Apple Pay Coming to UK Charities
Offering an easy, secure and private way to pay
Alzheimer’s Society today announced their supporters can donate with ActionAid UK, Alzheimer's Society, Barnardo’s, British Heart Foundation, Cancer Research UK, Comic Relief, Concern Worldwide (UK), DEC, Marie Curie, Oxfam, (RED), The Royal British Legion, RNIB, RNLI, RSPB, RSPCA, Scope, Sightsavers, Unicef UK, VSO, WaterAid, and WWF-UK have all enabled Apple Pay to help raise money in an easy, secure and private way to pay that’s fast and convenient.
Michael Dent, Director of Fundraising at Alzheimer’s Society said:
'Offering supporters a quick and simple yet highly secure way to donate could be a real game changer for charities. People pay for goods online and on their mobiles every day with ease and should expect their charitable donation to be just as efficient and safe. This innovative technology will make single and regular donations much easier and we hope it will increase our fundraising so we can support even more people living with dementia, fund further treatments and ultimately find a cure.'
Security and privacy is at the core of Apple Pay. When you use a credit or debit card with Apple Pay, the actual card numbers are not stored on the device, nor on Apple servers. Instead, a unique Device Account Number is assigned, encrypted and securely stored in the Secure Element on your device. Each transaction is authorised with a one-time unique dynamic security code.
Apple Pay is easy to set up and users will continue to receive all of the rewards and beneﬁts offered by credit and debit cards. In stores, Apple Pay works with iPhone SE, iPhone 6 and later, and Apple Watch.
Online shopping in apps and on websites accepting Apple Pay is as simple as the touch of a finger with Touch ID, so there’s no need to manually fill out lengthy account forms or repeatedly type in shipping and billing information. When paying for goods and services on the go in apps or Safari, Apple Pay works with iPhone 6 and later, iPhone SE, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, and iPad mini 3 and later. You can also use Apple Pay in Safari on any Mac introduced in or after 2012 running macOS Sierra and confirm the payment with iPhone 6 or later or Apple Watch, or with Touch ID on the new MacBook Pro.
