October 03, 2014 // Franchising.com // Orlando, FL - The world of technology is rapidly evolving, most recently showcased in the launch of the revolutionary Apple iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and Apple Watch. The introduction of these state-of-the-art devices coupled with the announcement of the first-of-its kind ApplePay, is creating a substantial shift in the way businesses must interact with consumers. In an effort to stay ahead of the changes, Franchise Payments Network (FPN), the only credit card processing company that focuses entirely on the franchise industry, announced today that they will be fully supporting and equipping all franchises who choose to accept ApplePay in their locations beginning in Oct.
Dedicated to delivering the best possible payment processing solutions to franchisors and their franchisees, FPN deployed notification to its nearly 150 franchise brands, alerting them of that the company is on top of Apple’s new development and is ready to equip locations with needed hardware by the time ApplePay officially launches.
With this new payment system, iPhone 6 and 6 Plus owners will be able to make payments for goods and services with their iPhones, both in stores and within participating apps, using the near-field communication (NFC) chip built into the devices. Tom Epstein, CEO of Franchise Payments Network, is extremely excited about the possibilities that this new payment system will offer for franchise systems in particular.
"Not only is this a very exciting time for consumers, but it is also an extremely exciting time for the payment and franchise industry," said Tom Epstein, CEO of FPN.
