A new one-touch parking payment experience for drivers
30 April, 2018, United Kingdom --- PayByPhone, the world’s leading mobile parking payment
provider, announced today its extension of Apple Pay and Google Pay to the City of Lincoln.
Users have the freedom to select from multiple payment options, but now, for ease, within select UK cities like Lincoln, the PayByPhone app will automatically default to Apple Pay or Google Pay if the user’s device is already set up to make payments using the service.
For those currently without Apple Pay, set up is easy and very intuitive. Users can follow instructions in their mobile phone settings and be up and running in minutes. Drivers can then choose Apple Pay as a default form of payment within the PayByPhone app. And using Apple pay is secure - credit or debit card details are not stored on the user’s device or on Apple servers. Instead, a unique Device Account Number is assigned, encrypted and securely stored in the Secure Element on the mobile device. Each transaction is then authorised with a one-time unique dynamic security code.
“The addition of Apple Pay and Google Pay will transform the parking journey for PayByPhone users in Lincoln, creating an industry leading experience for our growing user base. We’re now challenging coins and credit card payments for speed, and of course, with PayByPhone you can extend your parking session on the move helping to avoid costly parking fines,” explains Anthony Cashel, Marketing Manager of PayByPhone UK.
Apple Pay is easy to start using, and drivers will continue to receive all the rewards and benefits
offered by credit and debit cards. For a full list of cities where Apple Pay can be used with PayByPhone, or for more information please visit www.paybyphone.co.uk/applepay.
The PayByPhone app also supports Google Pay, Google’s new payment app for Android devices, which combines the previous Android Pay and Google Wallet. Similar to its iOS counterpart, Google Pay provides a simple, secure way to complete payments, by encrypting credit card numbers.
