BALTIMORE, June 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Parking Panda, the nation's leading app for on-demand parking in over 40 cities in the U.S. and Canada, today brings its customers Apple Pay, which is transforming mobile payments with an easy, secure and private way to pay that's fast and convenient.
Adding Apple Pay to the Parking Panda app helps take the parking industry to the next level with the most technologically advanced payment option. Apple Pay is now available to Parking Panda users in over 40 North American cities for on-demand parking reservations at thousands of parking garages, lots, and valets.
Security and privacy is at the core of Apple Pay. When you use a credit or debit card with Apple Pay, the actual card numbers are not stored on the device, nor on Apple servers. Instead, a unique Device Account Number is assigned, encrypted and securely stored in the Secure Element on your device. Each transaction is authorized with a one-time unique dynamic security code.
"Our goal since day one has always been to make parking as easy and painless as possible. Allowing customers to use Apple Pay provides a seamless and secure payment method," said Adam Zilberbaum, CEO of Parking Panda. "We are constantly looking for ways to improve our customer experience, and Apple Pay is a great fit for our on the go customers."
To celebrate the launch of Apple Pay, Parking Panda is offering customers a 10% discount off their Apple Pay purchases between June 23 and September 1. When using Apple Pay, customers will also be eligible to win a free month or a free year of parking. In addition, select Apple Pay customers will be included in a random drawing several times throughout the promotion period where they can win credits in the amount of their most recent Apple Pay purchase.
Apple Pay is easy to set up, and users will continue to receive all of the rewards and benefits offered by credit and debit cards. Online shopping in apps accepting Apple Pay is as simple as the touch of a finger with Touch ID, so there's no need to manually fill out lengthy account forms or repeatedly type in shipping and billing information. When paying for goods and services within apps, Apple Pay is compatible with iPhone SE, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 4 and iPad Pro.
