BlueSnap’s Platform is designed for frictionless payment experiences and merchants that implement Apple Pay can expect significant increases in conversions compared to traditional checkout experiences.

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.
“Mobile wallets are essential when selling online and especially on mobile, said Ralph Dangelmaier, CEO BlueSnap. “We designed our platform to empower merchants to offer frictionless payment experiences for online checkout, marketplaces and e-invoicing and we are pleased to offer Apple Pay to help our merchants deliver on that experience.”
Apple Pay is easy to set up and users will continue to receive all of the rewards and benefits offered by credit and debit 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, and the latest Apple devices.
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.
