Apple Pay hasn’t swept the world by storm just yet, but Apple’s homegrown payment service continues to grow by leaps and bounds. As an illustrative example, Tim Cook said during Apple’s most recent earnings conference call that the number of Apple Pay transactions increased by 500% year over year. Looking ahead, we can expect the volume of Apple Pay transactions to grow even more now that macOS Sierra supports Apple Pay on the web. Additionally, Apple’s recently revamped MacBook Pro has a Touch ID sensor built right into the keyboard, providing an efficient means to authenticate online transactions.
In an effort to encourage Mac users to embrace online payments via Apple Pay, Apple today quietly rolled out a new promotion that offers users exclusive deals at some big name retail outlets when they purchase goods via Apple Pay on the web.
The advertised deals are as follows:
