Point-of-sale manufacturer ShopKeep today updated its official iPad app with support for Apple Pay, now allowing customers to pay with their iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus. Merchants can accept Apple Pay payments if they have a ShopKeep terminal and an Ingenico iCMP Bluetooth Credit Card reader, which sells for $249 and also supports mangetic swipe and contactless payments. The reader will also be able to support EMV chip card payments in the future.
What's New in Version 2.5.2
Introducing support for Apple Pay.
ShopKeep has partnered with Ingenico, the global leader in secure electronic transactions, to integrate support for the iCMP card reader. This reader allows merchants to accept various forms of credit card payments, including magnetic swipe and contactless. This reader also supports chip card (EMV) capabilities, and support in the app will be available early next year ahead of the liability transition deadline.
ShopKeep's move to accept Apple Pay comes a few weeks after payment processing service Square announced that it would be supporting Apple Pay at some point in 2015. Square would have to release all new hardware with built-in NFC connectivity to support Apple Pay, as its current reader is not able to accept the payment method.
ShopKeep is a free app for the iPad and can be downloaded through the App Store. [Direct Link]
