Why Apple Pay on Laptops Matters

The impact may be small, but retailers should consider adding Apple Pay to their e-commerce website, a payment expert says.

Apple Inc.’s newest MacBook Pro laptop is now equipped with Apple’s Touch ID fingerprint sensor, which is the hardware behind Apple’s one-touch checkout Apple Pay.

This gives e-retailers another reason to add an Apple Pay button to their websites, so a MacBook user can make a payment by pressing her finger to the sensor, authorizing her saved credit card to be charged.
