Verifone has announced that two of its NFC payment terminals will support the new Apple Pay store functionality coming in iOS 9.
Verifone will be one of the first companies to support store credit cards in Apple Pay through their NFC payment terminals, the company has announced. Starting with iOS 9, Apple Pay will allow users to store credit cards acquired from merchants, which often include loyalty reward programs. In addition to support in two of their terminals, Verifone will work with six retailers to enable this functionality.
To start, Verifone will enable six national and global retailers to be the first to accept NFC loyalty transactions on Verifone's MX 915 and MX 925 terminals for their consumers to redeem rewards and accrue points.
Store loyalty cards will roll out this fall with the debut of iOS 9, and retailers like Kohl's and Walgreens have already announced compatibility. Other participating retailers include Coca-Cola, Panera Bread, Dunkin' Donuts, and JCPenney.
