Valitor Offers ApplePay as Service Partner in Europe
Apple Inc. announced last week that Britain would be the first country outside the US to offer ApplePay as a payment method. It was revealed that 70% of UK card holders will be able to register their card in an ApplePay-wallet as of July 1st.
Concurrently Valitor, a leading acquirer and issuer, became one of six companies from among 150 acquirers in the European market to service ApplePay. Valitor will provide its services in close cooperation with its partner, the US firm Stripe. From July 1, British merchants who use Stripe will be able to develop support mechanisms for using ApplePay as a payment option into their own iOS application. Stripe, with Valitor as acquirer, is one of the few companies that will be able to offer British merchants this service in the first phase of implementation. Subsequently, it will be possible for Valitor’s other partners in the British market to accept payments with ApplePay.
Vidar Thorkelsson, CEO of Valitor: "The Valitor team is very proud of this challenge which provides us with new opportunities in the European market. This is, above all, an important recognition for our people and yet another confirmation of our strong core competence within product development and technical integration with partners.”
