Topper by Uphold is a web3 payment API that allows users to buy over 200 cryptocurrencies within any project using local payment methods.
Recently, it announced the integration of Apple Pay and Google Pay to provide its users with more convenience, security, and accessibility when indulging in any crypto-related transactions using their mobile devices.
Apple Pay and Google Pay are widely accepted mobile payment systems that enable users to make contactless payments using near-field communication (NFC) technology.
They are both widely known for allowing users to store their payment cards, loyalty cards, tickets, and other documents digitally in their wallets.
Also, both systems are considered to be secure, as they use biometric authentication and tokenization to protect user data and transactions
By integrating Apple Pay and Google Pay, Topper by Uphold hopes to attract more users and projects to its platform, as well as to increase its approval rates and revenue.
According to Robin O’Connell, the CEO of Enterprise at Uphold, the integration will make it easier for users to buy crypto with just a few taps, without having to enter their card details or go through lengthy verification processes.
He also said that the integration will benefit web3 projects that use Topper by Uphold as their payment gateway, as they will be able to offer their customers more payment choices and a smoother user experience.
