It was announced this morning that Circle, a global financial tech company, has begun accepting Apple Pay for its customers. It is set to be designed for “crypto-native businesses.”
The company is the creator and issuer of USDC stablecoins and is also a peer-to-peer payment service.
Here is a statement the company made about finally supporting Apple’s mobile-based payment method:
“We’re excited to announce that eligible businesses who build with Circle can now help further boost their sales by accepting Apple Pay — an easy, secure, and private way to pay. Customers can quickly checkout using the devices they carry every day. Apple Pay is also a safer and faster way to pay using the Safari browser and in apps because customers will no longer have to create an account or fill out lengthy forms…This can be especially powerful for crypto-native businesses, since it can help them create stronger connections with customers who want to pay using more traditional methods and even enable them to buy crypto with Apple Pay on their preferred exchange. In fact, Apple Pay and Circle’s Payments solution make it possible for crypto-native businesses to accept payments from customers who don’t use crypto at all. NFT marketplaces, crypto gaming, crypto exchanges, crypto wallets and cross-border remittance providers can help their business grow by making checkout easy with Apple Pay and Circle.”
