Make checkout simpler by adding Apple Pay® with PayPal

Businesses looking to maximize their revenue and conversions should accept the payment methods their customers want to use — and that includes popular digital wallets like Apple Pay. The result? You may be able to capture more sales and improve your checkout experience.

The benefits and ease of accepting digital wallets

Offering checkout options like digital wallets provide several benefits for both merchants and shoppers, including:

  • Greater speed and convenience. Digital wallets let people pay with a tap, which can reduce online cart abandonment and speed up checkout lines.

  • Increased security. Digital wallets require authentication, such as a PIN, fingerprint, network tokenization or face scan. This can protect customers from having their payment methods stolen while also protecting merchants against fraud.

  • Better positioned for the future. Digital wallets are becoming the payment method of choice for digital-native consumers who always have their phones close at hand. By accepting digital wallets, you can cater to millennial and Gen Z shoppers, who hold significant purchasing power.

And there are even more reasons why acceptingdiversified payment methods can help you increase sales and build loyalty by making it easier for customers to buy: 

Many people have strong preferences for which payment methods they want to use. If you can’t accept their preferred payment method, they may decide to shop somewhere else.68% of consumers surveyed globally say that they will not shop there if the retailer does not offer their preferred payment type.1

By making it easy for customers to pay how they want to pay using their preferred payment method, you can give customers one more reason to keep coming back.
