Apple
I use it not only at stores in person but also online. It's so easy to use. I've been a victim of identity theft before and I just feel safer using it online than entering my individual credit card info every time. Plus I get cashback on purchases!

Cons
Apple
  • The ability for other integrations to still have their restricting permissions to be used. As an example, I can't use Apple Pay and still choose when I want my delivery because it's not in Apple Pay's coding to allow outside restrictions.

  • Reporting is robust but complicated.

Our choice to use Apple Pay was made because of the fast and easy access to funds, it is largely accepted by most vendors and it is a knowingly secure platform for transactions. Making it a trusted and effective resource for our company to utilize. We also found the setup to be more user-friendly.

Merchant e solutions has a truly awful admin website and is clunky to use. There are almost no options for customization. Bluesnap allows configuration to fit our needs and a much better customer service experience.
