processor, will allow merchants and partners to accept Apple Pay (TM), a payment solution based on Near Field Communication (NFC) technology, upon its release in October.
“First American has been watching the evolution of mobile payments and digital wallets closely, preparing our merchants and partners for their acceptance,” said Sarah Guckes, Vice President of Marketing. “We have several products in our portfolio that accommodate Apple Pay and other NFC payments. We are proud to support our merchants and partners with products that keep them competitive in the market and make it easy for their customers to pay.”
In addition to NFC-ready devices, First American also offers EMV-capable devices with NFC technology that will allow merchants to be ready for both Apple Pay and the upcoming EMV requirements in 2015.
“There hasn’t been a better time for merchants to make equipment upgrades,” said Guckes. “With both Apple Pay and the EMV requirements on the horizon, merchants can take advantage of one equipment upgrade to serve their multiple payment needs.”
