Understanding Apple Pay:
Overview and Market Impact Analysis

Since Apple Pay launched in October, 2014 it has made many media headlines. Millions of people know what Apple Pay is, but far fewer actually know how it works, who it impacts and why it’s important. With this online training course and accompanying white paper you can expect to first build a foundational level of knowledge related to the specifications, requirements and processes involved with Apple Pay payments. This is followed by detailed process flows for the primary steps of using Apple Pay, from adding payment cards to using Apple Pay in-store or within mobile applications, all the way through transaction authorization and settlement.

The primary components of what makes Apple Pay work are defined both in the context of Apple Pay as well as how it pertains to other methods of payment, while the market implications of Apple Pay and it’s features are explained in terms of how it impacts consumers, merchants, card associations, card issuers and payment processors.
