Bestway announces Apple Pay trial at Abbey Road depot

Bestway Wholesale has introduced the Apple Pay system at its Abbey Road, north-west London, depot.

It means that the C&C/wholesaler is offering customers the option of paying for goods using their iPhones or iWatch in that branch rather than presenting their debit/credit cards or paying in cash.

Dawood PervezMarketing director Dawood Pervez (left) believes that the payment method will prove popular with retailers. He said: “Our customers have a much higher usage rate of Apple products than consumers in general. When we launched the Bestway mobile app, we did so knowing that 85% of customers have Apple rather than Android devices.

“The launch of Apple Pay in depot is a natural progression to adding convenience to our customers’ business lives and further establishes us as their wholesaler of choice.”

Dawood claimed that the system will facilitate transactions and cut the time spent at the terminal.

Unlike the majority of Apple Pay systems operating in the UK, Bestway’s terminal will have no ceiling on how much a customer can spend.
