By now, everyone in the reseller community should be aware of Apple Pay, Apple’s new mobile payment system. With Apple Pay, the actual credit and debit card numbers are not stored on the device nor on Apple servers. 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.

How To Identify An Ideal Channel Program
As most businesses develop and expand, their lists of partnerships and alliances expand as well. This is not a coincidence.

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? It all comes down which vendors offer the proper training.
