By integrating Apple Pay into apps as a way to accept payments, it allows businesses to streamline purchases for customers, as users do not require entering in credit card details, but rather just the tap of their fingerprint on Touch ID. Apple Pay launched on November 17 in Canada, limited to cards issued by American Express.
