TORONTO, Feb 11, 2021 – HONK, North America’s leading provider of contactless payments for parking, announced today the launch of a new contactless payment experience at more than 100,000 parking spots across Canada and the United States using App Clips in iOS 14. Now drivers with an iPhone can pay for parking in a matter of seconds, no installation or signup required.
Introduced by Apple with the launch of iOS 14, App Clips are a small part of an app that is discoverable the moment it is needed. Now drivers can use their iPhone to tap the NFC tag or scan the QR code located on parking meters or payment signs on-site to launch the HONK App Clip. Then, simply select the duration of the parking session and seamlessly pay using Apple Pay or another method. Drivers can also opt to receive parking notifications and add more time to the meter using the App Clip experience.
“App Clips are about to revolutionize parking in a very big way — and we are proud to be among the first to be paving the way with our innovative vision,” says Michael Back, HONK Founder and CEO. “By integrating App Clips into the HONK parking experience, we are empowering customers with an iPhone to pay for parking how they want — digitally, no touch — with zero barriers or restrictions. Never before has paying for parking been so quick and easy.”
Customers are calling for fast, simple, and safe ways to pay for everyday goods and services. And HONK has responded with innovative touch-free payment solutions, that make it quick and easy to pay for parking.
