Just weeks after going live, Apple Pay is already one of the most popular payment platforms via the web, according to SimilarTech.
First introduced in October, Apple Pay on the web is already the fifth most popular payment platform for the top 10,000 websites. It’s currently available on 0.25 percent of those websites. This number is around 10 percent of market leader Paypal, which is on 2.36 percent of the top websites. Apple Pay also trails Paypal’s subscribe button (0.98 percent), Stripe (0.35 percent), and Braintree (0.32 percent).
Already, Apple Pay is more popular than Google Checkout and Amazon Payments for the top 10,000 websites.
To date, Apple Pay for web is only available on 1,035 websites, which makes its quick rise even more remarkable. Paypal and the Paypal subscribe button are available on 1.83 million websites, compared to 45,000 for Braintree, 38,000 for Stripe, and 13,400 for Google Checkout.
Apple is also the fifth most popular payment technology for the top 100,000 websites. A remarkable, quick rise, no?
