pay within mobile apps downloaded onto a registered Apple device. By simply using Touch ID, users on supported Apple devices can quickly and securely provide all their payment and shipping information to check out with a single touch. The service looks set to make a big impact on how UK consumers pay for products and services.

Judo’s technology integrates with any mobile app, offering a native in-app experience that makes payments disappear into the user experience. Additionally, judo’s mobile-specific fraud prevention technology, with real-time fraud scoring, helps businesses to overcome fraud and security concerns. Judo’s integration with Apple Pay will enable consumers to quickly and securely pay for everyday items.

“Cardless technology like Apple Pay will revolutionise the way we buy goods. The phrase game changer is over-used but this will genuinely change consumers’ behaviour and we couldn’t be happier to be involved at the initial launch,” comments Dennis Jones, CEO of judo.

“Apple Pay has already transformed mobile payments for businesses in the US and now we have a clear timeline for the launch of Apple Pay in the UK. The integration of Apple Pay into our iOS SDK will enable consumers to utilise the smart computer in their pocket.”

The UK is widely expected to see a faster adoption of Apple Pay compared to the US because of the existing infrastructure in place to support contactless card payments.  This same technology combined with behind-the-scenes technology known as “tokenisation” allows for simple, secure card payments using only your mobile phone.
