Smartphone iD uses stripe google pay and apple pay as a payment method.

Apple Pay lets you make simple, secure, and private transactions within iD smartphone apps. Apple Pay is designed with your security and privacy in mind, making it simpler and more secure than your physical credit, debit, or prepaid cards.

Apple Pay relies on security features built into your device’s hardware and software to help protect your transactions. Also, to use Apple Pay, you must set up a passcode on your device. You can also use Face ID or Touch ID. You can use a simple access code or choose a more complex access code for even more security.

Apple Pay also guarantees the confidentiality of your personal information. Apple does not store or access the credit, debit, or prepaid card numbers that you use with Apple Pay. Likewise, when you use Apple Pay with these types of cards, Apple does not keep any transaction information that can identify you: your transactions remain between you, the seller or the developer, and your bank or your card issuer.

When you use an app that uses Apple Pay on iOS, the app can check if that payment service is enabled on the device. You can manage this option in Settings> Safari on your iOS device, as well as in the Privacy tab of Safari preferences on your Mac.

When you make a payment directly in an app, Apple Pay receives the information related to the encrypted transaction and re-encrypts it with a developer-specific key, before sending it back to the developer or the payment manager. This key ensures that only the app can access this encrypted payment information. Neither Apple nor your device sends your actual payment card number to the app.

Apple anonymously maintains certain transaction information (for example, the approximate amount of the purchase, the name and developer of the app, the approximate date and time of the purchase, as well as the indication transaction success or failure). This data enables Apple to improve some of its products and services, including Apple Pay.

When you use Apple Pay on your iPhone to confirm a purchase made in Safari on your Mac, your Mac and the authorizing device communicate over an encrypted channel through Apple servers. Apple does not keep any of this information in a form that could identify you personally. You can turn off the ability to use Apple Pay on your Mac in Settings on your iPhone. Go to Wallet and Apple Pay and turn off Allow Payments.
