The Impact Of Apple Pay On The Retail IT Channel And POS Resellers

By now, everyone in the reseller community should be aware of Apple Pay, Apple’s new mobile payment system.

Instead, device account numbers, a new NFC (near field communication) antenna design, touch ID, a dedicated chip called the Secure Element, and dynamic security codes are utilized to keep transactions secure and protect account information.  Apple has also assembled a line-up of the major payment networks, gateway providers, and high profile retailers to support Apple Pay out of the gate. Apple is hoping that its scale and reputation will be the catalyst to reenergize mobile payment adoption, which to date has been quite disappointing.

Part of a business’ growth potential comes in its ability to profit from successful channel partner relationships. However, a key component of this strategy is the symbiotic nature of these arrangements. A vendor’s business only benefits if its channel partner does, and the channel partner will benefit the most from the relationship if the vendor puts the time into making it a competitive reseller. So, it’s in everyone’s best interest to prepare the partners to maximize their potential. As a channel partner, how can you spot these programs?
