Apple Pay is one of the easiest methods to make payments on the web, in-store, and in-app. It is compatible with multiple devices and terminals and offers a safe way to make payments.

The Apple Pay ecosystem uses a host of Apple services to identify, validate, and authorize Apple Pay transactions. For example, it uses the data from Apple Maps to determine the name of the business that processes an Apple Pay transaction.

If your business name is not updated in Apple Maps, it may not appear or an incorrect business name may appear on the customer receipts and statements, which could lead to disputes.

Note: The incorrect business name appears because a nearby business has updated its name in Apple Maps, and Apple Pay picks up the nearest registered business name. To resolve such issues, Zenoti recommends you update your business name and address in Apple Maps.

This article lists the steps for the same.
