What does this method consist of?

In 2014 introduced Apple Pay, although its international deployment has been somewhat slow, In Europe its official launch was in July 2016 in France. Apple Pay reduces transactions to a simple contact between iPhone and POS, a procedure similar to contactless cards. Through the use of NFC technology, combined with Touch ID and Passbook, Apple makes available to the user a new form of trust transaction with which to avoid traditional payment methods. Apple Pay works with the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, Apple Watch, iPad mini 4, iPad Air 2, and both iPad Pro models.

Why testing on mobile devices?

Things should be tested

  • Verification of the purchasing process
  • That the purchase is charged to the bank
  • The codes: take into account that they are usually differentiated by type of transaction, if it is chip and signature, chip and pin, Wireless, or if the card is forced to pass the band or manually enter the numbers (dude that is not The normal thing, nor the commercials usually allow).
  • Return of purchases

The testing process is very similar to that of any other online payment platform, or payment gateways and mobile testing devices also.
