Apple Pay is coming to Apple’s browser, Safari, and Apple’s chat application, iMessage.

This means shoppers will be able to make purchases online from a web browser or a chat, not just at a brick and mortar location using a phone or watch. However, a phone or watch running iOS will still be required to confirm the payment (similar to how two-factor authentication works).

Apple has several large companies lined up to incorporate Apply Pay into their website checkout processes. With this move, Apple shoulders firmly into the space PayPal has ruled up until now.
