Users Have Apple Pay Difficulties and Issues at Checkout: Study States

Apple Pay issues surface once in a while since its debut in the fall of 2014. At first, some stores didn’t like this idea. Customers found it attractive and simple to check out using only the iPhone 6 or 6 Plus and banks, stores and retailers quickly joined the popular trend. More and more unions are adding support for this young mobile payment system.

Some customers though experience Apple Pay checkout problem or issues. Such information was revealed by one study conducted by Phoenix Marketing International. It looks like the experience isn’t smooth for a lot of users because the number of banks that support Pay is higher than the number of official businesses that offer it.

As the survey shows, Apple Pay difficulties are faced by over 50 percent of respondents [it is worth to mention that nearly 3,000 users tooks part in the survey and nearly 70 percent of them have confirmed signing up for Apple Pay].

A lot of potential customers who are willing to pay with Pay say that locations they tried to use weren’t fully equipped and didn’t allow checkout option. While half of respondents managed to pay [it took really long to process their transactions] over 40 percent of users noted that the new technology wasn’t familiar to cashiers. Some users also faced other kinds of problems that included transactions being counted twice or posted incorrectly.

Other complaints mentioned point to Apple Pay fraud and this resulted in how banks started to activate customer’s credit cards. They learned from reports about users adding stolen credit card information into Pay and trying to check out with their iPhones. About 8 percent of all mobile transactions with the iDevices were fraudulent.

There was a different study made by Citi Research and it shows the similar facts about Apple Pay not working properly or stores not knowing about such a payment option in the U.S. The iOS giant still thinks about bringing its Pay service to Canada and other countries of the world.

Apple Pay Fraud Transaction Level Reaches Six Percent

Has fraud come to Apple Pay service? Experts think it has, and Apple Pay fraud transaction is not something mysterious and fantastic. This is the reality. According to reports, about six percent of all Pay transactions are fraudulent.

Who is to be blamed for Apple Pay fraud risk? The iOS giant isn’t responsible for everything, right? There are underlying issues at the U.S. banks and Apple Pay fraud protection is something they should also help with.

The iPhone 6 creator also already done much to secure your transactions. It encrypts data on the smartphone, doesn’t share it with cloud or retailers, uses one-time code for each transaction and fingerprints to make sure that a stolen gadget will not participate in making purchases with a stolen credit card data.

The 6 percent of fraudulent transactions made via the new mobile payment system released by Apple is about 0.1 percent of traditional ‘plastic’ purchases. The figures have been shared by payment expert Cherian Abraham who assures that the problem is ‘growing like a weed’ while everyone had hopes that the service would be the most secure method to pay with a mobile device.

How can the banks solve the issue with Apple Pay fraud risk and transactions? As expert notes, fraudsters get their hands on stolen credit card information [they can often just purchase such data online] and easily add the card that doesn’t belong to them to Apple Pay because this procedure is fast and simple. Once authentication is successful, they can pay for goods till the credit card is canceled. Sadly, U.S. banks also try to simplify the process and don’t authorize the information and the credit card.

According to analysts, if banks took time to match the information on the credit card and iPhone owner, it could secure the transactions and minimize the amount of frauds.
